Discover the peaceful natural oasis, away from bustling cities and resorts, at Butterfly Valley.

Look for the creek running through the valley and two small waterfalls here. A popular destination for swimming and scuba diving, the area also attracts visitors who come to hike or camp. Keep in mind that this mainly ecotouristic spot features all the necessary facilities, but most of them are basic.

  • Fethiye's most beautiful nature waterfall sea point. At least once in life you need to see a natural event.

  • This perfect isolated beach is paradise. Well worth the difficult trip to arrive (it's easy to arrive by boat) and a stay of at least 3 nights. Has a little backpackers hostel with bungalos beers, and good food
  • A beautiful beach, wonderful water and a very beautiful valley. Home for more than 20 butterfly species, especially jersey tiger. There are certain short times to see the butterflies gather all together in the valley, but in the summer time you can also see several butterflies while walking around... A beautiful wonder to be seen...
  • Trip from the ölüdeniz beach is about 20min by boat. Trip was smooth, sea was good. We rented the boat for 200TRY from in front of the beach. The Butterfly valley beach was not as it looks in the images, water is SUPER dirty and the floor is full of slippery rocks. Personally, I hate it. Notes: You can't go there by CAR, you only go by car from up to check the view. But there is no access to it what soever by car.
  • Beautiful, the sea is so clean.
  • Sadly on our visit we experienced a wholly unpleasant crowded, littered and unshaded beach. Fortunately for we were visiting temporarily as part of a boat tour which meant we were able to retreat to the boat and admire from a safe distance. The beach could do with better controls on visitors and more structures to improve hygiene and tidiness. I hope to return in the future. It's a beautiful little beach with loads of potential, shame about the current management that have allowed it to get ruined.
