8.5 km south of Fethiye, nestled amidst the mountains, is Turkey`s most popular beach, Oludeniz. This beautiful beach has the look and feel of any Hawaiian or Florida beach with the plethora of beach activities available and the perennial horde of sun and surf addicts thronging the waterfront.
The Oludeniz beach packs in one of the most amazing and breathtaking landscapes in Turkey. The beach is backed by a tract of plain land and beyond it rise the mountains. These mountains constitute the launch pad for the Paragliders and the tandem gliders. On the western end of the beach is a quiet lagoon. The soaring mountains, which form the backdrop to the Oludeniz beach, shelter this lagoon from the fierce lashings of tropical storms.
Accommodation options abound in this area. There are a huge number of hotels, inns and eating joints in the plains behind the beach as well as in the hill towns of Ovacik and Hisaronu.
