Ölüdeniz or Olu deniz is the Turkish for “Dead Sea” and this refers to the still waters of the lagoon that lies behind the beach. A more fitting and commonly used translation is the Blue Lagoon.

The lagoon has crystal clear waters and provides an ideal safe place for children to play. It is separated from the sea by a curving spit of sand which is backed by pine trees. The surrounding pine covered mountains add to the drama of the location making this one of the most spectacular beaches anywhere in Europe. 

Whilst access to part of the beach is free, much of it is located within a National Park which you must pay to enter.
