Hisaronu Travel GuideEdit This The best resource for sights, hotels, restaurants, bars, what to do and see
Nestled within the picturesque Taurus mountains and just minutes away from Olu Deniz beach and famous blue lagoon lies the over rated resort of Hisaronu. Slightly off the beaten track but still the main base for holidaymakers. Hisaronu has been transformed from a tiny village into a complete resort. Happily, due to local restrictions regarding mass development, it still remains unspoilt, retaining its unique village charm by sympathetically designing newer buildings to compliment existing originals. Hisaronu is hugely popular with British visitors, English is, for the most part, very well spoken by locals and the sheer variety of bars, restaurants and nightlife is second to none. There is something for everyone of every age which has helped it develop into a lively and friendly resort with visitors returning year after year. Nearby Olu Deniz is in a league of its own for scenery and its turquoise lagoon and sun bleached sands have adorned the front cover of holiday brochures for years, quite rightly earning it the enviable title of most photographed beach in the whole of Turkey. The beach at Oludeniz offers a huge variety of water sports, there is paragliding from Babadag Mountain onto the beach below, a selection of boat trips departing regularly from Oludeniz or Fethiye for a day exploring the scenic coastline, windsurfing, waterskiing and, in the shallow, clear waters of the lagoon itself, scuba diving.
