The Turquoise Coast Sights

Patara Beach

  • Beach–Sight

Updated 11/21/2013

Fodor's Review

Beyond the ruins is a superb 11-km (7-mile) sweep of sand dunes. Popular with Turkish families and tourists from Kalkan, it's never so crowded that you need to walk far to find solitude. Note that umbrellas should only be planted within 20 yards of the sea to prevent disturbing the nests of Caretta caretta turtles. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free); showers, toilets. Best for : walking; swimming.
