Hisaronu and Övacik

Similar to Fethiye the region is made up of a number of smaller areas or communities. These are usually a village or small town plus a stretch of the coast. Two of the most popular, which merge into one larger resort, we will cover here and give you an overview. This is our Turkish Resort Guide to Hisaronu and Övacik.

Hisaronu is a tourist resort which has developed vastly since the 1980s. Originally a small village it’s now one of the largest resorts when considered alongside its’ close neighbour Ovacık. Today Hisaronu is a lively resort with restaurants, bars, nightclubs and shops.

Let’s start with Hisaronu

Funnily enough, Hisaronu was never meant to be a resort. In nearby Ölüdeniz building development is restricted, and so an ‘overflow’ was needed for holidaymakers coming for the gorgeous beaches. When Ölüdeniz  couldn’t cope with the volume of tourists, Hisaronu became the logical choice for development. To quote Jeff Goldblum in Jurassic Park, “Life will find a way” . Over 20-30 years Hisaronu developed its own identity and became a significant holiday resort itself. It is particularly popular with British holidaymakers and second homeowners, being close to Ölüdeniz as well as the Blue Lagoon.


Övacık is a small village which adjoins the resort of Hisaronu. The village comprises mostly of private villas and apartments as well as some small hotels. It enjoys a more sedate pace than its’ neighbour, and is perfect those looking for a quieter destination. The village is on the foothills of the Babadağ mountain. Its’ elevated position means peace, relaxation and a gentle breeze blowing in from the coast. If you are looking to buy a property in Turkey with a view, this is a great option. Views across the valley can be breath-taking, particularly when the sun sets.

It is easy to forget you are only 10 minutes away from the hustle and bustle of Ölüdeniz and Hisaronu.

Like many destinations in Turkey it is quieter in the off-peak months (October to Easter). In the summer the village comes alive with a fantastic market on Monday and shops, bars and restaurants.
