The resort itself has a good choice of restaurants, bars and shops. Nightlife is fairly low key for anyone looking for relaxed, easy paced holidays, but the neighbouring resort of Hisaronu has a much wider choice of lively bars and discos open into the early hours. A great choice for couples and families. Transfer time approx 1hr - 1hr 30 min.

All visitors to Turkey from 10th April 2014 will be required to purchase their entry visa via the Turkish Government website www.evisa.gov.tr prior to travel.

Maybe some varied night time activities for the middle age generation other than the Michael Jackson show, otherwise it's a lovely place and I would definitely go again.

Great location, with the busy strip of shops, diners, restaurants and hotels. Not too loud or late, great friendly people, lots of excursions to choose from. Would highly recommend 'Guide Tours' located on the main steep hill not far from the beach. There is an American/Australian lady with blonde hair who gave us very good advice on the excursions available, she gave us a good discount and was not at all pushy or intimidating like some of the tour operators can be. She was very open honest and friendly. Would highly recommend the famous paragliding experience, followed by the scuba diving which is very reasonable priced.

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.
