One of the first things you will most likely fall in love with in Olu Deniz is the stunning Blue Lagoon. This turquoise colored expanse of water has to be seen in person for it to be fully appreciated and although it is a protected area, you can still access the beaches and swim in the waters as it is only building that it restricted near it. The waters here are also very calm and shallow making it perfect for the little ones to have a paddle and a swim without the worry of strong current and high waves. This is a great opportunity for any young ones who haven’t had any experience with the sea before to get used to it and give paddling a go.
