Following the recent opening of the superb new Dalaman International Airport, a number of low cost airlines have now announced a range of daily route into Dalaman, offering return flights from the UK as low as £79.99. With the airport being located just under an hour drive from the major resorts of Ovacik, Hisaronu, Fethiye and Olu Deniz, it is likely that the entire Mugla region will see increased visitor figures in the coming years.
One of the key benefits of Ovacik is its close proximity to the superb beach at Olu Deniz, where the turquoise blue lagoon and golden sand beaches have appealed to large numbers of British tourists in recent years. A family orientated resort, the protected status surrounding the resort of Olu Deniz has resulted in a large number of visitors to the region basing themselves in the resort of Ovacik, and taking the short bus ride down to the beaches for the day. At night however, the cooler climate on offer at Ovacik (although only 10 minutes in a bus from Olu Deniz, Ovacik is 1,500m above sea level) prove to be an appealing alternative to the warmer beach areas.
Similarly to Olu Deniz, the resort of Ovacik has been afforded protection as part of the national park. As such, development is closely regulated ensuring all building work is of the highest standards, and is designed to be in keeping with the local environment. The increasing levels of regulation and restriction on building work have ensured that there remains a high level of demand for property in Ovacik, whereas supply is restricted. As such, there is a consistent upwards pressure on prices in the Olu Deniz and Hisaronu and Ovacik regions, which look likely to continue for the foreseeable future.
Subsequently, there has been an increase in the demand for property for sale in Ovacik and the neighbouring resort of Hisaronu, as increasing supply continues to outweigh demand.
