Butterfly Valley, Fethiye

3.2
#3 of 6 in Nature in Fethiye
Discover the peaceful natural oasis, away from bustling cities and resorts, at Butterfly Valley. Nestled between the sea and Babadag Mountain and surrounded by steep cliffs, the secluded valley is home to over a hundred different species of butterflies. 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.

    It's not nature and humanity that I gave you points. PET bottles and cigarette butts are crowded, casual hunters boats.. A chaos of course. The same word on everyone's lips. No Butterfly! No.. You go in the off-season, camp, I suggest to choose day theres week. Boats available round-trip is $20. Don't lose the ticket you pay in advance. Return on the same ticket. It takes half an hour to Oludeniz beach. Opening hours 10.00 11.00 14.00 17.00.

    Sea is very nice. I have to go with rubber shoes. The sea in block one walks into rocks.

    Human hand protecting the beauty because they reach more here. There are no butterflies maybe used to. At the end of the Valley to flow there is no need to give money but reluctant even if you don't see the waterfall. The sea is perfect for diving.

  • I took a private speed boat out to the gorge. We loved it though a bit bumpy. A great spot to go and take a hike. Make sure its the right time/season to go otherwise the crowds will turn you off.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Where to stay in Fethiye

The multifaceted seaside region of Fethiye offers an equally diverse array of accommodations. In the immediate town, guesthouses with basic rooms or dormitory-style accommodations sit just a short walk from the marina, shopping, restaurants, and nightlife. North of town along the coast, you'll discover a strip of many inexpensive seaside hotels. For a more secluded holiday, venture inland among the valleys and hills to one of the guesthouses or fully equipped cottages. If it's authenticity you're after, seek the privacy of a secluded inn in the heart of the local villages. Here you'll trade convenience for coziness and hospitality.
