Ovacik Area Guide


Ovacik, an area of southwestern Turkey, and part of the stunning Fethiye district sits in the mountains and enjoys a lovely welcome breeze throughout summer, prompting slightly cooler temperatures than coastal resorts at sea-level.

Once an unknown, small farming village, the landscape consisted of old stone houses, and dirt track roads with fields of grazing livestock and olive trees. These days, the landscape view has changed dramatically, as the village advanced and modernised to become a favourite place for foreign property buyers.

Property for sale in Ovacik ranges from modern apartments to luxurious villas and its location on a small plateau at the foot of Mount Babadag, means most homes have stunning views of nature.

Things to Do in Ovacik

Life in Ovacik is never dull, especially for families because of several water parks, a mini-golf course, go-cart tracks, and paintball arena. For those who want to avoid the intense excitement, trails through the shaded woodland lead to the nearby Kayakoy ghost village with its ancient Greek houses, church and school.

One of the newest attractions, especially for children is the new Adventure Park found half way between Ovacik and Fethiye. Assault courses, rope swings and tree houses are all shaded from the sun because of the forest location and adults can sit back and enjoy the shade with a refreshing drink, while the kids run wild.

When you buy property in Ovacik, you are never too far from a stunning beach, with the nearest being Oludeniz, one of the most photographed beaches in the world. From here you can hop on a boat for the day, to sail around the local islands, swim in hidden bays and tuck into a fresh barbecue lunch onboard.

Otherwise, for everything and anything in one place, Fethiye town centre steps up to the mark with a plentiful shopping and nightlife scene. From here, locals also have easy access to the rest of Turkey by using the bus station with its extensive range of cheap and frequent routes.

Ovacik also sits off the main D400 highway that runs along the entire Mediterranean coast of Turkey, so it is easy to get about and explore other coastal resort, historical attractions and destinations by hiring a car.

Getting There

As well as the central bus station in Fethiye town centre, one reason why many people buy property in Ovacik is that it is just 50 minutes from the main airport of Dalman that during summer has an extensive flight schedule, especially from the United Kingdom.
