The main Oludeniz Beach is easily reached but road 12 km south of Fethiye. There is a frequent Dolmus service. The Bay nestles in a narrow valley backed by forested cliffs with a strand and beach area stretching 4 km west towards the Blue Lagoon. The Valley is a vibrant centre visited by sun-worshippers, para-gliders, divers and water-sport enthusiasts. Action is always close at hand. Once on the beach you can immerse yourselves in the pristine mediterranean waves, admire the sea view while enjoying a cold drink or a meal at one of the choice restaurants. Sunset may dictate a cocktail at one of the terraced restaurants overlooking the length of the beach watching the last para-gliders land, the last boats put down anchor, and maybe a group of frolicking Dolphins. Accommodation in the bay is low-rise and varies from the simple to the sophisticated. Without leaving the beach area one can change money, post letters, visit a doctor,have a beauty treatment, find a supermarket, buy jewellery and book tours.
