Thousands of people visit Gemiler Island every year but often leave with little idea of why it is such an important part of Fethiye’s local history.

A  comprehensive guide

Finally, there is a new and long overdue guide to the island so, when wandering around the fascinating site, people will have a better idea of what happened there in centuries gone by.

A Guide to Gemiler Island

Pocket size but packed with information

With contributions from the Japanese team of archaeologists and British author, journalist and guide, Jeremy Seal, the book is small enough to slip into a pocket, but packed with photographs and information. Complete with a comprehensive, simple to follow map, the booklet contains an outline of the island’s history, myths and legends, descriptions of the most significant buildings, details of the walks, a map, and much more besides.
