The Location - Ovacik and Hisaronu


Ovacik and Hisaronu

Ovacik and Hisaronu are two villages which, over time, have become joined together and is spread out in a beautiful valley just below the Babadag Mountain between Oludeniz and Fethiye, a short distance inland from Turkey’s Mediterranean coast.



Hisaronu has fantastic views over the famous Oludeniz lagoon.  It grew in popularity because Oludeniz, on the coast, lies in a conservation area and the building of hotel accommodation was limited.  A short minibus ride will take you to the beach.

Hisaronu benefits from slightly cooler temperatures which are welcome in the height of the summer heat.

There are many beautiful beaches and secluded coves in this area of Turkey where sun bathing and water sports can be enjoyed.

Evenings can be as peaceful or as lively as you wish depending on your choice of venue.  There are a large number of shops and fine restaurants.

Hisaronu is popular with a wide range of age groups.  It appeals to those who want to relax in the sun as well as to water sports enthusiasts.

Young singles are attracted to the vibrant nightlife while couples of all ages enjoy the many restaurants.

The holiday season lasts from early spring until late autumn when the temperature range is from the twenties to the high thirties.

Although the summer period is the most popular, spring and autumn are good times to visit historical sites when the days are cooler.

Hisaronu is a lively town with friendly locals dedicated to ensuring tourist satisfaction.  Sitting in the hills above the lagoon it is close to both Fethiye and Oludeniz with their glorious beaches.  The beaches offer many opportunities for water sports as well as boating trips to explore the coastline and visit neighbouring islands and villages.

The rugged landscape around Hisaronu is ideal for those who enjoy hiking. The hills are wooded offering shade and the temperatures are cooler than at sea level. Alternatively the hills can be explored on horseback or on mountain bikes.

This vibrant town is full of gift shops, bars, cafes and restaurants which cater for every taste.  At night it is particularly lively when holidaymakers from nearby resorts come to join in the fun.

There are many other leisure pursuits including paragliding from Babadag Mountain with the intention of landing on the beach, canoeing and white water rafting and paint-balling in the woods.

A Hisaronu holiday offers far more than just lazing on a hot beach. There are sufficient different activities to more than fill your days.

The main street of Hisaronu has a number of shops selling the usual goods to attract holidaymakers.

You will find good quality leather, carpets, jewellery along with a wide range of counterfeit designer-wear.

Remember to develop the art of bartering as the vender does not expect the asking price which is usually inflated by fifty percent.
