Any Advice?
« on: June 09, 2012, 10:34:31 AM »

Off to Olu for the first time on 18th, any tips/ideas where to visit or avoid please.

We will be staying at the Blue Star, have arranged to eat at Mozaic Bahce, Jerry Boat trip and Saklikent(sorry!) Gorge with Carole and Tayfun. If any one knows of any great places to visit or eat, it will be appreciated.

Happy Holidays
Bernie xx 8)

Thanks Anne 8)

Help Bar Lounge does an amazing prawn and artichoke or asparagus (can never remember which) hot salad. It has sun dried tomatoes, pesto, feta cheese and is one of my fave dishes and plenty of it too  :D

Maybe you could take a little trip to Kayakoy the ghost town from Oludeniz. That is a lovely day out and we like to find somewhere traditional that has tree houses and have a ready barbeque bought to us and we cook our own selection of meats, tomato, pepper and onions to eat with our mezes.

There is a nice breeze in Kaya so walking around the ruins before lunching can be quite pleasant.

You may need to change Dolmus at Hisaronu so worth checking with the drivers in Olu what time the Kaya Dolmus gets to Hisaronu and also the check the last one back from Kaya as they didn't use to run so late.

Some people like to walk to Kaya but it is a hot and long climb up from Oludeniz; not so bad coming back down.

Thanks Nichola, that dish at the help bar sounds great. Kayakoy sounds worth a visit too!

The main beach at Olu is nice but also venture round to some of the private beaches.... Sugar Beach or Gench or Seahorse are all worth spending a day at.

And I second Jo b's post about the other beaches. Sugar Beach is owned by the same people as the Help Bar Lounge.

No fee to get in, pay to use sun beds etc and they have a nice restaurant too and although I believe they have the same menu there, obviously not the same chefs so the way the same meal is cooked at one may be a bit different to the other.

They also have a nice cheese cake and chocolate brownies - I know you like your desserts Bernie :P

Choose a small boat for your trips. The big Easy Riders boat was too big and loud for my liking.
