Hisaronu holidays – So much to do and see for every taste!
Hisaronu holidays land you in a lovely resort close to popular Fethiye and Olu Deniz. Hisaronu itself is a delightful small resort perched high on the mountain plateau, overlooking the beautiful lagoon and beach at Olu Deniz lagoon and just a few minutes by road from the party vibe at Fethiye. Hisaronu is vibrant and lively, stacked with gift shops, nightclubs and excellent restaurants. After dark the place comes to life and the cool mountain air is a treat after the region’s steaming hot days and bright sunshine.
There’s masses to do there, from horse riding to scuba diving, a brilliant Aquapark for the kids, jeep and quad bike safaris, boat trips, river rafting, fishing and microlight flights, which makes it the perfect Turkey destination for families, couples and groups of friends, whatever your taste. You can even take a day trip to the Greek island of Rhodes.
When to go to Hisaronu
Holidays to Hisaronu are an excellent compromise if you adore the heat but like it tempered by delicious mountain breezes. The air here is usually fresher and cooler than on the coast, especially in the evening. May, June, September and October are the best times to visit unless you’re a genuine lover of seriously hot and sticky weather, with the peak school summer holiday months of July and August delivering humid and incredibly hot days and balmy nights.
There are fewer flights off season but you can still enjoy a break there early or later in the year, even in the British winter, when many of the restaurants are closed but everyday life goes on, with self-catering always an option and a few local bars open all year round.
The weather in Hisaronu
The fabulous Turkish climate means package holidays to Hisaronu are a real treat. It can get wet between November and February but other than that you can expect lovely weather most of the year. May daytime temperatures average 25C and 12C at night. June sees things heating up nicely at 30C during the day and 16C at night. July and August are fiercely hot and often very humid, at 33C average during the day (but it can climb higher!) and a very peasant 18-19C after dark. Daytime in September, when many of the resort’s visitors head for home, is fantastic at 30C during the day and 15C at night.
Getting the best deal to Hisaronu
If you love hustle and bustle, lively nights and sun-packed days, you can’t beat July and August, when prices are at their highest with heat and sunshine to match. Travel outside the school summer break and you’ll find it quieter and less humid as well as cheaper. Spring and autumn breaks cost less outside the half term school holidays and you get the benefit of child-free beaches if that’s your preference.

Airport and transport need to know
Hisaronu is just 34 miles south of Dalaman Airport (DLM), an efficient and modern airport that’s very well serviced with shops and eateries and capable of handling millions of holidaymakers with ease and efficiency, partly thanks to its smart new terminal. Dalaman airport is accessible direct from a broad choice of British airports so there should be flights available near you, including London Gatwick and Stansted, Nottingham, Newcastle, Glasgow and Edinburgh, Bristol, Belfast and Leeds.
The transfer time is around an hour and a quarter, through the Turkish countryside with gorgeous views and vistas. The local buses run from the bus station six miles from the airport, but a shuttle bus should cost around £18 per person return, and a private taxi for 1-4 about £140 per vehicle return. Once you get to the resort Turkey’s bus services are excellent and you’ll enjoy finding your feet and travelling with the locals, who are extremely kind, helpful and friendly. If you hire a car, they drive on the right and they drive fast!
