Ortaca is a town and district of Muğla Province in the Mediterranean region of Turkey. Formerly a township dependant on Köyceğiz administratively, it was made into a separate district in 1987. Apart from Ortaca district center, there is one depending township with its own municipality which is Dalyan. Members of the Teke tribe of nomads were known as the first founders of what is now Ortaca. Ortaca is a typical Turkish working-class town with an economy based on agriculture. Ortaca derives benefit from the fertility of this plain and its economy largely depends on Oranges (portakal), Lemons (limon), pomegranates (nar), tomatoes (domates), peppers (açi biber) and cotton (pamuk). It lies midway between Dalaman and Dalyan, Sarıgerme is just a few kilometers to the south, and Gökbel is about 8 kilometers distant. The name Ortaca literally means "the town in the middle", possibly a reference to its location in the middle of the surrounding plain and because it is indeed - a regional hub geographically, administratively, and logistically. Generally when traveling to and from destinations like Fethiye, Göcek, Marmaris, Dalyan and other destinations served by Dalaman Airport you will either pass through or initiate your trip from the Ortaca Otocar (bus station). This is where you will board mini-buses for local transportation as well as find a large long-distance bus for more distant locations. The Ortaca Otocar has ticketing offices for the major bus companies that serve the south coast.
