I love Olu Deniz I've been four times, plenty to do for all ages. Amazing food at great prices, plenty of shops to spend your money! There's an amazing atmosphere in the bars at night and if you fancy a quiet one the beach bars are perfect. I will definitely return next year however not to the Karbel hotel.

Olu Deniz is a small seaside village with a lovely beach and also the infamous Blue Lagoon. There are daily inexpensive boat trips visiting locations along the coast, also paragliding facilities if you are adventures. There are lovely places to eat delicious meals, some with free entertainment. Would recommend.

Loved the area. Loved the people. Wouldn't recommend going to the Blue Lagoon. We visited the lagoon just 3 years ago and was a beautiful untouched piece of loveliness. I'm visiting this year 2017, it's now been turned into a cheap over run beach front with far too many sunbeds and with high numbers of people seemed to be standard for rubbish dumped across the beach. Commercialised and now just a busy beach. Such a shame. <br /> <br /> Would recommend most trips. We hired a private boat for the 8 of us, cost us £30 per person but well worth it to swim at sea with lunch included. 4 stops in coves. Really good fun and you're out from 10am to 5pm. The local beach just 5 minutes walk is great. You get to see the paragliders landing there. Fabulous to see them floating in the sky daily. If your brave enough it's £60 to have a go if you dare. We tried most of the pubs. Full English breakfasts are fab about £3.50 for the full breakfast. Would recommend Turkish bath within a day of starting your holiday, relaxing and your skin tans better after exfoliation. You'd be mad not to. Turkey is fabulous and cheap to holiday for Brits. I'd go back again but would ensure we go for a 4/5 star hotel next time the place itself is fantastic. Hope this review has helped you decide to go to Olu Deniz area. You'd be mad not to.

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.

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.
