Travel: Turkey, Olu Deniz

I'm currently in the depth of holiday blues. I was in beautiful scorching sunshine, I boarded a plane, and then I was back in grey clouds and rain!

I've spent a week in the beautiful south west corner of Turkey, Olu Deniz. Protected by scenic mountains and overlooking beautiful beaches and blue lagoons, it was a little piece of paradise in what is currently a country in despair.

From the moment we stepped off the plane we were met by such friendly and helpful locals that were so clearly eager to make your trip enjoyable, from our transfer driver to our masseuse.


We stayed in the beautiful Sun City Beach Club Hotel. Filled with olive and palm trees, bright vibrant flowers and summer tunes it felt truly tropical. Our hotel had its own spa centre, so when in Turkey, we felt it only right to have a Turkish bath. It was certainly an experience and I suspect most aren't usually as full of life as ours were.. There were water fights, bubble fights, sliding over marble tables and also the real side of the bath with exfoliation, washing, face masks and massage.


For such a tiny part of the country there are certainly so much to do, we went quad biking through the woods and tracks and although we didn't see many views, the mountains looked fantastic and we definitely had a wonderful time!
Paragliding is a must! Sadly we left it too late and ran out of money but seeing the footage from other gliders, the views look outstanding, truly breathtaking! It's definitely on my to-do list! There are boat trips and tours of the blue lagoon, scuba diving, jet skiing, and that's just a few!


I travelled to turkey with my boyfriend and his family for a wedding. Although I have only been to a handful of weddings myself, I don't think words or pictures could truly describe the beauty of that day. The vows were on a jetty in a secluded bay overlooking the sea and the mountains. The hotel reception was nestled within the mountain with the backdrop of an infinity pool, the sea and the most incredible sunset.  I couldn't be happier or more grateful to be considered part of the family to be welcomed to join in their day! 

By far, Turkey is one of the best holidays I have ever experienced.
