Trips from Olu Deniz

We are going to Olu Deniz in June & this will be our second trip. Can anybody advise of any trips we should do or places to see. We did a boat trip from Fethiye last time which we enjoyed but it was a long day & will not do it this time. Any info appreciated.

The list is endless..!! Kayakoy - the old ghost village and Butterfly valley are on your doorstep. Saklikent Gorge a must, Tlos, Xanthos, Letoon, Pinara - all ancient famous archaeological sights. A bit further afield - Patara famous beach and ruins behind, Kalkan, Kas and the greek island of Meis - perhaps even the sunken city of Kekova (might be a wee bit too far for that). Dalayan and the dalyan delta....and other places up the coast (not so sure of that way!).

Enjoy - there is lots to do!

Thanks for the info. Can you please tell me how do we get to Kalkan from Olu Deniz & how long will it take? Is there much to see? Also Patara beach - is it easy to get to & worth a visit. Thanks for info - greatly appreciated.

it takes about an hour to get from Oul Deniz to Kalkan by car. Longer - if you go by bus as I guess you will need to go to Fethiye first and then to Kalkan. Patara is on the way (about 15mins before Kalkan) and IMHO - is well worth the visit for the lovely sandy 18km beach which is a protected nesting ground for breeding turtles and also for the amazing and famous archaeological ruins behind.

I hope that answers your query!
