It was a bit hard to climb up to the waterfall but totally worth it. There are ropes to help you climb up and the view from up there is also fantastic.

We visited the Butterfly valley as part of an organised boat trip. The walk up to the waterfall has very little shade so I would recommend taking plenty of water with you as it does take a good 15-20 minutes to get there. The terrain is also very rocky so make sure you wear something that is sensible and can... More

We took the water dolmas from OD to butterfly valley, waves a bit choppy making getting on and off the boat tricky! When we arrived at butterfly valley we were horrified at all the boat trips and masses of people. So many boats that the water dolmas had force it's way, quite literally, between the other boats. We headed to... More

The island was very nice, as was the sea of course, but unless you are there at a specific time of the year then you will not see the butterflies and it will cost you extra to walk up to the gorge to see them non existent butterflies.

First visited as part of a 6 island boat trip, the view from Rock Bar was incredible, felt like a film set. We returned later and stayed the night in a tent, where breakfast and dinner was included in a very reasonable price. The valley itself was gorgeous with many butterflies and a small waterfall. The valley is also home... More

The waterfall is dry at this time of year so don't bother with the walk in the heat. The beach is very stony so rake waterproof shoes.

Nothing to do with Olu Deniz, without fancy hotels and restaurants and tourism driven water sports. Just a marvelous beach, a camp, a

After reading some previous reviews im thinking that some strays from the seedy drunken streets of Magaluf visited thinking it was maybe a strip joint. Its a valley, and a beautiful one at that. Anyone with the ability to read basic English should have perhaps looked at what Butterfly Valley was all about before making such halfwitted reviews. The campsite... More

I can on a boat tour (definitely recommend that). I assumed it was free but there were 2 men at the 'entrance' of a dirt path charging 5 lira and marking down what boat you came from. Be sure to be quiet and you may see a butterfly or 2. Or a turtle :)
