Bedri Rahmi Koyu, gün doğumundan hemen sonra..

Bedri Rahmi Bay is one of the most popular bays in the Fethiye Gulf, which is located opposite of the Tersane Island (Dockyard) and known as Tasyaka Bay. Bedri Rahmi Eyüboglu was a great writer and poet of Turkey and also was a very well known artist. He and his close friends were the first blue voyagers of the country who discovered the beautiful Lycian coast and informed people about these beauties. On one of his cruises, he painted a fish on a rock behind a fountain of the bay in 1973, and ever since the bay has been called by his name. The bay is well protected against the wind and suitable for anchoring. Pine, olive trees and oleander flowers on the surrounding slopes, small beach and crystal - clear water complement the historical remains on the hill and create an idyllic setting. There are many Lycian rock tombs hidden behind the trees, as well as ones shaped like pigeonholes on a great rock. You can also see a rock tomb with an ornamented door and a triple tomb on the slope. According to the ancient historians, the city that is located behind of the hill was the Lycian town Crya.
