Calis Travel Guide
Shopping A little way out of town is a lovely market that takes place on Sundays, with the usual selection of very well priced fake designer items, as well as spices, teas and foods. There is also a small selection of shops selling beachwear, sporting equipment, and local handicrafts.
Restaurants Calis has a variety of restaurants, with an emphasis on Chinese, English, and local Turkish cuisine. The Sultan Bakery is known for its great baklava, or you can visit the fish market in Fethiye and choose your own fresh seafood. The Meeting Point is a great spot for vegetarians.
Nightlife The nightlife in Calis is very laidback with a few late-night bars which host events like foam parties, karaoke and salsa nights, but for a wild party tourists can head to nearby Fethiye. Like most resorts, the most popular clubs are located along the beachfront.
Activities The beach in Calis is ideal for sunbathing and swimming, and there are more active pursuits available, including scuba diving, windsurfing and waterskiing. There are a number of activities to enjoy in Calis, including boat trips to nearby islands, jeep safaris, canoeing, horse riding, fishing, quad biking and micro lighting. The Sultans Aquacity waterpark, a stone's throw from the beach, provides a wealth of entertainment for families on holiday, and other watersports are also available during the day. A short distance from Calis you'll find the limestone hotsprings of Pamukkale, the mud baths of Dalyan, the gorge in Saklikent, the deserted village of Kavakov, and the archaeological and ethnological Fethiye Museum.
Negatives Calis is quiet, and not suited to those looking for a lively nightlife. It's best-suited to families and older couples.
