You’ll love the weather in Olu Deniz – a typical Mediterranean climate means that it’s sun-filled year round. It’s not going to be completely dry through – how else would the surrounding area be so lush and green? Expect a little rain even in summer, and heavier the winter.

Getting Around

By minibus: Getting around Olu Deniz is mainly by local dolmuş minibus – they don’t operate on any fixed timetable, but they’re easy to flag down, simply stand on the roadside and wave your arm to alert the driver. From here, it’s easy to get to nearby towns and resorts such as Fethiye and Hisaronu.

By taxi: Metered yellow cabs can be called from your hotel or taken at ranks. They are either metered or have set prices to popular destinations – check before you travel.


For dare-devils: The highlight of the year is the Olu Deniz Air Games in October, a six-day festival of thrills and spills – join the party! You’ll see a dazzling selection of paragliding, micro-lighting, hang-gliding and base jumping from around 400 gliders from around the world, who soar from Babadağ and fill the skies with colour.
