Once a hippy, venue is a steep-sided gorge, rich in rock fish. There is no road access; however daily boat trips anchor in front of the shingle beach for half an hour.

Rumor is; there used to be many beautiful butterflies around the waterfall area at the end of the valley, specially at spring time. But last few years it’s almost impossible to see any butterflies in Butterfly Valley.

There is overnight accommodation for backpackers with sleeping bags. Boat services run to and from Oludeniz 3 times a day from near the Oludeniz Post Office. If the sea is choppy it is advisable not to wait till the evening return trip to Oludeniz.
