Oludeniz is 15 kilometres from Fethiye, on the west coast of Turkey. The town is packed with beach resorts, bars and restaurants. The blue lagoon at Oludeniz is one of the most photographed beaches in the Mediterranean and rated as one of the top 5 in the world. It has sandy beaches, with a sheltered lagoon, hidden from the open sea. It is also a nature reserve and building is prohibited here. The water is infamous at Oludeniz, with shades of turquoise and aquamarine. Its location next to Mountain Baba Dag makes it a popular place for paragliding, which will give you panoramic views of the bay.
Hisaronu is the main location of all the resorts and just a quick bus ride to Oludeniz. The town is an ideal place for walkers, with a coast full of secluded bays and coves, accessible through footpaths. Since the city of Hisaronu is located at a higher altitude, it is somewhat cooler and less humid than Fethiye. Besides heading to the beach at Oludeniz, the town is full of shops selling everything from clothing to carpets. There is a strip of legendary night clubs in Hisaronu, 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 destinations
