The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
The region is steeped in history dating back to B.C. and there are numerous historical sites and tombs to visit around Fethiye, on arranged tours or independently by a hire car. Nearby is the Lycian/Roman town of Candianda, a site where you can wander around tombs, Roman baths, an Amphitheatre and a Roman Stadium. Another Roman town, Tlos, is also nearby, with ruins you may wander around. The area is a walker's or bird-love'rs paradise with the famous Lycian Way accessible from Hisaronu. The breathtakingly beautiful lagoon at Olu Deniz is a major attraction of the area with its national park and peaceful beaches. On the main beach, paragliders land after taking off from Babadag Mountain.
Fethiye is a lovely pretty harbour town at the hillside of Mount Mendos, part of the Taurus mountain range. Fethiye has a beautiful new promenade being built around the harbour and coast, which will eventually link to Calis, another nearby resort. Fethiye is a shopper's paradise, especially in the summer, with carpet shops, gift shops, boutiques selling cheap designer clothes, spice shops and many restaurants offering authentic turkish dishes.
The climate is wonderful with warm weather from late April onwards, sometimes being still warm in December. In the peak months of July and August the skies are blue and clear with temperatures usually in the mid to high 30s. Evenings are very warm in the summer months, but in the early and late season, a wrap or cardigan may be necessary late in the evening. Sea swimming is usually possible for nine months of the year, the water temperature never usually dropping below 16 degrees.
Ovacik is situated at the foot of the Babadag mountain on a plain, in between the beautiful Olu Deniz and the harbour town of Fethiye. Being higher, Ovacik reaps the benefit of being cooler than Fethiye in the summer months, a welcome relief from the heat! The sea is extremely warm late into the season with temperatures sometimes reaching 32 degrees.
Local dolmuses (minibuses), now air-conditioned, are a cheap link to Fethiye and Olu Deniz and run regularly and cheaply up until 0100 in the summer months and stop anywhere on demand. Ovacik is lined with bars and restaurants for a quiet evening out, and about 15 minutes walk into the busier village of Hisaronu where you can eat and drink at the many restaurants and bars or do a spot of evening shopping. Taxis are available 24 hours.
The advantage of Ovacik is that it is a bit quieter and more rural than Hisaronu, and the apartment is situated in amongst Turkish houses with their accompanying goats and chickens, yet only a short walk to the nightlife.
The beautiful and much-photographed beach of Olu Deniz is a fifteen minute dolmus ride away, where you can watch paragliders landing after taking off from Babadag Mountain - or swim in the crystal blue sea which is warm well into November. This where you can also take a day boat trip with lunch for £5 or £6! In October the Air Games are held in Olu Deniz and - an international attraction with paragliders competing against each other, with accompanying beach parties and festivities for a few days. This is a good time to visit as the weather is still warm and air prices a little cheaper.
Hisaronu has many restaurants, bars and shops selling a variety of goods and is most suitable for families and couples looking for a combination of sun, sea, peace and quiet by the pool and also a bit of nightlife!
Local activities which may be of interest within five miles of the apartment are paragliding, microlighting, parascending, pedaloes, banana boats, jetskiing, day boat trips, evening cruises, fishing trips, jeep safaris, camel riding, horseriding, go-karting, waterpark, ten-pin bowling, Turkish baths/saunas, beach massages, markets or even just plain swimming and sunbathing! There is also a new golf course planned at Sarigerme, near Dalaman, about 50 minutes away by car for the golf fanatics.
The gorgeous harbour town of Fethiye is also a short ride in the other direction. It is a hub of activity with shops, markets and a beautiful harbour where you can sit with a meal or drink and watch the world go by!
The area has markets galore at Fethiye (Tuesday, Friday and Saturday), Calis (Sunday) and Hisaronu (Monday) where you can buy your fake designer tee shirts, handbags and jewellery, and haggle to your heart's content!
Nearest large town is Fethiye - four miles away. Nearest beach is Olu Deniz - four miles away. Regular bus services available. Nearest bars, restaurants and nightlife in Ovacik and Hisaronu - 5 minutes walk.
