Oludeniz — 1 night

Famous for its big lagoon, Oludeniz acts like a magnet for mass tourism, featuring some of the most photographed beaches on the Mediterranean.
Start off your visit on the 26th (Fri): stop by Bazaar Anatolia. Get ready for a full day of sightseeing on the 27th (Sat): glide through the air with a parasailing or paragliding tour, then enjoy the sand and surf at Oludeniz PlajI, and then slough off your stress at Lycian D Spa & Turkish Bath.

Plan my Oludeniz trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Oludeniz is an approximately 9.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Dubai to Oludeniz. When traveling from Dubai in August, plan for little chillier days in Oludeniz, with highs around 38°C, while nights are much colder with lows around 24°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Pamukkale.

Rich in culture and customs and brimming with hospitality, natural beauty, and historical heritage, Turkey serves as a crossroads between Asia and Europe. The landmass known as Anatolia on which Turkey thrives has been home to numerous civilizations and their faiths and cultures, as attested by the 13 World Heritage Sites and countless religious sites you'll find here.
