Olu Deniz, Dalaman Region, Turkey

A great choice for couples and families. Transfer time approx 1hr - 1hr 30 min.
The main Belcegiz beach in Olu Deniz is shingle and pebbles, backed by an attractive promenade lined with small shops, cafes and restaurants. Man-made sandy beaches can be found around the lagoon.
The Blue Lagoon is a protected area and a national park where visitors pay a small entrance fee to use its beach. The crystal clear water makes it a safe place for children to swim and ideal for a variety of watersports. There are also several private beach clubs around the lagoon where a dolmus shuttle service is often available.
Kidrak beach, also known as Paradise Beach, is environmentally protected and a more secluded and quieter option, around 3km from the Belcegiz beach of Olu Deniz.
The Butterfly Beach is mostly accessed by boat though for the adventurous trekker there is a rocky path option. This amazing untouched beach is a popular camping spot with travellers, with basic facilities there is no electricity, only a small restaurant and simple beach huts.
Things to Do
A visit to the Blue Lagoon is a must, for a small entrance fee enjoy the watersports or, simply paddle in its crystal clear water while soaking up the suns rays and basking in the beautiful surroundings.
Take a leisurely boat trip and cruise the coastline, or if that's too slow hire a speedboat, enjoy a banana boat ride or parasail across the bay and enjoy the amazing view.
Paragliding is a popular activity from the adjacent Babadag Mountain and also host of the annual International Air Games. Every October numerous paragliders fill the air pulling all manner of stunts. Micro-lighting is an alternative to paragliding, a bit like a go-kart with wings.
Out and About
The resort is quiet and relaxed with plenty of cafes and restaurants, while along the beachfront are a number of music bars open to the early hours. For those seeking a livelier night scene the neighbouring resort of Hisaronu is just a short dolmus ride away.
The shops in Olu Deniz cater for all the tourists needs, with souvenirs and beach items aplenty. Hisaronu has a wider selection or travel a little further to the town of Fethiye, well known for its carpets, leather wear and good prices.
