The region between Atatürk Caddesi (the major road along the harbor) and Arş Caddesi is considered to be Fethiye's Old Town. The dolmus (minibus) station in Fethiye is conveniently located a short distance away from the marina. This station is where you can take a bus to the old town. The cruise ship docks in the middle of Old Town, making it convenient for passengers to visit the area's many stores, markets, and marina on foot.

Fethiye Old Town (Paspatur), with its yacht-lined coastline and maze-like bazaars, is where most visitors spend their time, even though the contemporary city and beach are to the north. There is a wide variety of places to eat, drink, and relax in the Old Town.

The narrow alleys and cobblestone alleyways of Fethiye Old Town can make maneuvering with strollers and wheelchairs difficult.
