YOUR DESTINATION

They don’t call it the Turquoise Coast for nothing. A long spit of golden sand stretches across the mouth of a picturesque lagoon of calm waters. Blue Lagoon – hidden from the world by towering mountains is no ordinary destination.

WHERE IS ÖLÜDENİZ?

Ölüdeniz is a small beach town in the South West of Turkey, located between an impressive mountain range and some of the world’s most beautiful coastlines.

WHICH AIRPORT SHOULD I FLY INTO?

The closes international airport to Ölüdeniz is Dalaman Airport (IATA code: DLM). This airport is 60km from Ölüdeniz and it takes about an hour to drive. There are bus and taxi services from the airport to Ölüdeniz. As a Bright Triber, you will be picked up from the airport when you arrive.

You can see the route from Dalaman Airport to Ölüdeniz here.

Alternatively, Antalya and Milas/Bodrum airports are both 215km from Ölüdeniz and it takes over 3 hours to drive to Ölüdeniz.

Bright Tribe certainly recommends that you fly into Dalaman Airport. If you need information or support, please contact us before you purchase your flight tickets.

DO I NEED A VISA TO ENTER TURKEY?

It depends on your nationality. There is a good chance that you are exempt from visa. Please check here whether you need a visa.

If you need a visa, an e-Visa will cost you around USD20 and you can make an online application here.

An e-Visa can be obtained easily from anywhere with an internet connection and it saves time that you would otherwise spend on visa applications at Turkish missions or at the ports of entry into Turkey. You can get more information about e-Visa applications and check whether you are eligible to apply here.

Alternatively you can get an On-Arrival visa at the ports of entry into Turkey or at the Turkish missions in your country.

WHAT IS THE CURRENCY?

The Turkish Lira; usually abbreviated as TL, is the currency of Turkey. You can see the latest exchange rates here.

Many shops in Ölüdeniz accept British pounds, Euros and US dollars. Exchange offices are frequent. ATM machines are abundant and available 24 hours a day. Foreign debit and credit cards are widely accepted.

WHAT IS THE TIME ZONE?

Turkey is on the Eastern European time zone (Greenwich Meridian Time +2). You can check the current time in Turkey here.

Ölüdeniz experiences a Mediterranean climate which means mild to warm temperatures throughout the year. You can find more information on the Met Office web site.

If you are not a fan of the heat, the autumnal months in Ölüdeniz may be preferable, when the sea is still welcoming and the heat is less intense, making outdoor sporting activities more pleasant. The temperature in Ölüdeniz in the autumn begins to get a little cooler, but it is highly unlikely to drop below 20°C, even by November. Visitors can still expect between 8 and 10 hours of sunshine in September and October. From mid-September nights can start getting a little cooler, so it is advisable to bring a light jumper or jacket.

Arguably the finest beaches in Turkey are within minutes of driving distance to the Bright Tribe retreat. We listed out some of the nearby beaches and the time it will take us to get there:

  • Belcekız Beach (5 minutes)
  • Blue Lagoon (7 minutes)
  • Kıdrak Beach (7 minutes)
  • Butterfly Valley & Beach (15 minutes)
  • Gemile Beach (27 minutes)
  • Çalış Beach (30 minutes)
  • Kabak Beach (37 minutes)

The cost of living in Turkey is significantly lower compared to most European countries. This means food, drinks, activities, transportation and everything else is very likely to be much cheaper than back home. We’ve picked a small sample of common goods (with their Turkish Lira price) so you can compare:

  • Meal at an inexpensive restaurant: 20 TL
  • Domestic Beer (0.5 liter draught): 13 TL
  • Imported Beer(0.33 liter bottle): 15 TL
  • Cappucino: 9 TL
  • Coke/Pepsi (0.33 liter bottle): 3.20 TL
  • Water (0.33 liter bottle): 1 TL
  • Bottle of wine: 30 TL
  • Taxi (start): 4 TL
  • Taxi (1 km): 2.5 TL

You can see more items and their prices in every currency here.
