Once a hideaway for pirates and smugglers, now one of the most photographed beaches in the world, Olu Deniz`s crescent shaped bay leads to a gorgeous, secluded lagoon explaining how this area is known as the `Turquoise Coast`. Overlooking the Aegean Sea, Olu Deniz is a small, compact village resort situated on the Southwest coast of Turkey. Sheltered by Babadag Mountain, the resort is in a secluded bay with a blue lagoon which itself is a nature reserve.
One of the other most impressive parts of Olu Deniz is the backdrop. With hills and mountains not far from the beach, exploring is high on many a visitor's agenda. How you go about it though is up to you. Prefer walking? Take to the hiking trails. More interested in doing it at speed? Hire a bicycle and head into the hills near Karaagac village. If you're more of a naturist though and prefer to take things at a relaxed pace, but with some added comfort, sit astride one of the local horses and enjoy a trek through the hills as people have done for hundreds of years.
