The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region

Turkeys south western coast is more frequently referred to as the Turquoise Coast mainly due to its crystal clear waters. It boasts beautiful breathtaking mountain views, stunning backdrops, pine forests, magnificent beaches and ancient ports along its stunning coast line.
The area is steeped in history, with ancient ruins, cities and offers many opportunities for sightseeing.
Set at the foot of the Babadag mountain Hisaronu/Ovacik benefits from being slightly cooler and is a perfect escape from the heat and humidity of the coast, which can be a refreshing advantage after a long day on the beach.
The immediate area offers a diverse landscape, ideal for walkers, sightseers, or simply for sun worshippers. Hisaronu itself is lively resort and just a 10 minute walk from the apartment. In recent years it has become a popular holiday resort for all the family, with hotels, bars, restaurants catering for all tastes. There are numerous shops offering gold jewellery, leather goods, Turkish spices and teas, all at very good prices.
There are also many local tour operators offering a extremely wide range of trips, do use your haggling skills to find the best offer. Why not pamper yourself while on holiday, many local beauty salons offer, massages, manicures etc, for the men, why not visit the local Barber for a Turkish shave and head massage a experience not to be missed. For the ultimate relaxation treatment do try one of the local Turkish baths.
Both Hisaronu and Fethiye have large weekly markets, well worth a visit for Turkish goods and souvenirs once again don't be afraid to haggle after all it is a well known Turkish tradition.
There are numerous activities and attractions in the Hisaronu/Ovacik area the most popular being the 5 and 12 island boat trips that leave daily from Oludeniz beach. Other attractions include: Gullet cruises, Jeep safaris, paragliding, water sports, scuba diving, snorkeling, fishing, white water rafting, water park, horse riding, quad biking and much more.
Ovacik is just a stroll down the hill from the apartment and is not as lively as Hisaronu yet still has much to offer, everything that a relaxing holiday would require, bars, restaurants and shops.
If you enjoy the hustle and bustle of a local market both Hisaronu and nearby Fethiye have a weekly market with many a bargain on offer, don't forget to haggle for those holiday bargains.
Oludeniz is one of the most beautiful and photographed beaches in Turkey. The famous Blue Lagoon has a narrow inlet so is sheltered from the open sea, offering calm turquoise waters for safe bathing, ideal for families with young children. Some small beaches around the Lagoon offer canoe and paddle boat hire. In the evening, bean bags on the beach at Oludeniz offer a relaxed atmosphere to relax and unwind away from the busier bars and restaurants, while watching the magnificent sunset.
Fethiye is a pretty harbour market town tucked into a broad bay at the foot of Mount Cragus and is only a 15 minute Dolmas ride away from the apartment. It has a picturesque waterfront, marina and palm lined promenade for a peaceful stroll. The town has numerous restaurants and bars overlooking the bay and harbour. The old town has bazaars selling Turkish delight, Turkish teas, aromatic herbs and spices, carpets and leather goods. Fethiye also boasts a large weekly market.
Dalyan is one of Turkeys most picturesque historical resorts, boat trips provide transport to the local beaches, the nearby mud baths and upriver to Kaunos, passing rock tombs high on the cliff face. The Dalyan Delta meets the sea at the beautiful long golden sands of Iztuze beach; enjoy a relaxing swim in the fresh water lake. The area is a nature conservation area and a refuge for Loggerhead Turtles and blue crabs.
The Spectacular Saklikent Gorge is the place to chill out in the cool green highlands. The gorge is 300m high and 11 miles long carved out by the churning waters of the Esen River. Access to the gorge is by a suspended wooden footbridge. Enjoy a river walk within the high walls of the gorge itself or just relax at one of the riverside tables at the base of the gorge and enjoy freshly caught grilled trout, or browse around many of the traditional handmade market stalls. For the more adventurous try a down river doughnut ride in the river Esen rapids.
Kayadoy also known as the Ghost village is a deserted Greek settlement set on a hillside overlooking the valley. Great for exploring churches and old ruins

"The perfect holiday apartment"
This was our third visit to Toni & John's beautiful holiday let, and it never fails to delight!
It's a real home from home, especially if you have a young family and are looking for a spacious, beautifully furnished apartment away from the bustle of the main resort but a 2 minute (free!) transfer from the Club Orka Hotel - where you can still enjoy all the facilities.

