Hisaronu

 

The charming hill town of Hisaronu, a short distance inland from Turkey's Mediterranean coast is ideally situated for those intent on exploring the region, enjoying an active holiday or if you just want to relax this resort is for you. You can choose to be as relaxed or energetic as you wish. Hisaronu is centrally located on the 'Turquoise Coast', within a short 'dolmus' (local taxi) ride from the busy centre of Fethiye, the beautiful seaside resort of Oludeniz with its blue lagoon, crescent beach, and numerous sites of interest. The surrounding area offers a ruggedly beautiful landscape, ideal for walkers, and a coast filled with secluded bays and coves accessed through winding forest paths. Being set at high altitude the town also has the advantage of being cooler and less humid than the coast, a pleasant refuge to retreat to after a day in the summer sun.

The main street of Hisaronu is well supplied with a variety of stores selling everything holidaymakers look for in Turkey.

Hisaronu has an abundance of restaurants to cater for the tastes of international tourists, from traditional Turkish cuisine to English dishes, sizzling pizzas and a variety of Italian, Indian and Chinese restaraunts.

The nightlife of Hisaronu is legendary on the 'Turquoise Coast', its clubs and pubs rocking until the early hours during the summer season. Holidaymakers will find everything from Turkish theme nights to 60's discos or full-on nightclubs.

There is no need to spend all day lying on the beautiful Oludeniz beach, or beside the hotel pool. Hisaronu is packed with opportunities to get out and about. Most popular activities are paragliding from Babadag Mountain to land on the beach; canoeing down the Xanthos river to Patara; visiting the bazaar in nearby Fethiye; taking a glass-bottom boat trip; taking a day trip to the Greek island of Rhodes; and an excursion to the 'ghost town' of Kayakoy.

Ovacik


Next to Hisaronu is the rural mountain village of Ovacik. It is a peaceful and relaxing spot with breathtaking views across the valley. It is a twenty minute stroll or five minute Dolmus ride. Here you can find the waterpark.

Fethiye

 

The small port town of Fethiye occupies the site of the ancient city Telmessos, with an impressive ancient theatre and numerous Lycian rock tombs. Situated at the head of a pretty island-strewn bay, Fethiye is a popular destination on the stretch of the Mediterranean known as the Turquoise Coast. Fethiye is full of exciting narrow alleys selling a variety of Turkish goods. The bazaar is the biggest in the area and is a must for bargain hunters.

Fethiye is home to several remarkable ancient sites. The most conspicuous are the rock tombs dating from the 4th century BC carved in the hillside above the town. Beside the harbour is the Roman amphitheatre and the crumbling remains of a medieval castle built by the Knights of St John. There is a good selection of restaurants and many attractive pavement cafes on the harbour front and in the narrow streets of the old town. Around Fethiye are numerous unspoiled rocky coves and beaches, crystalline seas, offshore islands, cliffs and pine-covered mountains affording as much relaxation or activity as one chooses. Sit and enjoy a cold beer while you watch the Gulets cruising across the shimmering sea, and the small fishing boats bringing back their catch of the day.

Calis

Calis is renowned for its spectacular sunsets and its laid-back atmosphere. Situated in the south west of the country on the beautiful Mediterranean coast, Calis has a selection of hotels, bars and restaurants that line the extensive beachfront road. The beach itself is long and narrow,  with a mix of sand and shingle.The warm clear seas offer good swimming and snorkelling and as in Dalyan, a population of Loggerhead turtles gathers here to lay its eggs at certain times of the year. The Sultans Aquacity waterpark, a stone's throw from the beach, provides a wealth of entertainment for families.

Olu Deniz

The Blue Lagoon at Olu Deniz has been described as one of the most beautiful and most photographed beaches in Turkey. The waters are crystal clear with gentle waves. The Lagoon can be found at the end of the beach inside a Natural Park area, surrounded by fantastic views of the Babadag Mountains with warm waters suitable for all ages.

Olu Deniz has its own beachfront where there are plenty of restaurants and bars lined along the promenade. By day you can make the most of the sun, lazing on the beach, or for the more adventurous you can attempt one of the many watersport activites available. By night the resort comes alive with bars, restaurants where you can eat out under the stars, along the waters edge.
