Beaches

They don’t call it the turquoise coast for nothing. Olu Deniz is a dream come true when it comes to beaches. Think stretches of white and golden sandy shore, crystal-clear waters and cloudless skies with beaming sunshine. Olu Deniz Beach is a top pick for holidaymakers, with its sweeping soft sands spanning most of the city’s coast. The curved beach meets the calm, sparkling Mediterranean Sea and offers a fantastic selection of shops, cafes and bars nearby, making it a perfect pick for a long day out by the seaside. At the western tip of Olu Deniz Beach is Kumburnu Beach, home to the famous Blue Lagoon – a picture perfect setting. Dip into the out-of-this-world blue waters or unwind on a lounger in the sand. One thing’s for sure, you’ll be leaving with plenty of photographs of these beautiful sands.

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 for Lunch

Try traditional Turkish cuisine on the beautiful Turkish coast. Olu Deniz features lots of restaurants serving the local delights, so you can indulge in the typical cuisine whenever you like! Try succulent kebabs and koftas if you’re a big fan of meaty dishes, or for something vegetarian but still scrumptious, try courgette fritters (mucver) – delicious. To get a full range of tastes and textures, mezes are also a popular option, which are small dishes usually served as starters and can include bread with delightful dips, meats, roasted veg and seafood.

If you like variety in your meals, there are plenty of restaurants in the town centre and near the beach that offer cuisine from around the globe. Indian, Italian, American and even British restaurants can be found in Olu Deniz, so if you have had your fair fill of kebabs and mezes, you can easily find something different to eat. Although, in our eyes you can never get enough of Turkish food.

Those with a sweet tooth will love Turkish delight, which you can find in so many different flavours, including pistachio, rose, mint, orange and lemon. Don’t miss out on baklava either, an amazing pastry bite soaked in either syrup or honey and that sometimes has crushed nuts in too. Be careful though, once you have one it’s hard to stop. To keep refreshed, there are plenty of bars in Olu Deniz. The most popular local beer is Efes and the local spirit is Raki.
