Paragliding and air sports in Blue Lagoon
Ölüdeniz is known all around the world as Turkey’s Blue Lagoon because of the perfectly turquoise and aquamarine hues of its waters. A tourist hot spot, there’s much more to this heavenly beach than just chilling in the sand. Check out our tips to make the best of Ölüdeniz.
Ölüdeniz is very close to Fethiye, so if you have rented a car, the ride there (about 20 minutes) is quite comfortable, as it’s a wide road that is well paved. If you’re on a budget, then you can take the dolmuş (minibus) from Fethiye to Ölüdeniz and pay a small fee of five Turkish liras. The dolmuş departs from the PO Petrol Station that’s right by the bus terminal and makes a few stops before it arrives at Ölüdeniz. For a more comfortable ride, you can also choose to hire a cab from Fethiye to Ölüdeniz, which will cost you around 80 Turkish liras.
Of course, the most popular activity is to rent a beach chair and enjoy the sun and the beautiful calm waters of Ölüdeniz. If you’d rather hang out at a private beach with a restaurant and bar, then check out Sugar Beach, which also has bungalows in case you want to stay overnight. For the more active travelers, the Blue Lagoon just happens to be one of Turkey’s best spots for paragliding, given its amazing view of the lagoon and surrounding coves.
Paragliding is an adventure sport that captures the wind and take you soaring above the ground to gain a 360 degree view of the mountains and sky. See best deals in Blue Lagoon

“This was an unforgettable experience. You get a really nice overview of the city and all the pilots are so kind. I did it with 3 friends and a nice little detail is you get walkie talkies to talk to each other while paragliding which we found very cool. It’s more than worth the price!!” – Jolan L.
“I had a wonderful experience with Marcos and his staff. Marcos arranged for round trip transportation from Lara Beach to the take off area. Weather could not have been better. Davut, the pilot, was extremely confident and experienced. I felt very safe with him flying. The moment of take off is simply breathtaking. If you are going to try paragliding once, do it in Blue Lagoon, can’t beat the scenery.” – Magda C
