The visit was included in a boat trip, but was limited to a 1 hour stop so the people who didn't want to look did not get bored on the beach waiting. There is a waterfall at the far end (even though the valley was dry) which we headed for, but after walking for 30 minutes and rounding several blind... More

I got there by boat and we had a short stay of 45 min. You need to take your money because there is an entrance fee of 5 Lira when you want to enter the butterfly valley. We just took another inofficial entrance and skipped the fee (there is also a camping place so we just got in there). We... More

We climbed down from the top, from our motel (Montenegro Motel) through a guided path to the bottom of valley. It was an amazing experience every step of the way. The scenery was amazing though the climb down isn't easy and in some parts extra care is needed. By the end of our trek down, the tour boats had gone... More

Accessed by picking a boat up on Oludeniz beach you arrive at Butterfly Valley. Incredible mountains enclose this valley. Walk up the valley amongst a variety of butterflies to a refreshing waterfall. Very welcome in the midday sun. Great for photographs. Return to the beach to chill out, eat , drink and swim. A nice way to spend a couple... More

This Island is often proposed in a packaged tour with hords of tourists as we did but you don't have enough Time to enjoy the beauty of the place. You'd better take a Water taxi of you can. Not easy to visit with young children specially if you Want to see the waterfall on the Island where you have to... More

Went on boat trip, paid extra to go into the valley and to see the waterfall. Really wished we hadnt bothered but just swam in the sea instead. After a reasonable hike uphill in the heatwave (which is what we expected anyway), very disappointed to not even see one butterfly and the so called waterfall was completely underwhelming. We maybe... More

my 2 teenage daughters and I spent a day here in August 2016 - easy to get there and back from Olu Deniz using the shuttle boat and when the large boat trips have left (they only stay for a short period in the morning) it is quiet and peaceful. We walked through Butterfly Valley (there are no butterflies, don't... More

I really love the Butterfly Valley. I first visited the site as a part of a boat trip, then went back. The scenery is fascinating, something that makes you want to explore and not miss anything. You should definitely visit!

Cok issiz bir yer, denizin rengi cok guzel fakat oyle temiz degil, ustelik deniz cok soguk. It is really cold sea, the sea is not clear as you see. There are more beautiful place than butterfly valley. If you want silence and peace you can go for camping.
