All you have to do is take a stroll along the Fethiye Marina and you will see hundreds of yachts in all shapes and sizes.
I don't know anything about boats or yachts or what I would have called a sailboat. Apparently, there are dry sailing yachts, weekender yachts, cruising yachts, luxury sailing yachts and racing yachts. I'm sure you can find all of these varieties while you are vacationing in Fethiye.

I just like to sit back and admire the yachts from afar. I would've liked to take a day tour on one of the wooden yachts, but we just didn't have enough time during our recent trip here. There are plenty of companies offering day and sunset cruises.

Instead, I took several photos, mainly from our hotel room at the Alesta Yacht Hotel, where we had a perfect view of the Fethiye Marina.

This is definitely a pleasant place to spend a weekend.

I loved the way the sky looked in this photo.

Great photos Joy. It always feels strange to see photos of Fethiye on other blogs - nice strange, though. :) Glad you enjoyed your visit again and hopefully, we'll get more time to catch up next time we meet.

@Julia, Thanks so much! You can't help but take lovely photos along the water in Fethiye. Yes, hopefully, next time we'll be able to catch up some more.

@Joyce, So do I! :)

Lovely photos - this view of Fethiye is one of my favorites. The Alesta Yacht Hotel is a great place to stay and I especially like the lone sail boat pic! I sail this area with my family - it is so beautiful. ♥
