Ovacik is a peaceful residential area of Fethiye on the stunning south-west turquoise coastline of Turkey, nestled in the hillsides above the famous beach resort of Oludeniz with its calm Blue Lagoon, and the busy harbour town of Fethiye.

Today the peaceful village has seen much development meeting the demands of many overseas buyers. Luxury villas in private plots with large swimming pools, villas on complexes with huge communal pools, and private apartments on modern complexes have all risen from the hillsides making Ovacik a resort in its own right, yet still retaining its stunning beauty and laid back atmosphere, with some of the old farm houses still standing today and still inhabited by the local people.

Ovacik can also offer plenty of relaxing bars which are perfect for a nice quiet drink with friends, unlike the bars in the neighbouring resort of Hisaronu where bars a more focused on loud music and entertainment. Shopping facilities are also excellent with lots of local shops and a host of low cost supermarkets, a far cry from the days when a trip to Fethiye was needed to pick up the weekly grocery supplies.