"Very tasteful and modern apartment"
The apartment is very modern, photos don't do it justice. It is much bigger than it looks. The area of Ovacik is perfect, quiet with a few very good bars and restaurants, The Kings Arms is brilli… More

"probably the best accommodation i have ever stayed in"
The appartment was spacious, clean and very well equiped. there is a free bus down to the orka hotel to use their facilities, which has a gym, spar and very good restaurant, the Turkish night is a must. The staff and locals cant do enough for you
Go and see Ramus at hannibal tours in Hisaronu for all your trips, he is a genuinly nice and none pushy person. The jeep safari is a must, but be prepared to get very wet all day, and the turtles at Dalyan are just amazing
20 Sep 2012
We had a lovely week at Orka park, the complex is situated in the perfect location, surrounded by mountains with impressive views, far enough from the main part of the town to be quiet and peaceful but just a short stroll from everything you may need. The bars and restaurants are varied and numerous, from a romantic meal for two, to dancing on the table in a cocktail bar, its all there. The facilities on the Orka park complex are also very good, the large round swimming pool was clean and well maintained, all the surrounding gardens and paths etc are clean and tidy. The bar and resturant on site is very handy, we found the food to be very good and reasonably priced, the sunbeds are free and plentiful. Apartment Y1 is beautiful,a real home from home, the two bed rooms are very spacious both with equally impressive en suits and walk in showers, it dosent feel like a rental property, all the fixtures and fittings are such nice quallity and the finishing touches really do make a difference, the owners of this appartment have got everything just right, the washing mechine and water cooler proved to be priceless. We will definately be coming back..

"A beautiful apartment in relaxing surroundings"
The apartment is beautifully furnished with all home comforts including,if you want to cook in the apartment, all the utensils you would have at home. The bedrooms are light and airy and the lounge very relaxing. The apartment and grounds are immaculately kept with a lovely pool for those who dont want to venture far. All the apartments look over the pool area which is suitable for all ages with plenty of sunbeds. The complex has lovely views up to the mountains and also over Hisaronu with beautiful sunsets to be seen in the evening. There are plenty of really good restaurants in Hisaronu, catering for all tastes and it only takes about 10 minutes to wander down to the town. There are also bars and discos for those wanting some night life or with young adults (or older ones!) who like to party. Oludeniz is only a short distance, but you probably will need transport to get there, although some of the beaches provide free transport to and from apartments in the area. There are also lots of historical places to visit and also a lovely mountain/coastal walk in the area for those who prefer to wander rather than sit on the beach. All in all we had a lovely relaxing holiday and would recommend the appartment to couples or families as there is something for everyone, will definitely being going back!

The apartment is beautiful and just as described. Well equipped and spotlessly clean. The location in our opinion is one of the best in the area. It was our first time to Turkey and we were amazed at how green and mountainous this area is, with the most spectacular sunsets seen from the terrace. Its a quiet area but within easy reach of everything you need. Theres a small supermarket a few minutes down the hill and a few minutes further takes you to the centre of Hisaronu, althoughthere are some quieter restaurants and bars nearby. The walk back up the hill can be quite a challenge, especially in the heat but the taxi's are really cheap, just a few pounds max from the centre of Hisaronu. Olu Deniz is a short dolmus ride away and cost only 2.75lira (£1.00) from the main hisaronu road. We really have had an amazing time and will definitely look to return. A much recommended apartment in a lovely location.

"Fantastic Apartment with one of the best views ever !"
Have just returned from 2 weeks at Apartment V1 on the Orka Park complex. The apartment was a real home from home and the little extra touches really made it. The pool was great and the kids enjoyed the fact that it was only a few steps from the apartment. All the staff at Orka Park were really helpful and nice. Surrounding area has everything you need within a short walk or taxi/dolmus ride - Bars and restaurants nearby good and local shops had everything you needed for a self catering stay.
One of the best things about this apartment was the fantastic sunset every night viewed from the back balcony "Breathtaking". Bedrooms etc were a great size and the kids also loved the bean bags ! We will hopefully be back one day

I have just returned from our holiday to Orka Park in Hisaronu and have had an amazing time. The apartment was lovely and very big with everything you need. The complex is very new and clean and the staff very friendly and I would definitely go again.
