Things to do in the area and general resort information

Hisarönü Village

Hisarönü is situated between Oludeniz and Ovacik and is 450 metres above sea level so it benifits from fresh mountain air making it slightly cooler than Oludeniz. This is by far the most lively resort in the area. Fifteen years ago there were only a few houses here but now it is a lively resort in its own right. Due to the planning restrictions and lack of space to expand in Oludeniz itself, many holidaymakers now stay in this lively village. It is in a stunning location, surrounded by stunning pine-clad mountains, and hotels are all built in the local style, low rise, mostly with rooms set in villa-style blocks and decorative wooden balconies. The beach of Oludeniz is just a short dolmuş ride away (approx. 15 minutes), and the town of Fethiye is also very close, approximately the same distance away in the opposite direction. You can, however, easily spend your time in Hisarönü , lazing by the pool, and venturing out at the night to sample international or local fare in one of the many restaurants or visit its lively bars playing music well into the early hours. There are plenty of shops with a wider range on offer than in Oludeniz itself.

Ölüdeniz

Oludeniz is the archetypal picture-postcard beach backed by dramatic pine-clad hills. Literally translated as ‘dead sea’, the stunning lagoon is a protected area, ensuring that its natural beauty is preserved. There is a small entrance charge to use the lagoon beach and only non-motorised watersports are allowed. The main resort beach is a long stretch of coarse sand and shingle beach known as Belceğiz. There is a strip alongside the seafront promenade with a number of relaxing bars and restaurants, serving local and international cuisine. Shops stay open well into the night. It is a perfect family resort, great for a laid-back beach holiday, with plenty of facilities but not too much development. Paragliding is a big draw with the descent from the Babadağ mountains to land on Belceğiz beach, rating as one of the best in the world. Oludeniz is 14 kilometres from the city of Fethiye and the winding road that leads you there is surrounded by pine trees. At the end of the road, before you reach Oludeniz, Belcekiz Cove with its wonderful blue sea welcomes you. The land around Oludeniz and the beach has been officially designated a protected area and has been converted into a National Park. If you walk along the beach the incomparable, calm sea of Oludeniz will enchant you with its sandy bottom and bright turquoise tones. The reflection of the pine trees on the water enriches the impression of the colours. There are numerous hotels and restaurants in the region but construction is strictly banned in the area of the Oludeniz Lagoon and the Kidrak Beach because these sites are classified as special protected areas.

Fethiye

Once a minor fishing village and market town, Fethiye has become a thriving tourist center in recent years due to the growing popularity of nearby Oludeniz and easy access to some fascinating sites. Fethiye was once a Lycian City and traces of the ancient settlement can be found around the town, which include the magnificent rock tombs on the face of the cliff.

Fethiye retains a decidedly Turkish feel. Exploring the warren of shop-lined streets in the old quarter is a fascinating experience. Restaurants are in abundance, and the authentic feel of Turkish life permiates the whole area , giving a real insight into town life in Turkey. On market day the roads are full of vehicles of all types – from old American trucks, to horse and carts spilling over with a manner of produce destined to create the vibrant colours and smells of the market.

The area boasts a good nightlife at the height of the season and now even through the winter months, with many bars and discos. There is an excellent choice of restaurants from traditional Turkish lokantas to large, stylish restaurants offering a wide range of international cuisine.
