Map of the area

Sorry folks, another daft question :-\

Can anyone point me in the direction of a map i can buy, either before i travel or when i get to Ovecik? Something which covers a few square miles including Fethiye. It will help me get my bearings so i can venture further afield than the hotel :)

Oh, dolmus routes would be a big bonus too ;)

Thanks, Sean and Malwina

Why don't you just use GoogleEarth and then do a screenprint of the areas that you're interested in ?  ;)

I had thought about that but to be honest i was hoping there was a ordinance survey type of pocket map or something similar. I've got a good one of Fuerteventura that's helped me out over the years, lots of local and geographical info good for walkers, that kind of thing. I've had a quick scoot around Amazon and it wasn't much help. A few for sale with 20 odd year old maps in them:D Maybe a tad out of date ;)

There hasn't been much change in road terms for quite a while so a Fethiye map a few years old would serve a purpose. They used to crop up on ebay too but I haven't seen one for ages.

There are straightforward street maps for sale in most petrol stations in the area but if you want OS quality maps your best bet is to get on the Russian Army Maps website. The Reds have surveyed most of the Western World in minute detail and have produced OS maps for most places including Fethiye and the rest of the Med and Aegean. Just be aware though that everything on the maps is in Russian.

Buses from Fethiye go down  the main road to Hisaronu turn at bottom of village and go down to Olu Denis.  They will have a notice in front to say which way they are going. So you are able to go to Hisaronu, Olu Denis and Fethiye from the main road in Ovacik.
In Fethiye stay on till end of route and there are dolmuses that will take you to other places.  Or you can just wander round Fethiye.
