Of all the bays around Fethiye, Oludeniz is the one that draws the most attention with its impressive sandbank and rings of shallow turquoise waters adorning the covers of most Turkey travel magazines. Oludeniz is a ‘must-see’. However, the bay is protected and the inner lagoon is for swimmers only — no yacht’s or motor boats allowed. Oludeniz resort, found to one side of the bay, boasts a lengthy and impressive sweep of restaurant and bar backed beach. This is where the paragliders land having taken a lofty and exhilarating flight from Babadag Moutain towering over the bay above. The resort is popular with tourists and a good place to visit with some excellent shopping, hotels and international restaurants on offer. For yachts, there are a few anchorages tucked along the headland as you enter the bay from Fethiye on the left, but none offer direct shore access.
