A tranquil Turkish resort

While Turkey might be famed for its sticky sweets, the small resort of Ovacik is a true Turkish delight. On a flat plateau surrounded the pine-clad foothills of 1,969-metre-high Babadag (Father Mountain), Ovacik’s setting is extraordinarily beautiful. Life here trots along at a leisurely pace, and the peaceful residential atmosphere means Ovacik holidays are a smart pick for families and groups who want to while away days sipping on cold beer or ‘cay’ teas in cute cafés, or wandering the quaint town.

If you need more buzz, you’re close to Hisaronu’s nightlife and Olu Deniz’s sand-fringed lagoon. For off-the-beaten-path adventurers, a half-hour forest walk leads downhill to the atmospheric ghost town of Kayakoy – its crumbling stone cottages were abandoned in the 1920s. And, if you’re craving a day in the city, vibrant Fethiye is only 10 kilometres away. With a beautiful natural setting and masses of fascinating places to explore nearby, holidays to Ovacik are a case of having your Turkish delight and eating it.
