About Oludeniz

Oludeniz is a quiet and quaint village, tumbling down a valley overlooking a sheltered and protected bright blue lagoon, it sits beside a national park and a long crescent-shaped beach - believed to be one of the most photographed beaches in the Mediterranean. The ideal destination for a family seaside holiday or a sightseeing trip, it stands in the shadow of towering mountains covered with pine trees and is one of Turkey's top destinations for paragliding. Whether you're soaking in the rays, exploring abandoned villages and ancient cities, or taking a boat trip to Butterfly Valley, you will be mesmerised by this bewitching place. The best places to stay in Oludeniz are small, intimate and romantic - the perfect places to unwind.

What not to miss

  • Sunbathe along the golden sloping sands of the lagoon or head out to Belcekiz Beach.
  • Visit Kaya Koy, a village abandoned by Greeks thrown out of Turkey in 1924 and left to decay because it was believed to be cursed.
  • Book a boat trip out to Butterfly Valley, a beautiful paradise that's home to the unique Jersey tiger butterfly, a secluded beach and waterfalls.
  • Head out to Fethiye for some retail therapy and a Turkish bath.
  • Be sure to visit the ancient city of Xanthos, UNESCO-listed, whose whole population commited mass suicide in 540 BCE rather than accept defeat at the hands of the Persians.
