Hisaronu Travel Guide
Shopping The main street of Hisaronu is well supplied with a variety of stores selling everything holidaymakers look for in Turkey, from fake designer-wear, to carpets and leather goods. Haggling is expected and part of the shopping experience. There is a beachfront mini-market that offers a number of bargains.
Restaurants Hisaronu has a veritable smorgasbord of restaurants to cater for the tastes of international tourists, from traditional English, to sizzling pizzas and spicy Mexican. Most are along the main street, including favourites like the Shine Indian Restaurant and the Dragonara Chinese restaurant. For traditional Turkish delights the Olive Tree is hard to beat, while Malibu offers a mixture of English and Turkish cuisine. Don't overlook the street vendors and their delicious kebabs.
Nightlife The nightlife of Hisaronu is legendary on the 'Turquoise Coast', its clubs and pubs rocking until the early hours during the summer season. Holidaymakers will find everything from Turkish theme nights to British soccer, 60s discos or full-on nightclubs. Most clubs are centred around the main street of town.
Activities There is no need to spend all day lying on the beautiful Oludeniz beach, or beside the hotel pool (unless this is the option you prefer). Hisaronu is packed with opportunities to get out and about. Most popular activities are paragliding from Babadag Mountain to land on the beach, canoeing down the Xanthos river to Patara, pitching paintballs in the pine forests, visiting the bazaar in nearby Fethiye, taking a glass-bottom boat trip or a day trip to the Greek island of Rhodes, or an excursion to the ghost town of Kayakoy. Watersports like scuba diving and waterskiing are popular.
Negatives During the summer months the beaches can be a little crowded so it's best to secure a spot early.
