Orka Park Apartment (V6)

Location

Our luxury 2 bedroom apartment at Orka Park is only 45 minutes from Dalaman Airport.
It is situated in a unique location high in the Ovacik valley at the foot of the majestic Babadag mountains and offers amazing views of both the mountainous panorama and the Aegean Sea. 

There are lots of interesting places to visit, including the famous Olu Deniz beach and many activities on offer from daily boat trips to jeep safaris or horse riding to paragliding.

The charming hill town of Hisaronu, a short distance inland from Turkey's Mediterranean coast, has boomed into a popular holiday resort with hotels, bars, restaurants, shops, ideally situated for those intent on exploring the region, enjoying an active holiday, or just relaxing in the sun.

The area offers a ruggedly beautiful landscape, ideal for walkers and a coast filled with secluded bays which are accessed through winding forest paths. Being set at high altitude Ovacik & Hisaronu also has the advantage of being cooler and less humid than the coast, which is a pleasant refuge to retreat to after a day in the summer sun. 


The main street of Hisaronu is well supplied with a variety of shops selling everything holidaymakers look for in Turkey, from fake designer wear to carpets, leather goods and gold. Haggling is expected and part of the shopping experience. The centre of Hisaronu is within walking distance of the apartment.


Olu Deniz

Olu Deniz offers one of the most beautiful beaches in Turkey, with a magnificent crescent of pale sand which is set in an area of outstanding natural beauty. The crystal clear water is ideal for swimming and other water sports.

Olu deniz bay and lagoon bask beneath the Babadag mountain and from its summit you can try your hand at paragliding. The small town is only 4km away from the apartment and is accessible by a 10 minute dolmus (local bus / taxi) ride.

Fethiye

The town of Fethiye which overlooks an attractive island-scattered bay is a pretty harbour town set at the foot of the pine-clad Mount Mendos. It is no more than a 15 minute dolmus ride away from the apartment.

The town is a maze of streets lined with restaurants, bars and shops. The town also hosts a large traditional market / bazaar and has harbour promenades to enjoy a peaceful stroll.


Dalyan

The picturesque village of Dalyan is one of Turkeys most historic resorts, magnificent tombs were carved into the rock high on the cliff face.

There are a few cafes and bars around the area perfect for relaxing evenings enjoying food and taking in the wonderful views. The Dalyan Delta, with the long, golden, sandy

Iztuzu beach at its mouth, is a nature conservation area and a refuge for sea turtles and blue crabs. Excursions to Dalyan are available throughout the resort.
