Hisaronu
The cooler temperature in Hisaronu welcomes you back from a hard day at the beach and offers a well earned rest before your evenings entertainment. Hisaronu is a recently established resort and although it has grown in the last few years it still retains a friendly vibrant atmosphere.It is an ideal place for walkers as there are plenty of winding paths through the forests with wonderful views, and of course a visit to Kayakoy (the ghost village), where the Greeks once lived. For the braver of you there is paragliding from the top of Babadag mountain and landing on the beach. If you prefer a more relaxing day on the water there are a selection of boat trips available from both Olu Deniz and Fethiye.Olu Deniz beach sweeps round in a vast crescent of coarse sand and shingle to the Lagoon, which is a National Park area now and a small charge (50p) is levied for entry. The night life in Hisaronu can be as lively or as quiet as you make it,you have plenty of choice. A must for shoppers is the market in Fethiye, where you will find the best bargains as it is the biggest Bazaar in the area.Fethiye itself is worth a visit to take in the history of the place, or to have a romantic walk round the harbour. There is a good selection of small shops and stalls selling jewellery, clothing, footwear, water-sports gear and beachwear, as well as local products such as sweets, spices, glassware and textiles. There are numerous small well-stocked minimarkets throughout town. The Local market (Mondays) with everything from cooking ware, herbs and spices to a plethora of fake designer labels. More serious shoppers should head to Fethiye town, which has a larger covered market (Tuesdays). There is an array of restaurants, cafes and snack bars. Options include local and Turkish dishes (including meze, tasty samples of local specialities), Chinese, Indian, seafood, steaks and grills, pizza and even a vegetarian restaurant. Kebabs and burgers (with one international burger joint). Of course, there's the "everything with chips" and full English breakfast options, too. Most restaurants and bars are concentrated in the main shopping street, with a number of choices spread along the road between Hisaronu and Ovacik.
