Ilica beach is a very nice beach close to the city of Cesme (about 3km). It is easy accessible, if you use the local liitle buses (dolmus), it takes 5-10 min. and you need 3 TL to get there.

crystal clear and warm water. Sometimes can be too windy and there´s a lack on the services, could be improved. Anyway it´s a pleasant beach to spend a few hours or all day.

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.
