Calis Beach Fethiye Turkey (in Turkish “chalish” & pronounced “Chalish”, is a quiet yet busy holiday resort, with a seemingly endless beach. Bars and restaurants line the beach area, which is block paved along the seafront. The resort is very flat, so is ideal for people with mobility restrictions. Calis has it’s own waterpark too.
Parts of the Calis Beach are also popular with the local turtle population, who come in to lay their eggs in the sand. Read a short article about the turtles here: Sea Turtle Project
