this beach is the warmest on the whole cesme penninsula. best visited in the mornings as it can get crowded. amazing clear water, mostly flat and shallow - ideal for children.

I have traveled all over the Greece, but I haven't seen such a beach on Aegean coast. Probably best beach in Aegean part of Turkey, white sand, long coast and turquoise see. For those who love waves and warm see, best choice!

If place is not crowded and wind is decent, it is a great beach. Try to go in week. It is easy to reach from Izmir. So it may be unpleasantly crowded in weekend.

White sandy beach with cristaline blue warm waters and shallow sea. It can become windy at times.The hotel in which we stayed, otel yeni, owns the Eastern part of the beach. It is lovely, but can get too crowed or windy at times.

The sand is soft and golden. There always seemed to be a sun bed available so there was no problem as to where to sit. Lovely beach bars as well..

The part of the beach we used was slightly to the east of the port. Great sandy beach (though with some stony bits underfoot), very warm water staying shallow a long way out. We paid 20TL for two sunbeds and a parasol, there was a café and changing rooms etc. on hand. The only problem was that we chose a... More

This is a public beach next to the sheraton. We had no problem parking the car on the streets next to the beach. The beds/umbrellas are quite expensive for a public beach (40TL for two beds and one parasol), but definitely a necessity because the sun can get brutal. Water is nice blue, shallow for a long time. Not really... More

We came here early morning and it was a lovely time, playing with the water and all. Beach has fine sands and water is so calm and clear. Love the sun rise coming out from this area. Low season is a good time to come here, as it is quiet, you can enjoy the beach and view more. :) Some... More

A wonderful stretch of sand and beautiful sea, unfortunately lacking in good facilities and spoilt by litter. This was v early in the season and may be corrected next month.
