The beach at Ölüdeniz set inside a naturally sheltered and almost tropical bay and amidst a haze from the Aquamarine and Turquoise waters of the lagoon, is arguably one of the single most beautiful places in the world. In fact, the officially recognised Blue Flag beach and surrounding destination is frequently ranked in the top 5 tourism destinations in the world in traveller’s journals and publications.
For the more adventurous among us; Ölüdeniz is also world renowned as a paragliding destination, owing to the height of the Babadağ mountains that form the natural shelter behind the beach, and also the panoramic views.
With such beauty, the fact that you hardly ever hear about Ölüdeniz in the world of overseas property buying activity in Turkey is definitely a good thing; an undiscovered paradise and only a budget airline trip away.
Of course it is also because the area is massively protected, and the few properties that have and are allowed to be built there very rarely come onto the market. Luckily there are several resort towns nearby in which property can be bought fairly easily and relatively cheaply. View property near Olu Deniz, in Fethiye, Calis, Hisaronu and Ovacik
