There are many resorts that are geared up to offer every minute of the day filled with activities to keep children occupied however, not everyone wants that type of holiday.

Ölüdeniz Water World

Located opposite the Yakamoz Hotel, Ölüdeniz Water World is a great family day out right on the doorstep.

Swim, snorkel, sunbathe with a book or just soak up the views. If the wind is right, you’ll enjoy a spot of sailing in the afternoon too. It’s a great way to recharge if you have a busy holiday planned.

Or, if you want a livelier day for the kids, enjoy a day out with the Pirates of Ölüdeniz on Dragon Boat.
