Tarzan Bay

Located a short distance from Fethiye is a stunning bay with crystal clear waters and abundant sea life. Tarzan bay is commonly visited on 12-island Day Cruises from Fethiye but multi-day Blue Cruises also stop here to enjoy swimming and snorkelling. You could also explore the bay in an open-top canoe or just relax on the beach watching as people launch themselves from the rocks and into the sea.

This particular bay is known as a superb spot for diving, the dive site is 25 meters deep with good entrances and exits making it suitable for beginners as well as experienced divers. Entering the bay you can swim down into 5 meters of crystal-like water. Below the sea, you can find Greek and Roman Amphora's which, for unknown reasons, never arrived at there destinations. Instead, they have remained on the sea bed for thousands of years and small fish have made their homes inside the ancient jugs. Tarzan bay is also home to a wide variety of sea life including giant groupers, eels, octopuses and countless species of colourful fish.

Other popular dive sites around Fethiye include Samanlik Bay, Cleopatra's Bath and Red Island.

The biggest attraction of this bay is a lone tree which stands on the rocks with a rope swing attached to one of its branches. This famous tree is rightfully known as Tarzan's Tree and brave individuals line up to unleash their inner Tarzan; swinging from the rope, over rocks and into the cool turquoise water.
