Noisy Main Street after 10pm. Too hot beach side, cooler in the mountains, air conditioning is a must. Too much hassle from business owners and staff, most people like to look at their leisure instead of feeling under pressure. Mostly a Turkish resort with most men chain smoking. Nice beach and short promenade. Never book a tour with a holiday rep because the prices are 40% cheaper elsewhere.

4th time to this resort, the food in the restaurants is fantastic so I would only book bed and breakfast or maybe room only. Best beach is Billies Beach. This sits on the blue lagoon and there is a soft sandy beach with aquamarine water, not too deep and would be ideal for families. Only warning is don't buy the perfume on the strip as it's water.

A lovely resort that has much beauty, but also can be a lively resort with many bars, restaurants and shops to suit all tastes. The local busses are very frequent and cheap allowing for some sight seeing. If you like boats there are many that depart from Olu Deniz taking you on a trip round local islands, allowing you to swim off the boat and serving a barbecue lunch, at very reasonable prices. There is also a water park nearby and a small fairground in Hisaronu. It is also a main area for paragliding, has many scuba diving centres, quad bike trips and jeep safaris. In fact it has something for everyone.

It was lovely going back and finding that Olu Deniz is just as beautiful as we remembered it. The gorgeous beaches, the busy town with its lively bars, restaurants and shops were still the same. The many boats waiting to take you on a trip round round the islands where you can swim from the boats followed by a barbecue lunch. As a noted paragliding centre you are never far from a parachute, but if you prefer there are quad bikes to ride or jeep safaris to venture on. The very frequent local busses wait to take you sight seeing to places such as Hisaronu or Fethiye. Hisaronu also has a small fairground and a short ride away you'll find a modern water park. Old or young there's something for everyone.

Resort has stunning views, only problem was no proper bars they were either fun bars which did the same routines every night all tables were pushed together too closely and also they all served food, except turtle bar but this was also a fun pub. All restaurants and bars that served food had too many options on menu so food was never going to be nice, they need to cut down on menus as less is better.

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.
