Earlier this year we brought you an article about the Olive Garden in Kabak with its warm Turkish hospitality, scenic beauty, peaceful and quiet atmosphere and delicious food – all set amongst nature at it’s very best. A beautiful summer retreat.
The end of summer
Summer in Fethiye is almost at an end and many shops and restaurants are closing for the winter. Empty shopfronts and shuttered windows replace the bustling activity of the summer.
Fethiye winters, although rainy at times, can be lovely and warm with temperatures that rarely drop below an average of 10 degrees during the day. Some days they even reach the low twenties.
But where can you go to make the most of these balmy winter days?
A place for all seasons
Whether it’s spring, summer, autumn or winter, The Olive Garden at Kabak is open.
Spend a relaxing day in this wonderful location, experience the hospitality of Fatih and his team and enjoy a freshly prepared meal from the restaurant.
The heat haze that gives the summer views a permanent misty look, disappears in the winter leaving stunning views with vivid and vibrant colours, wonderful for photography, painting if you’re an artist or simply for just enjoying.
Winter walking with the Olive Garden
If you like walking and good food, the Olive Garden has the ideal day out for you.
Situated near to the Lycian Way, it is ideally located for walkers who want to tackle shorter stretches of this world-famous walk (and other walks in the area). The best time for this is during the winter months as it is just too hot in the summer.
During the winter months, the Olive Garden offers a tailor-made day out for groups of 8-11 people that includes a guided walk.
What does the day include?
Pick up service from most local areas to the Olive Garden (and back).
A guided walk in the Kabak, Faralya or Kirme area. There are various 6-10km walks on different trails that will suit all levels of experience.
A meal in the Olive Garden Restuarant at the end of the walk. There is an indoor restaurant with a soba (wood burner) for those chillier days and evenings.
You can choose between an early morning walk and finish off with breakfast/brunch or an afternoon walk and dinner.
Butterfly Valley to Kabak
Fethiye Times took a group along to try an early walk from Butterfly Valley via Aktaş Beach to the Olive Garden.
This is a 10km, 3.5-hour coastal walk with absolutely amazing views.
The walk itself is mainly easy to navigate paths however, there is some scrambling over rocks in parts.
All this was topped off with a delicious breakfast back at The Olive Garden.
A fabulous day and highly recommended…
What do you need to do?
Arrange your group of 8-11 people.
Agree with your group whether they want an easy walk or one that’s a bit more challenging.

A morning walk including transport, guided walk, and breakfast will cost you 50TL per person.
If you prefer to walk in the afternoon and stay for dinner the cost for transport and walking guide is 20TL per person plus whatever you order from the menu.
