Faralya sits on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey and is officially part of the bigger Ununyurt village.

Things to Do and Getting Around
Much of the lure of Faralya is its quiet, unobtrusive atmosphere making it a beautiful place for yoga retreats or just to relax and unwind among the glory of Fethiye’s flora and fauna. However, from time to time, people want to venture out in which they have a stunning array of landscapes close by.
The Blue Lagoon and Oludeniz beach are widely talked about, and the first is also one of the most photographed destinations in the world, giving testimony to its popularity. Kayakoy Ghost Village is the top tourist attraction in the area and ideal for walkers, and history lovers who also enjoy sampling the traditional dishes of local restaurants.
Nearby, the community of Kelebek Vadesi, known in English as “Butterfly Valley” believes in living at one with nature and this is evident in the rustic atmosphere of their bar, restaurant and camping site. Butterflies only appear during the breeding season, but the main attractions are trekking to the back of the canyon and snorkelling in the crystal blue sea.
