With so much to see and do, you may have to stay longer than planned...
In spite of Mandarin's tranquil setting, there is much to be explored from here. Please scroll down to view some of the featured attractions on an interactive map, or click here to view the map in a separate window.
The Lycian Way
Mandarin stands alongside this ancient trail linking Fethiye with Antalya, and whilst its full 500km-length would be beyond the scope of most holidays, some of the most popular stretches are right on your doorstep.
Keen walkers will enjoy descending this stunning valley fronted by a beautiful beach.
A justly popular beach resort, beautifully situated beside a lagoon that has become one of Turkey's most photographed images.
Mount Cragus Babadağ
Enjoy the unique experience of a tandem paraglide flight from a height of 1,970 metres towards the famous lagoon at Oludeniz.
A bustling local town. Stroll along the picturesque harbour, barter for bargains in the colourful market, treat yourself to a massage in a traditional Turkish hamam, or visit the ancient rock tomb of King Amyntas and the fascinating archaeological museum. You can even take a hydrofoil to pop over to the Greek island of Rhodes.
The deserted Greek village of Kaya
Set in a fertile valley, the atmospheric "Ghost Town" and the sleepy village below are well worth a visit.
Gocek and the Twelve Islands
Enjoy a boat trip from the harbour at Gocek to the picturesque "Twelve Islands" on board a traditional wooden gulet.
Kalkan and Kas
Situated on an almost circular bay, Kalkan has grown from a humble sponge-fishing village to a sophisticated resort boasting an excellent selection of shops, bars and restaurants. Kas is a bustling harbour town built on the site of ancient Antiphellos and retains an authentically Turkish atmosphere.
The walk through this imposing gorge is a truly memorable experience, whilst the energetic can explore the Saklikent river by kayak or canoe.
