Turkey beaches - Cesme or Olu Deniz?

Jump to last reply

Planning a tour of Turkey and we're trying to include a beach visit in mid August. We'll be coming from the Ephesus area. The travel agent I've been working with suggested either Cesme or Olu Deniz, and said that OD was probably the nicer one, albeit a bit further away (which is fine with us).

Any recommendations of one over the other? It would be nice if there was something to do in the area - a cute town and/or historical something - instead of just a beach. But beach is important too for R & R.

We are a family w/a young teen, tween, and kid, therefore we are not interested in having drinking contests and closing down the bars. Not sure if either one of these areas is known for having a hard core party scene, but please advise if this is the case.

Thanks!
