Holidays (11)

The whole area is bordered by a nature park, therefore, there are no building sites here so characteristic for other parts of Turkey, and all of the hotels are small, one-floor, beautifully integrated into the surroundings. Very limited traffic (there is no transit route here) makes the area very safe and is recommended also to families. But Oludeniz is not just peacefulness, quiet and beautiful landscapes. It's also a place full of charming shops and an exciting nightlife, because there are a lot of bars, restaurants and nightclubs here – all centered around the beach. Oludeniz is also a world famous paragliding centre. The wonderful natural climate, gorgeous views and tall mountains, have cause that the international festival "Air Games" takes place in Oludeniz annually.

Oludeniz is a beautiful, holiday place for true leisure, where time flows lazily, and the days are spent by rolling over from one side to the other on a sunbed by the pool and many hours of contemplation in peace and quiet. For the persistent, there is a nightlife in Hisaronu or Ovacik and the oppotunity to party in the company of merry tourists, whose native language is English. It is a place detached from the mundane everydayness, which is a haven for those seeking peace and beautiful nature surroundings.
Not far from Oludeniz is Fethiye, a well-known resort with a long history. The traces of its former glory are the majestic Lycian tombs from the 5th century B.C., carved in stone, which look particularly wonderful at sunset. The former fishing town has developed into an animated holiday destination, ideal for a family holiday, also known for the very good conditions for watersports. You can also visit the remains of the Roman amphitheatre and go to one of the picturesque bars around the port, known for their excellent fish and seafood cuisine.
