We stayed here for 6 nights and it was heavenly most villas had a private beach on both sides and we went sea kayaking thanks to our incredible host Sahin who's villa can be found on airbnb. Lovely island just of Fethiye and that is a perfect place to relax.

We read some good things about Sovalye Island so thought it was a must-see when in Fethiye. When dropped off at the dock near the restaurant we asked the boatman (40TL each way) to come back for us 6 hours later, at sunset, assuming there would be plenty to see and do and we might even be pushing our time,...

Nonetheless the shallow clear waters on the far side of the island make it a fabulous place to swim and snorkel and picnic in the heat of the hottest... More

First visit here which was very peaceful - I imagine it could be hectic in the height of the summer. Sovalye should be fairly immune though as it is an island. About 3/4mile long with really one footpath along the length - the central section does have a small circular route. There are the remains of various (no doubt ancient)... More
