Planning your wedding event can be stressful … so we recommend you take some time out to explore the beauty of the Mediterranean Coastline and experience some warm Turkish hospitality.

Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is our specialist region, with spectacular pristine beaches, green pine-clad mountains and a fantastic sunny climate, this destination is hard to beat for its natural beauty and value-for-money.

Swim in tranquil waters at the world-famous Belcekiz Beach and Blue Lagoon. One of the most beautiful beaches of the Mediterranean, Ölüdeniz offers blue crystal clear waters and is sheltered by soaring coastal mountains. During the day you can just relax on the sand or choose from a variety of water sports. A wide range of bars and restaurants also provide plenty of entertainment and nightlife.

 

Saklıkent Gorge is a large naturally formed canyon, 300 meters deep and 18 km long, and one of the deepest in the world.  It was formed from the abrasion of the rocks by flowing waters over thousands of years. As the level of water rises during winter months, visitors can enter the canyon only in the summer. Four kilometers of the canyon are walkable after April, when most of the snow in the Taurus Mountains has melted and passed through on its way to the Mediterranean Sea.  This a great place to cool off in summer and makes an interesting day out. Bus tours run every day and the trip includes lunch. Saklıkent means "hidden city" in Turkish.

 

Situated in the hills behind Ölüdeniz, and surrounded by pine forests and beautiful countryside, lie the resort towns of Ovacik & Hisarönü. Hisarönü is the busier of the two villages and the restaurants, shops and bars are centred around one main street, where you will also find a weekly craft market offering many brightly coloured crafts and souvenirs. Ovacik is altogether quieter and more rural with splendid mountain & pine forest views, where you can enjoy welcome cool breezes during summer. Both are located 5 mins from Ölüdeniz Beach.

 

Kayakoy is a traditional ancient hillside village 5km inland from Oludeniz.  Until 1923 it was home to many Greek Christians. Following the Greco-Turkish War, Kayaköy was largely abandoned after a population exchange agreement was signed by the both governments. Many of the buildings were damaged in the 1957 Fethiye earthquake, but the town is now preserved as a museum village, and historical monument. Around 500 houses remain as ruins and are under the protection of the Turkish government, including two Greek Orthodox Churches, which remain the most important sights of the ghost town. There are many lovely walks around this mountain village and home-made Turkish pancakes are a specialty.

 

A real favourite for those wanting a trip with variety. Experience beautiful scenery & wildlife cruising the Dalyan River (filming of African Queen fame), pass by spectacular Caunos Rock Tombs, then enjoy an invigorating mud bath and thermal spa. Lunch in a shady riverside restaurant is followed by a visit to famous Iztuzu Beach, breeding ground of Caretta Caretta turtles.

 

Situated in a sheltered bay with a backdrop of mountains and pine forests, Fethiye is a lively port and market town where Turkish life and tourism exist side by side.

From a cafe on the waterfront you can watch the traditional Turkish gulets, fishing boats and local townsfolk. Visit the weekly markets or enjoy a gentle stroll along the marina and enjoy its rustic charm.Explore ancient rock tombs, shop in the cobbled laneways of Paspatur (Old Town), indulge in vibrant restaurants and nightlife. Renowned for its traditional music and dancing, many local venues organise specialty evenings that feature this ancient Turkish culture.

Fethiye is located 15mins from Ölüdeniz and buses run every 5-10 mins in summer

 

An action packed day of adventure for people of all ages. Professional guides and drivers lead a jeep convoy expedition off the beaten track to discover the real Turkey! Includes Patara Beach, Saklikent Gorge and the mud baths.

 

The Fethiye region is also famous for being the starting point of the Lycian Way, a 500km track through the rugged mountains of the Tekke Peninsula to Antalya, and offers some of the most spectacular coastline views in Turkey. Enjoy a late afternoon stroll through Kaya Ghost Village, trek through historic ruins, village markets and scented pine forests, or be guided along shady mountain tracks to the stunning Blue Lagoon at Ölüdeniz.

 

This dream location is a world famous centre for the sensational sport of paragliding, and is host to the International Aviation Games Festival hosted each October. From the take-off point at the summit of Mt Babadağ (6550 ft), good weather conditions, gentle sea breezes and superb thermals will give you the tandem flying experience of a lifetime. Fantastic views over Ölüdeniz Beach!
