Destination Guide to Turkey

Specific to Fethiye

Water sports

For water sports enthusiasts, this area also enjoys a wide array of activities including windsurfing, water skiing, bananas, ringos or donuts, canoe hire, and pedaloes and both Ölü Deniz beach and Belcekiz beach offer a selection of these as well as Gemiler beach.


Ölü Deniz has been a centre for paragliding for over the past decade, hosting annual competitions. Our local operators, Sky Sports, boast expert support and knowledge of the local area and conditions, ensuring the experience of a lifetime.

Scuba Diving

The diving in Fethiye is perhaps the most varied in Turkey, including wall, reef, cavern, tunnels and archaeological dives. Diving may be arranged with Divers Delight, professionally managed by Murat and Yasar.

Please ask your host for further information on diving, water sports and paragliding which they will be happy to arrange for you.

Unfortunately we are not able to offer any jaunts in the Bozburun area.

Please note that any activities not organised through the Discerning Collection are undertaken at your own risk and you should ensure that operator’s licences are in order. It is important to check that your holiday insurance covers you for all activities, with extra premiums being paid (if required) prior to your departure.

Important Information

As with all sporting activities, there is the potential for accident or injury and so, with your safety in mind, we would like to highlight the following points.

We are very keen that every activity you participate in should be both safe and enjoyable and to this end, we have ensured that – as a minimum – all suppliers used by Discerning meet all local safety requirements, are fully insured and are licensed to operate. If you book excursions or activities through other agencies or companies, the Discerning Collection will not have carried out any checks and so it is your responsibility to ensure that the operator has adequate insurance and is licensed to operate.
