The village and the beach by the lagoon was locally known as Belcekız or Belceğiz before the area became a magnet for mass tourism, although today many people in the area have no idea about what Belcekız is and the town as well as the lagoon are both known as Ölüdeniz, which literally means "dead sea" and originally referred only to the lagoon itself.

Paragliding: A number of companies in Ölüdeniz offer paragliding opportunities from the summit of nearby Mt. Babadağ, about 1,900 mt from the sea elevation. A "trip" from the top to the beach takes around an hour and offers stunning views of the Blue Lagoon and the valleys and mountains covered with pine forests around. Training and tandem flights are also possible for those unexperienced at paragliding.
Market: One thing to do while in Oludeniz is to getin your private car and go to the market in Fethiye on a Tuesday. There is absolutely everything there (including a lot of fakes). It is a very busy market not only used by holiday makers but by Turks buying their produce. Go to the fish stalls, buy some fresh fish and then go to one of the nearby restaurants where for a few TL will cook it for you.
Boat Rental: There are several people along the beach that offer rental of a small motor boat for a few hours .
