Rhodes is almost a stone's throw from Turkey and with its whitewashed villages and rich medieval castles, makes for a great daytrip. From Fethiye harbour, you'll ride a hydrofoil to Rhodes town, the capital, and have the day to explore its history-steeped streets.
The town is packed with attraction – with its picturesque harbour, new town and walled old quarter built by the Knights of St John. Tick through sights including the Street of the Knights, the vast Palace of the Grand Masters and 15th century Hospital of the Knights. Once you're done with history, explore the cobbled passageways – they're filled with fountains, churches and shops selling local handicrafts and delicacies. Or head for the new town's pavement cafés and chic boutiques.
And don't miss Mandraki harbour. Home to luxury yachts and waterfront cafés, it was once home to the legendary Colossus of Rhodes – one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
