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.

We enjoyed our day here, it was relaxing and peaceful, despite being quite busy. The sun beds were comfy and total price to park and enjoy the beach was not expensive. We took a packed lunch so unsure if the cafe was pricey. There are...More

The beach is massive but still feels secluded as it is not overlooked by hotels, shops or businesses of any kind...just a beach bar. The sea is shallow for the first 100 metres ans the waves are huge. Just great fun standing waist deep in...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

Long beach with exceptional sand and unbelievable waves. Don't bother to swim just go with the flow of the waves.
