Now, I’m not going to provide the spiel that Olu Deniz is the proper introduction to Turkey, as a result of it’s not.

It’s removed from being a typical Turkish city. It’s constructed round tourism and geared as much as serve the wants of demanding vacation makers.

Those that are in search of a vacation stuffed with Turkish tradition and traditions should discover additional afield nonetheless, Olu Deniz can’t merely be written off identical to that.

You must look additional than the eating places promoting English breakfasts and the outlets who’ve stolen the names of properly-identified western manufacturers. Not like different resorts similar to Altinkum, these disappointing points are usually not the primary focus of the resort.

The principle focus of Olu Deniz is its wonderful pure magnificence. The well-known blue lagoon, an extended sandy seaside, magnificent inexperienced mountains backing the resort and simply across the shoreline is Butterfly valley.
