The tourist resort of Ölüdeniz lies only 14 km from Fethiye, just beyond Hisarönü and Ovacık. Its stunning lagoon, which must have been photographed a million times, is a signature image of coastal Turkey. The still waters of the lagoon give it’s name ‘Ölüdeniz – Dead Sea’ and along with the sandy beach clubs it provides a very safe place for children to enjoy.
For the more adventurous, a must-have experience is to enjoy the adrenaline rush of leaping from the top of the region’s highest mountain, Babadağ, to para-glide over the lagoon before eventually landing on the adjoining Belcekiz Beach. Then why not relax with a cocktail in one of the many beach-front bars whilst watching the sun set over the turquoise waters.
