Fodor's Review

Beyond the ruins of Patara is a superb 11-km (7-mile) sweep of sand dunes. Despite its popularity with Turkish families and tourists from Kalkan, you don't have to walk far to find some nice solitude here. Note that umbrellas should only be planted within 20 yards of the sea to prevent disturbing the nests of Caretta caretta turtles. In summer, be prepared for intense and unobstructed sun. Amenities: food and drink; parking (free); showers, toilets. Best for: walking; swimming.
