Hisaronu is up the hill between Oludeniz & Fethiye, Oludeniz being 5-10 mins away in a dolmus and Fethiye 10-15 mins away. Both have great boat trips.

As for things to see and do, there is a wealth of things to see and do; have a look on the Oludeniz & Fethiye forums; it's a lovely area.

You can get a boat trip if you are staying in Hisaronu - but it is up in the mountains so you have to travel down to either Olu Deniz (where the boats leave from the beach) or Fethiye (where the boats leave from the harbour!)

So Hisaronu is not on the sea like Marmaris, but there is plenty to see and do in the area!

Hi Chez,

We've been going to Hisaronu for the last 20 years and I'm still finding new things to do, so more than enough to keep you all busy.

As for boat trips, they go from Oludeniz (beach) or Fethiye (harbour), but they all collect you at your hotel and drop back off after the trip is done.

The main difference with boats trips in this area is you won't find any of them being all inclusive as you do in Marmaris.

Have a look at the below links for things to do, prices etc. Both tour operators are based in Hisaronu and are reputable.



Hope this helps.

Cheers Adam

we have been to marmaris but prefer Hisaronu area as lots to do,loads of great places to eat, bars to suit all tastes and we find people seem more friendly. For great trips with briliant service see the link below, yes you can get cheaper but we have never had a bad experience and have complete peace of mind once we have booked our trips.

As everyone has said you can either get a trip that departs from Oludeniz or Fethiye. Fethiye is our preference, much easier to get onto the boat from the harbor. There's loads to do in Hisaronu and the surrounding resorts. The Hotel Room Escape in Ovacik is excellent fun, there's a few smaller water parks, The Olive Garden in Kabak is always worth a visit, visit the lagoon or explore the streets of Fethiye.

Hisaronu definitely!! Hi chez. Hrew up spending 6weeks out of the year in Marmaris and icmeler for 19 years ... Came to hisaronu 7 yrs ago as part of a late deal and have never returned to Marmaris since... I'm about to book my 11th visit to hisaronu and massively regret all the time spend on the Marmaris side. Similar trios to Marmaris just better scenery and people. They respext you and don't hassle you it's a tiny place and just perfect in comparison to marmaris.
