The Blue Lagoon is easy to get to in Ölüdeniz. And it’s near Fethiye so you can get a taxi, rent a scooter, or get a rented a car.

What is the entrance fee?
We paid $0 to entre, and everyone else got in free. However, we heard sometimes it’s 7TL to enter. But as far as I could see, the entrance fee is free.
Swimming with Blue Lagon Turtles
Swimming with turtles at the blue lagoon. Okay, I’m going to be completely honest, I didn’t see a single turtle, and it’s possible you may not either. However, turtles enter the lagoon. Don’t worry if you don’t swim with turtles, there’s plenty of fish to snorkel with!
That reminds me.
Make sure you take your snorkelling kit, or at least some swimming goggles! I bought some at the Blue Lagoon restaurant and swam across to where the Oludeniz boat tours were docked need the rocky coastline about 100 metres out from the main lagoon beach.
Here’s the thing.
