A fab Mediterranean holiday!Fethiye – Turkey’s Turquoise Coast
As Fethiye is a very popular vacation destination for British holiday goers, most people in Fethiye and local resort Oludeniz speak fairly fluent English. You won’t find language barrier to be an issue that’s for sure.
Nearly half the restaurants at the harbour front serve the full English Breakfast. That's right, bacon, eggs, sausages, beans, toast and even black puddings (some advertising 'Heinz Baked Beans', 'Asda Sausage', and 'Tesco Bacon 'too!). Not to mention, serving curry, our national dish. Some restaurants also take much pride in serving Roast Beef and Roast Chicken with Yorkshire puddings on Sundays. A home from home, yes, but there’s so much more…
