Fodor's Review

If you want to take a dip in the iconic sandbar that lies across the mouth of the lagoon, then you must first enter Ölüdeniz Natural Park. To do so, go down to the seafront, turn west, then left at the fork where you can see the toll booth; the charge is 10 TL per car or 6 TL per person on foot (kids are half price or free, depending on age). The setting is absolutely beautiful, which means you should expect a lot of crowds. Pretty much the entire pebbly beach is taken up by densely packed lounge chairs and umbrellas, either of which can be rented for 5 TL. Just around the corner a concession rents out pedalos and kayaks for about 30 TL per hour. The sea gets deep quickly here and there are several diving platforms anchored a short swim out. Amenities: food and drink; parking; showers, toilets; water sports. Best for: swimming.
