Olu Deniz is a lovely area surrounded by mountains and the resort is very clean and the people are friendly. There are plenty of shops and bars to choose from but again as it was end of season a lot of these were closed so the choice was limited. It is a short bus ride to Hisaronu which is more lively with lots of choice.

We booked our first holiday to Olu Deniz 10 years ago and have returned every year since. There is so much to do and even this year we were still finding new things to do. I did a tandem paragliding jump but on other days liked to watch. It is like having daily entertainment available down at the beach all the time, which is where they land. We have previously done horse riding which is nearby and walked to the beautiful Blue Lagoon. Other things we have done were boat trips, parascending, snorkeling, Jeep safaris, shopping in the Mall at Fethiye along with Ten Pin Bowling and a visit to the fish market. <br /> <br /> We sourced out a bicycle hire shop in Fethiye but simply ran out of time, so we will save that until next time. There are so many restaurants to choose from in Olu Deniz and all serve high quality food and are not overly expensive. Bartering in the shops is a must which we found great fun in getting a bargain. You do not get harassed by shop keepers. They just wish to pass the time of day with you. Jewellery is inexpensive and all 3 ladies in our group came away with gold rings - two of which are for forthcoming Ruby Wedding Anniversaries. They are also happy to trade in your old gold items or make on the spot repairs which is what we did. As usual Olu Deniz lived up to it's expectations and we will continue to return each year.

The sea and beaches are clean and safe for swimming, the beach does slope down quickly - something to consider if you have small children. The beach has a sandy section but has pebbles as you reach the water. I couldn't find any toilet facilities on the beach itself. Sun loungers and umbrellas are available for hire, I paid 10TL for the sun lounger. Drinks are available close to the beach and some owners come onto the beach to offer ice coffee as well as other cold drinks. I went to fly my paraglider, it's one of the best places for paragliding so please be aware as the main sea front is the landing strip!

As usual it was very good. The resort was very quiet this year because of the troubles there have been Turkey. But these problems are hundreds of miles away and nowhere near the south west of Turkey.

Beaches

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.

Nearby Attractions

Take a trip to Butterfly Valley which is just 3km away and a wonderful sight. The large valley is surrounded by vertical rock and has a great variety of plants such as elm trees, eucalyptus, jasmine, mint and thyme as well as many different species of moth and butterfly. If you manage to climb to the top of the valley, you can grab a snack at the small restaurant that sits at the top.

Visit the ancient harbour town of Caunos which dates back to 3000BC. Among the ruins are a 5000 seat theatre and 4th century BC tombs that are like Greek Temples carved into the rock.

The mud baths of Dalyan are fun and relaxing, you can cover yourself in mud then wash it off in the hot springs. It's not only good fun but very good for the skin too and you will come away feeling revitalised.

The Dalyan area has also been designated a nature reserve and is home to at least 120 different species of bird and the loggerhead turtles come here to lay their eggs on the beach every year so if you are a lover of nature then this is the place to visit.
