Sovalye island (Knights Island) is directly situated opposite of the Fethiye Harbour. It is only around 15 minutes across the water from the port of Fethiye.
Sovalye Island is completely pedestrianized with paved walkways.
It is the only island with property building permissions in this region however, very tight restrictions apply if you are wishing to buy land and build a property. This is due to historical ruins belonging to the Roman Empire times.
This island was a base for the legends who were protecting the city and coastline from the pirates. This base was built by the Knights of St John.
It is now popular for the wealthy local businessmen and international investors who wish to buy a property by the sea in Fethiye. Although the property prices are more expensive than the city, it is still more affordable compared to Kalkan and Gocek. Some of the owners also have the privilege of having their own platforms in the sea here. Please let us know more about this special location and check our available properties here.
