Ölüdeniz is located on the South-Western coast of Turkey at the foot of the Taurus Mountains. A very long coastline scattered with numerous sandy beaches and tiny coves along with it’s nature reserve status makes Ölüdeniz a highly desired destination for travelers. The blue lagoon at Ölüdeniz is one of the most photographed beaches in the Mediterranean due to it’s famous waters with shades of turqouise and aquamarine. Unsurprisingly it is rated as one of the top 5 beaches in the world. It’s location next to Mountain Baba Dağ makes it a popular place for paragliding, a magical experience giving panoramic views of the bay.
Hisarönü is the main location of all the resorts and just a quick bus ride to Ölüdeniz. The town is an ideal place for walkers, with a coast full of secluded bays and coves, accessible through footpaths. Due to it’s a higher altitude, Hisarönü is somewhat cooler and less humid than the neighbouring town of Fethiye. Besides heading to one of the many beaches at Ölüdeniz, the town is full of shops selling everything from clothing to carpets. There is a strip of legendary night clubs in Hisarönü, with Help Beach Lounge being one of the most happening places. Day cruises leave from the beach visiting stunning coves and islands along the Turquoise Coast; Butterfly Valley and St Nicholas Island are two of the top cruise destinations.
