Ölüdeniz is a town near Fethiye in Turkey, famous for its 'Blue Lagoon'.

Get in

Ölüdeniz is connected to Fethiye with a wide road that is well-paved and is in a very good condition.

There is also a very frequent minibus (dolmuş) service between Fethiye and Ölüdeniz.

Get around

See

  • Blue Lagoon (Ölüdeniz). Access to the beach is shut by the evening, around 6PM. Known in Turkish literally as "dead sea" because of the stillness of the water, the lagoon is a nature preserve.

Do

  • Paragliding. A number of companies in Ölüdeniz offer paragliding opportunities from the summit of nearby Mt. Babadağ, about 1,900 mt from the sea elevation. A "trip" from the top to the beach takes around an hour and offers stunning views of the Blue Lagoon and the valleys and mountains covered with pine forests around. Training is also possible for those unexperienced at paragliding.
