The Lycian coast resort of Ovacik is one of a cluster dotted along this beautiful part of Turkey, where holidays are as laid-back as the locals' everyday lives.
Ovacik is up the hill out of Fethiye town to Olu Deniz. It is located in between pine and almond forests, surrounded by very beautiful mountain views - and this secluded resort is yours to discover on an Ovacik holiday from The Co-operative Travel.
No one forces the pace on a cheap Ovacik holiday, and you're free to slow down as much as you want. Its hillside location means clear, fresh air, and the chance to clear your head of all the pressures and worries of daily life.
The mood in Ovacik is low-key, with the resort housing a handful of small shops and restaurants. The nearest beach, and more facilities, can be found a short dolmus ride away in Olu Deniz. But that beach is well worth the short trek, with its fine sands facing a backcloth of dramatic mountains, and lapped at by a clear turquoise sea.
Also in this compact cluster of resorts, you¿ll find Hisaronu just five minutes' ride away on the same bus. This is the most upbeat town in the vicinity, with plenty of authentic Turkish restaurants. After your meal, a glass of raki, the local equivalent of Ouzo, will certainly cleanse your palate! Then it may well be on to a local bar to dance the night away.
An Ovacik package holiday or all-inclusive holiday will certainly prompt you to kick back and relax. If you feel the need to raise the tempo, then it¿s easily done, but if you need a true antidote to your hectic daily life, then let The Co-operative Travel introduce you to Ovacik - you might just fall in love!
