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.

Super long unspoilt sandy beach. Either rent a bed and brolly at the "busy section" near the car park or stroll a little further for a more peaceful spot. You can rent a brolly and take it with you a little further from the beds...More

A little off the road, and a little strange you will have to pass an entrance for the antique city - take a visit! - but this beach, famous for its nightly visits of sea turtles - is so unspoilt, it is pure nature!

Big sandy beach with one restaurant and showers. Accessible by car (car parking nearby) or Dolmus. You can also walk from Gelemis. Sand was VERY HOT, so I would definitely recommend sandals. Some days it could be windy with big waves, not pleasant to swim...More
