A true natural wonder. A natural beauty of Turkey well known in the world: ÖLÜDENİZ…

For some, it is the reflection of heaven on Earth. It is the point where the alluring tones of blue and green colours meet and get blended. It is worth seeing this holiday destination with amazing green landscape and blue sea. Because of its beauty, the destination is also known as the gate to heaven. Getting into this breathtaking picture will be a very different experience for you.

When it comes to Turkey, Fethiye is the first thing that springs to mind. Along with its natural beauties, rich history and cultural heritages, it is the earthly heaven in Turkey. Ölüdeniz is located in the southwest of Fethiye. You can reach Ölüdeniz by a comfortable journey of 14 kilometres.

Your trip to Ölüdeniz comes to an end in a jungle of pine trees, just after passing through Hisarönü Crossroad. AND the Mediterranean Sea welcomes you with its large valley and magnificent blue colour. It is possible to see Ölüdeniz Town at the valley plain below and Belcekız Beach straight ahead. You will also see Ölüdeniz Lagoon and Kumburnu on the right.

Ölüdeniz is highly developed in terms of tourism. The number of accommodation, catering and recreational services and facilities is surprisingly high. And the high quality services offered in these facilities are an asset. The number of places to visit and the activities to participate is so much that it is hard to make a decision between them all. The only thing you need to do is to choose any of them. Parachutes gliding in the sky seem to be a part of this spectacular view.

Ölüdeniz Lagoon is like a lake where you can find every tone of blue. The sand lying along the lagoon line is so tiny and almost whitish. This combination of white and blue offers an array of bright colours that relax the visitors. Above this sand, various maquis species of Mediterranean vegetation arise. These include laurel, mimosa and acacia trees.

You can make a cone trip to the lagoon and sail around. When you get tired, you can dive into the crystal clear water and relax for a while.

There are alternative activities and recreational events like mountain hiking, cycling, climbing, camping, and safari tours on rough terrain vehicles, excursions on land vehicles, and excursions on horse or camels, daily boat trips. These are only some of the activities you can take up here in Ölüdeniz.

A holiday to remember is waiting for you with diving and any kind of water sports activities.
