Ölüdeniz

Ölüdeniz

Oludeniz Beach is the most beautiful and popular tourist beaches in Turkey and is now a National Park. That is why there are no hotels on the beach and new construction works are banned to preserve the uniqueness of the local nature. There is a small but deep valley located in nearby. Almost one third of the surface of the valley thru this bay is blocked by sand, forming a nearly closed reservoir. That is why this interior sea is called as dead by the locals, later the name of the sea is spread to the entire region. The entry of charter yachts, sail boats, even any sea vehicles by engine like tender boats, jet skis are forbidden, so the water is particularly transparent and crystal clarity. Large cliffs surround the bay and create a unique whimsical landscape which gives opportunity for hiking to Turkey yacht charter passengers.

The valley is situated at the foothill of Babadağ, a 1,975-metre-high (6,480 ft) mountain nominated for preservation as world heritage. A wide-strip sand beach at a bay on the Turkish Riviera protrudes from the valley. In the form of a narrow canyon stretching over around 3–4 km (1.9–2.5 mi), the valley’s steep walls are 350–400 m (1,150–1,310 ft) high. A trail in the valley leads to two small waterfalls dropping from 60 m (200 ft) all the year around. In the middle of the valley, a creek runs, carrying water from a spring in nearby Faralya village to the sea. A road from Ölüdeniz to Uzunyurt, which is part of the Lycian Way Ultramarathon route, runs atop the rocks around the valley
