Çaliş Beach Will Be As Clean As A New Pin
Cleaning the stones from Çalış Beach was started by FETAB (Fethiye Tourism Association) and Çalış Tourism and Promotion Association. The cleaning process will allow the Caretta to climb the beach and nest easily.
Stones in the sea water at Çalış Beach which prevented the turtles climb the beach and gave rise to injury were subject of complaint quite often. FETAB will eliminate these complaints with a project. FETAB and Çalış Tourism and Promotion Association operate the beach together and they carry out a hard and devoted work. Stone cleaning work is progressing quickly with two excavators. Çalış Beach will start the new season free of stones and with changing rooms, showers and observation towers.
FETAB Head Osman Nuri Otgöz said “We started opeating Çalış Beach in 2011. We have detected deficiencies here with our association president Mete Ay. Stones in the sea caused injury to tourists and Carettas had hard time climbing the beach. We have received the necessary permissions in the first place for the cleaning process. Then we provided heavy machinary. We experienced some problems because sea water prevented damage to vehicles. Osman Yiğit accepted this difficult project. In the coming days we will tender for the changing rooms and showers. Fethiye has only one Çalış Beach. We work hard to provide the best service here. I am thankful to Mete Ay and the management for their support.”
