SOVALYE ISLAND (KNIGHTS ISLAND)
15 minutes across the water from the port of Fethiye lies the sleepy island of Sovalye - an island straight out of Swallows and Amazons. Sovalye is entirely pedestrianised with shady walkways through scented pine forests. No traffic means no roads: you cross the land by tracks, beaten or otherwise.
A leisurely walk from end to end takes 45-minute or so, along a coastline dotted with sand and shingle coves. In the crystal-clear water you can make out the ruins of earlier settlements dating back to late Roman times.
Inland, hidden amid the pines and carob trees, are the remains of a crusader castle, built by the Knights of St John after they crossed over from nearby Rhodes. Legend has it that the island became a base in the Middle Ages for renegade knights-turned-pirates.
You can circumnavigate Sovalye by canoe in about an hour or swim in two. The experience is just unique ; paddling or swimming over submerged houses, an old city wall, churches and a Roman cistern that was converted to a chapel during the Byzantine period. Elsewhere, old olive-oil pots and amphorae can be seen scattered across the seabed.
