Olu Deniz Holidays

Turkey’s best beach resort

Olu Deniz, on Turkey’s south-west Turquoise Coast, is home to one of the most famous beaches in the world. The Blue Lagoon regularly tops the list of the world’s favourite beaches – and when you see it for yourself you’ll understand why. White sands melt into the sea, with the peaks of the Taurus Mountains falling steeply down to meet them. This protected national park is popular with adventurous holidaymakers, offering up a wealth of adrenaline-fuelled activities. Diving, paragliding, 4x4 driving – you can take your pick. Holidays to Olu Deniz promise nightlife that’s lively but laid-back all at once. After long days in the Turkish sunshine, you can walk straight off the sands and into the resort’s beach bars and club. Sunset cocktails, rooftop restaurants and all-night dancing are all on the menu and you’ll find a chilled out but fun-loving crowd.
