Scientists aren’t sure how old its history is, but the majority agree in the 3rd century B.C. This ancient Greek campus is formerly known as Telmessos and it is actually a natural formation called Lagoon. If i explain simply, if a coastal arrow is formed on the low shores and turns into a lake on one side of the water, this lake is called Lagoon. Coastal arrow to makes help to turn the formation of a sea to a lake. The stagnant/back/ditch part of the sea is not closed like a lake, the coastal arrow is so long that it can also be said to be almost closed and turns a lagoon.
Mountain side of the coastal arrow is so stagnant and warmer then the other side. You can just feel small bottom current and there is onyl waves comes with the wind. The other side of the coastal arrow is also stagnant but as much as the other side, you will see only small waves.
How can i go to Ölüdeniz?
It is about 500km far from Istanbul and takes almost 9-10hours by car. If you are planning a long-weekend, forget about it cause of the distance. If you go by plane, you should use Dalaman Airport.
What can i do in Ölüdeniz?
Besides swimming, sunbathing, to canoe or paddleboard, there are many monumental tombs, famous beaches like the Butterflies Valley and the Kabak Bay. Unfortunately, the nightlife is very boring. All places are blue-red-green … brightly lit, more like a concept just for British Bachelors. Keywords for Turks “Kemer Foam Party” will be enough to tell.
Food & Drink & Shopping in Ölüdeniz
Do not get your expectations about food & drink too high, you should keep them even less. There are standart touristic fast foods mostly but you can also find nice fajita around Ölüdeniz city center. In addition, there is a supermarket opened 7/24.
You can go for the concept of natural beauty, relax&chill and hang out with love… but if you wanna a high-class nightlife, i don’t recommend.
