Turkish Dead Sea; Oludeniz
Oludeniz is a popular beach only thirty minutes away from Fethiye. Ölüdeniz is one of the only lagoons of Turkey.

What is special about Oludeniz Lagoon?
Like many other lagoons, Oludeniz is also formed on a shallow coastline with a constant freshwater source in the background. Today, while the Aegean waters can be rough in winter due to the winds, Oludeniz Lagoon will be peaceful like a sofa bed. The lagoon is supplied by many underground water sources which creates a constant flow of freshwater to the Aegean Sea and salty water into the lagoon.
