An amazing experience and so glad I walked to the top chapel to see Meditteranean. Wear good joggers. Slippery in parts on way down. Take plenty of watee. There is an original house remaining with roof.

seeing the ruins interesting but there was nothing else to do unless you want to shop in tourist shops that are all the same.

We had a walk from Oludeniz to Kayakoy. When planned this walk, didn't propose that high point of our walk is about 2000 m! Beautiful veiws of Oludeniz and nearest islands, forest, etc. - everything finished good!

We travelled with our 5 & 7 year old and we all loved every aspect of this "ghost town". Saying it was a ghost town to our kids made it all the more intriguing and kept them walking to the top of the mountain where they can get a view of the village down below. Comfy shoes are a must.... More

The town was resettled which the exchange of Christians and Muslims with Greece. The hike is moderately strenuous and connects to hiking trails linking Oludeniz and other towns. Dolmus run ever 30 minutes from Fethiye and cost 5 TL.

Liked the history of the area but disliked the heat as little shade in which to shelter and only 1 small shop to purchase drink from

lovley area stunning mountains and forest. You really can get away from it all here. Slightly cooler than hisaronu and oludeniz and the food a little higher priced but no boom boom music and general quality of everything better than hisaronu. Dong get me wrong we also like hisaronu for the odd evening out but would not want to stay... More

A fair bit remains of what must once have been a spectacular town. Well worth a visit, though its all set on a mountain side so there's a fair bit of uphill walking. Not much else there other than a few stalls, shops and bars. The dolmus (bus) goes back and forth from Fethiye every 25 mins.

Would recommend taking a visit to the ghost town if your anywhere near the area. It's a beautiful and strangely fascinating place when you consider the history behind the repatriation of its residents. Probably worth having a quick read of it's history and the context before you go to make sure you get the most out of it. We went... More
