The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
This reqion is on the south west coast of Turkey, called the Turquoise Coast. You will find it a very interesting and friendly area to visit. The scenery guarantees quality 'holiday snaps'; forest clad mountains, wonderful beaches and coves.
July and August are the hottest months with temperatures of 36/37 or higher, May, June and September are a little cooler with temperatures around 29 to 33C.
Ovacik is close to Fethiye, but being higher up benefits from cool breezes in the hot summer months. Ovacik, Hisaronu and Fethiye, are all interesting to visit. Close by is Oludeniz (Blue Lagoon), a really famous 3 km long beach.
For history lovers the area has many interesting sites to visit, including the famous ancient city of Ephesus, and Tlos one of the oldest and most beautiful Lycian cities.
Local markets will be of interest. Fethiye is a busy market town with harbour and marina, and a market every Tuesday. In August there is a festival in Hisaronu, music and street shows etc.
Walkers and cyclists will enjoy exploring the area at a slower pace, and of course travelling by local bus (dolmus) or hired car is easy.
On a "water theme", you can cruise around nearby islands, visit Rhodes (only 90 minutes away), take a river boat trip to see ancient Lycian rock tombs, a breeding area for Loggerhead Turtles, and thermal spring mud baths. Visit the island of Sovalye, where there are no cars, for a really tranquil day walking through pine forests and exploring the coastline.
For the energetic there is much to do: canoeing, rafting, scuba diving and snorkelling, jeep safari, horse riding and paragliding. The beautiful Oludeniz beach is only 4 km from the villa, and in the summer local buses (dolmus) run from Ovacik to the beach every 10 minutes.
For the younger family there is also the fun of the Aquapark at the Hotel Grand Ucel in Ovacik which is open to non-residents, and costs 25YTL per adult, 15YTL per child and 0-6 years free.
