Holidays in Hisaronu

Once a quiet, mountainside village, Hisaronu, Turkey, bears all the hallmarks of a laid-back holiday haven. However, looks can be deceptive, and while the village has retained much of its old-school Turkish charm, it’s a buzzing holiday destination with plenty of things to see and do. If you fancy swimming in clear, blue waters then be sure to pay a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, which has its own sheltered beach and offers excellent conditions for scuba-divers. For those who like the water, but would rather not be under it, the nearby Dalyan River is the perfect spot to go kayaking, rafting and taking some more leisurely boat-trips around the Aegean Coast. If you’d rather dive head-first into the local culture on your holidays to Hisaronu, Turkey, Fethiye’s Old Town is buzzing with shops, cafés and street markets. The destination itself doesn’t let the side down, either: by day, there’s plenty of shopping to be had and sleepy bars serving refreshing drinks. By night, it bursts into life with some of the best nightlife in Turkey.

12-31 °C

If you’re looking for some serious sunbathing, book your holiday between June and August, when the temperatures creep into the low thirties (°C).

Approximately four hours.

Flights to Hisaronu Turkey land at Dalaman Airport, which is roughly an hour’s drive from the village. 

Book your Thomas Cook holiday to Hisaronu to see the pristine sand of Blue Lagoon, Turkey’s most famous beach, and enjoy sailing along the sun-drenched Aegean Coast.

Anyone taking their holidays to Hisaronu, Turkey, with a view to lazing back on the beach will find plenty to choose from. Ölüdeniz and the Blue Lagoon beach are just a short water-taxi ride away, offering ideal sunbathing conditions. However, the boats don’t just act as taxis, and you can also take a cruise along the Dalyan River or along the Aegean Coast. If terra firma is more your thing, the foothills of the Babadag mountains is a challenging day’s hike, with some of the best scenery in Turkey acting as your backdrop. However, if that sounds too much like hard work, Hirasonu offers plenty of cafés and bars in which to enjoy a leisurely drink and watch the world go by. Once the sun’s slipped over the horizon, the resort erupts into a riot of music, dancing and good times, as the nightlife scene takes over.

Beach-lovers will find that holidays to Hisaronu, Turkey, put them within easy access of some of the best beaches on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast. Hop on a dolmus and within ten minutes you’ll find yourself on the golden sands of Ölüdeniz. With a variety of water sports on offer and a range of restaurants and cafés nearby, it’s an easy and chilled-out way to spend a day. However, the ace up Ölüdeniz’ sleeve is the famous Blue Lagoon. Known as the most photographed beach in Turkey, the Blue Lagoon is a protected nature reserve with powdery white sand that melts into dazzlingly blue water. Further out, the sea is warm and wonderfully clear, providing excellent conditions for a spot of snorkelling.

If you’ve got any bargain-hunters in your group, they’ll find plenty of shops lining the main street, selling everything from clothing to handmade jewellery and pottery. For a true Turkish shopping experience, head to Fethiye’s Old Town, where the maze of narrow streets is stuffed full of quirky shops selling Turkish rugs and arts and crafts. There’s also a weekly market, where you can practice your haggling skills!

Many people take their holidays to Hisaronu with a view to getting stuck into its legendary nightlife. Once the sun goes down, the main street bursts into life, with the sounds of house tunes and the glow of neon lights spilling out of bars and clubs.
