Calis Beach is a fantastic location. The beach is shingle but great swimming, recommend little swimming shoes, we bought these in Lidl on beach front,cost£4. We were there in June, struggled to find enough shade on Calis so spent most of our time at the Help beach and yacht club, which is absolutely fantastic. It was a 15 minute taxi ride costing £15 return. Sun beds and umbrella cost £10 per person, great swimming service to sunbed and superb restaurants. Also recommend the boat trips to the island, a full day including lunch, around £15 depending who you book with. Pick up at hotel around 10 and return around 6pm, swimming off the biat at all the islands, absolutely wonderful. Spoiled for choice with restaurants in Calis. Disappointed we couldn't book Ada restaurant, accessed by boat as it was fully booked on my list for next visit.
We stayed in Harmon Hotel, it is 24 years old and a little tired but it was absolutely spotless clean, both rooms public areas and breakfast areas. Clean sheets and towels every 2 days, have read some negative comments on the Hotel we were recommended by friends and will definitely be going back. Staff helpful friendly and humorous, helpful with all our requests 😀

We have just returned from Calis Beach Turkey.

We once owned an apartment in this resort from 2010-2016

This was the second time since 2016 we have returned to Calis beach and have decided it will be our last.

Unfortunately things have changed since 2010 and not for the better.

The traffic has quadrupled to the levels of the sound of vehicles from the hotel virtually all night and day.

The food is much more expensive and the portions far smaller than previous visits.

Calis Beach seems to have gone down in my opinion the pavements are very unstable in places.

The local shops offering fake designer wear, bags etc are no longer appealing and the owners can sometimes be rude if you do not take a look at their fake products.

We stayed at the Oykun Hotel for the second time the first time in 2018 but the hotel is in a time warp needs updating badly full refurbishment and new sinners and umbrellas which the existing ones must be at least 20 years old.

We loved Calis Beach in the past and have very fond memories but for us we will not be returning.

The resort has changed and in places is very dirty and unkept.

Very sad but that’s life

We went in 2019 September coming up for end of season
We book up a small hotel based on the sea front ( name of hotel escapes me at moment will fill in another time ) , stayed for 10 days , we are lucky enough to have friends who come over yearly and we arranged to meet up , and show us about , we stayed as B&B so ate out every night, the hotel’s breakfast was 2 star , which was a shame as they could of done so much better.
On a previous trip we went to the Blue Logon , very nice beach area, and hang gliders too
We loved the Sunday market, olive gardens is a must to go too. The food restaurants that the locals go to are cheaper than along the front,
It’s a shame the beach is not cleaned every day, as by the time we were there it was fag butt beach, (they don’t love there beach )

There’s some locals who try there luck to fleece you with there wears, but unlucky for the them the local constabulary were about.

Every restaurant along the front we ate in were super friendly, and you always find a funny guy, the bars all have telly’s for the football fans, the local beers is good too.

The weather is what makes me happy, the locals are great , taxis are cheap,
I will add more as I remember it.
Can’t wait to go again, for longer I think as it’s so cheap to eat out and live out there . Not many places I want to go back to again. This is number 2 on my list , of places to revisit.

Been coming here for 20 years and it was always well known for its friendly cheap meals especially for big families but honestly never known it so expensive. Not even like you get your monies worth. Most restaurants are mediocre if not poor meals and alcoholic drinks out are cheaper to buy in England now. They are literally ripping people off left right and centre. It’s a disgrace and sadly I think it will come around and bite them in the a@@@. Olu Deniz is now cheaper than here (that was unheard of!) and 20 times more beautiful and fun for kids!

Just returned from Calis Beach and it didn't live up to expectations. It seems that prices have increased but quality has gone down. As an aside, just a note on withdrawing cash from the ATMs, people should be aware that most of them now charge a fee of 6.99% on top of the usual 11 TRY, so avoid using travel money cards for this and take cash with you. There are a few restaurants on the beach front and main street that offer great food and drink at a reasonable price and we'll review them separately but the good old days of free starters and shots afterwards etc. seem to have gone. I appreciate that everyone is trying to recoup their losses from the last couple of years but all in all, they don't seem too bothered and once they've enticed you in are not very attentive. Outside of the hotels and away from the waterfront and the place is a bit of a dump. Around every corner the streets are littered with rubbish. The left hand end of the seafront towards the nature sanctuary is now very rundown and whilst we never felt unsafe, it's not somewhere that looks very inviting. Maybe if we had been able to take our holiday when we booked it 3 years ago it would have been good but sadly I don't think it was worth holding out for. Several 'regulars' that we spoke to, said that it was much busier and not as good quality as it used to be and unfortunately I'd have to agree. Calis Beach, we won't be back.

We have spent two weeks at Calis beach,staying in an apartment which is on the beach.
The beach itself is not sandy,it is mostly made up of small pebbles,the water is warm,the water gets deep quite quickly so anyone with children need to be aware of this.The beach is reasonably clean,but there is a certain amount of litter present,lots of cigarette stubs.
The promenade runs the length of the beach,the council keep this relatively tidy with men sweeping it fairly regularly.
The restaurants that line the prom are generally quite cheap(2 course meal for two and bottle of local wine for about £20.00),the food is bit of a let down,it’s just tourist grub,the ingredients not always of the best quality,I would score the food overall 5/10.
There are street dogs living on the prom and they enter the restaurants (they seem to be accepted by the people who work there,only occasionally shooing them out)
They woke me up several mornings barking,this is a nuisance when you’ve had a few Efe’s the night before.
There is a water taxi which takes you to Fethiye,takes about 20 minutes and costs about a pound,not much in Fethiye but worth the trip.
The Sunday market in Calis is very good,full of local characters (they shout things like”cheaper than the salvation army’ ‘this is all real fake genuine crap’)
All in all I enjoyed my time in Calis,would I return,probably not.

My first and last time in Fethiye and Calis beach. Stayed in Sundia hotel, so didn't have too many options. Beach is narrow, has coarse sand, which is not bad itself, but the water is murky at all times. Water is flat in the morning and very choppy in the afternoon. Temperature of the water reaches 29 degrees end of August, so it is not even refreshing to swim in. There is nothing to do on this beach, only saw parasailing and windsurfers and kite surfers at one end of the beach (1.5 km away)
We took two boat trips (one from Fethiye and one from Olideniz) to wonderful turquois bays where swimming was really enjoyable. Also Oludeniz beach seems as a better option - very pretty and clear sea.

I have visited here in August 2020 - it was very quiet due to Covid but that made it better for us ! The friendly shop keepers and cafe bar owners had started to open up again after lockdown similar to UK and were grateful of any trade. They were all working hard to ensure their premises were clean and Covid free, wearing masks, taking temperatures and making hand sanitiser available for all, so we felt safe and relaxed. This is a friendly small area, with lots of bars, which welcomes tourists from all
over the world ! There are shops for clothes, shoes, handbags and haggling is a must.
I really liked it here and would recommend it as safe for families with children.

This is apparently one of the best reviewed beaches in the area. Not sure why.
Views are beautiful but the beach itself isnt great. A pebbly beach with lots of rubbish on it.
The bars and restaurants on the beach front are ok .

The one good thing was how quiet it was on the day that we went.
The one thing we did do that we would strongly recommend was the sunset walk back to Fethiye centre. Beautiful!!
