Ölüdeniz, Turkey, is a town with two sections. One section is located nearer to the coast where the famous Oludeniz Beach is located. The golden yellow sands and clear blue waters attract thousands of tourists every year to visit for activities such as paragliding, sailing, and surfing.
The other section is located nearer to the city center, and is a popular pit stop for travelers embarking on the Lycian Way hike. Travelers can take minibuses to and from the beach for a small price. The town is also less than an hour's drive away from the nearby city, Fethiye, and guests can reach here by public transport.
The section nearer to the Oludeniz Beach has little to no Ölüdeniz, Turkey hostels, as it has been heavily commercialised by large beach resorts and tourism companies. Hence, the only accommodation available here are resorts or hotels. This section is extremely crowded in the summer, but completely dead in the winter with less than a handful of shops opened. Hence, travelers looking for a Ölüdeniz, Turkey hostel may choose to stay in the other section, and take the minibus here for a short day trip.
The section nearer to the city center has a plethora of Ölüdeniz, Turkey hostels. The town continues to be bustling even into off-peak winter season, so guests do not have to worry about not being able to find a hostel in Ölüdeniz, Turkey. The trail head to the famous Lycian Way hike is also located in this section of Oludeniz, with many Ölüdeniz, Turkey hostels located within ten minutes' walk from here.
As this section of the town is rather large, guests staying in this section should take note of the location of their Ölüdeniz, Turkey hostel and ensure that they are not located too far away from the trail head or the bus station, as some hostels in Ölüdeniz, Turkey, are inconveniently located on the outskirts of the city.
