This 12-mile long beach is also a National Park. Its proximity to the ruins keeps hotels from developing in the area, making it great for uncrowded swimming as well as bird watching.

Beautiful beach at the end of the road past the ruins of Patara. Ample parking, toilets and a reasonable beach restaurant.

Loved swimming here. The beach was beautiful. The cafe on the beach is not bad, we had burger and chips from there, it was not a bad price.

The first nine kilometres are a gentle walk. Accessing the other six requires “wading” across the fast-flowing river out of Xanthos. I have only been able to do this by swimming, and you need to be confident in the water (much colder than the sea)...More

One of the few sandy beaches in Turkey. Very long, good facilities (shower, bar, changing room, sunbeds, umbrellas). The water is not transparent though, typically there are waves due to strong winds from the Mediterranean. An experience to try, but for more complete impressions, I...More

A glorious bay backed by sand dunes. A small area is given over to umbrellas, beds and a cafe, but doesn't spoil the view as the beach is so vast you can easily escape to a quieter patch. The children (8 and 11) were thrilled...More
