Oludeniz
Oludeniz Turkey's favourite holiday paradise
Oludeniz is a neighbourhood of Fethiye district of Muğla province. In 2006, Ölüdeniz, which was selected as the most beautiful beach in the world with eighty-two per cent of the votes, has developed considerably in terms of tourism. Known as the "land of light and sun" during the Lycian period and the "Far Land" in the Middle Ages, Ölüdeniz is located on the Teke Peninsula in the southwest of Anatolia and is one of Turkey's most famous abalone (lagoon) formations.

Natural Beauties and Features
Ölüdeniz is a calm lake that deserves its name. Even on the most stormy days, while the shores of Belceğiz are battling with waves, only slight fluttering occurs in Ölüdeniz. There are three important reasons behind this stagnation:

Intense Spring Water Outlets: The intense spring water outflows in Ölüdeniz create a current at the bottom from the inside to the open sea. This current ensures continuous renewal of the water.
Circulation Due to Salt Difference: The salt difference created by the spring waters creates a continuous circulation in and out of the open sea. This circulation protects the water quality of Ölüdeniz.
Tidal Effect: The sea level rises and falls by about half a metre every two to three days due to the tidal effect. This helps Ölüdeniz to constantly renew itself by providing a large amount of sea water inflow and outflow.
Tourism and Activities
Oludeniz is famous for its natural beauties as well as the various touristic activities it offers. The town is a paradise for holidaymakers with its deep blue sea, white sandy beach and magnificent nature. Some of the activities that can be done in Oludeniz are as follows:

Paragliding: Oludeniz is one of the best places in the world for paragliding. The jumps from Babadağ offer an unforgettable experience accompanied by a magnificent view.
Diving and Snorkelling: Diving and snorkelling in the clear waters of Ölüdeniz is ideal for exploring the underwater world.
Boat Tours: You can explore the surrounding bays and islands with boat tours departing from Ölüdeniz. Popular stops such as the Blue Cave, Butterfly Valley and St. Nicholas Island are indispensable for these tours.
