The Central and Southern Aegean Coast Sights

Altınkum

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 11/25/2013

Fodor's Review

For a break after all the history, continue another 5 km (3 miles) from Didyma south to Altınkum, popular for its pale-sand beach. The sand stretches for a bit less than 1 km (½ mile) and is bordered by a row of decent seafood restaurants, all facing the water, and some small modest hotels. At peak times, a lifeguard watches over the 500-meter public, Blue Flag–designated beach (halk plajı), which quickly gets crowded in summertime. Amenities: food and drink; lifeguards; showers; toilets. Best for: swimming.
