Olu Deniz Holidays

Show on Map

Olu Deniz is famed for its blue lagoon nestling behind the end of a beach, backed by mountains. With no high-rises, Olu Deniz is also the least built-up resort in this area, and has calm waters for swimming.

Sea, scenery, situation

Families, friends and couples love this resort. It offers a choice of beaches, beautiful mountains to walk in and dozens of possible day trips, plus it’s close to busier towns.

Insider Tip

Olu Deniz is a magnet for paragliders due to its exceptional thermals. So why not take a tandem ride with an experienced pilot to see Turkey’s aquamarine seas and pine-clad mountain slopes from the air.

Best beaches

Plenty to choose from. Belcekiz Beach is the busiest and where the paragliders land. Pedalos are for hire at the Blue Lagoon which sits just behind the end of Olu Deniz Beach. Want to get back to nature? Kidrak Beach is in a nature reserve free of parasols, sunbeds, cafes and watersports. It shelves away quickly so is best suited to stronger swimmers.

Top sights

Near Dalyan there are ancient tombs carved into the rocks, mud baths and loggerhead turtles. At Pamukkale is the famous Cotton Castle – dramatic white cliffs of frozen calcium with bright blue pools. Nearby is the ancient Phrygian city of Hierapolis where there’s a well preserved ampitheatre, colonnaded streets and Roman tombs. You can even swim in an original spring-fed antique pool.

Out and about

Boat trips from Olu Deniz take in beaches along the coast plus an island with the ruins of a 2nd-century church. Meanwhile if you fancy some off-roading, enjoy a jeep safari to take in the ruined Ottoman cities of Tlos and Xanthos, and the Sakkilent Gorge, Europe’s second longest. And for those who think holidays are all about treating yourself, Olu Deniz has the Sanctuary Day Spa with its massages and treatments.

Eating and drinking

Olu Deniz has restaurants and bars to suit all tastes and budgets. If you want cheap eats and local fare, Kumsal Pride on the seafront is a must. For a superb fish meal, check out Hilmi et Balik Restaurant, run by a local family for decades. It’s actually inside the Fethiye fish market.


Fethiye offers varied shopping. The Grand Bazaar in the old town, known as Paspatur is traditionally Turkish, while the modern Erasta AVM mall is just like you’d find at home, with bowling and cinemas as well as shops. At less hectic Hisaronu, you’ll find a good mix of shops as well as a local outdoor market.


Some lively bars in Olu Deniz, including the Buzz Bar & Grill and the Help Bar, have dancing as well as drinks. But you don’t have to go far if you want a change of scene. Fethiye’s old town has a wider variety of bars and live music. And if you want to ramp it up further head to Hisaronu which comes alive at about 11pm. Its Talk of the Town drag show has been packing the crowds since 1994.
