Welcome to our second ‘Winter Walk’ article.
Our first walk took in the first section of the Lycian Way from Ölüdeniz to Faralya so this time we thought a more sedate stroll was the order of the day.
With this in mind we set off to walk from the Fethiye town square, Beşkaza along the kordon to Akarca (by the lighthouse).
It was a beautiful sunny Sunday morning, perfect weather for walking although there was a nip in the air due to the snow on the mountains…after all, it is December.
It’s level going all the way so ideal for those who don’t want too energetic a walk.
As always, the scenery is stunning.
Stopping for breaks
There are plenty of cafes and restaurants where you can stop for a break. Sunday is the only day off for Turkish people and families come out to enjoy breakfast in the winter sunshine.
What else is there to see?
There is always plenty to see when you walk this route.
The familiar sight of fisherman waiting patiently for a catch.
Some people just like to sit and ponder.
Others go about their daily business.
This branch decorated with gourds just sits at the edge of the water.
It’s winter and the seagulls flock back to the harbour in search of food.
Even the ducks were out for a walk.
The fish bait shops are now situated by the lighthouse in Akarca and are open for business all year.
This brought us to end of our walk …all that was left to do was turn round an go back the way we came.
8km round trip and 4 hours walking….a great way to spend a Sunday morning!
