A quiet location
Resort-wise, Ovacik is a bit of a shrinking violet. It’s a small speck on the western side of Turkey’s Turquoise Coast with a few bars and restaurants on its main street. The quiet village likes things laid-back, but in striking distance you’ve got party animal Hisaronu – plus one of the most photographed beaches on the Med.
A beach with a blue lagoon
Ovacik doesn’t have its own beach but the one at Olu Deniz, about 15 minutes’ bus ride away, more than makes up for it. What you get here is a Blue Flag stretch of shingle backed by bars and restaurants. And joined at the hip is the famous Blue Lagoon – a secluded spot with sand that curves round crystal-clear water.
Ovacik has a top location. It’s high up on a hill surrounded by pine forest. You can take walks into the countryside, and the cooling breeze up here means you won’t get too hot. For more of a trek, there’s the 1,960-metre-high Mount Babadag to scale – it’s the jumping-off point for paragliders if you want to give it a try.
Twenty minutes by ferry from the harbour at Olu Deniz gets you to Cleopatra’s Bath, an ancient bath-house on the shore where the Egyptian diva used to take a dip. Or half-an-hour’s drive and you’re in Dalyan. Here you can scrub up in the famous mud baths then relax over a meze platter at one of the town’s traditional Turkish restaurants.
