Hisaronu Area Guide


Hisaronu is Fethiye’s lively resort, set in the mountains above the busy harbour town and the stunning beach of Oludeniz. Closely neighboured with the residential holiday village of Ovacik, there is little to decipher where one begins and the other ends.

Once a small farming village, development in Hisaronu started as an overflow from Oludeniz whose hotels didn’t have enough beds and no room to expand. These days, the busy mountain resort settled at the foot of the famous Babadag Mountain, is known worldwide for its paragliding exhibits with hundreds of solo and tandem flights from its summit every day.

Things to Do in Hisaronu

The resort has one main street that is closed off to traffic in the evening when it fills with tourists and locals browsing the shops, drinking in the bars, or dining in an array of international restaurants. Many also stay out to dance the night away in buzzing nightclubs till the early hours followed by an early morning kebab or bowl of soup in the 24-hour restaurants.

Local travel agents sell many repeat excursions including daily boat cruises, jeep safaris, Turkish baths, and visits to nearby villages and points of attractions such as Uzumlu or the ancient ruins of Tlos.

By far though, the most famous activity is spending summer days on the nearby Olu Deniz beach and Blue Lagoon, of which its beauty is proved in the fact that it is one of the most photographed places in Turkey. Apartments and villas in Hisaronu for sale are never far from a beach, with Oludeniz easily reached by the local dolmus service.

Locals of Hisaronu also regularly catch the bus in Fethiye town centre to take advantage of the more extensive nightlife scene, range of shops or just to wander around the nostalgic old part of town called Paspatur. It is also from here that many gulet cruises set sail for a three-night, four-day trip to the region of Antalya further down the coastline.

How to Get to Hisaronu

One factor that enticed Hisaronu property owners to buy in the area is the excellent transport network. A local bus connects them to Fethiye town centre, and from there, they travel to anywhere in Turkey on frequent bus routes that are also excellent value for money.

Hisaronu also sits on the 1278-mile modernised D400 highway running all along the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, so drivers find it easy to travel to and from all nearby areas. Lastly, Dalaman airport, the number one touristic airport in the country is just 45 minutes’ drive away.

It has an extensive flight schedule in summer, receiving planes from all around the world, and although this lessens during winter, Hisaronu property owners also use Antalya airport, three hours away.
