I liked that it has crystal clear, shallow, sandy waters. Sheraton's private beach is great but pricey ($25-50 depending on what day). It also features water sports, which I love.

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.

One of the longest beaches in Turkey. Ilıca beach has very fine sand. Free to enter but some of the parts has beach clubs and hotels so you need to pay if you want to enter those parts.

This famous long sandy beach is located on the crystal clean waters of Ilica area. When the wind is strong it's a perfect place for playing with the waves, when it's calm the water quality is absolutely perfect. The only thing is that it's overcrowded during the high season.

It is one of the nice beach of West Turkey. Fabulous crustal clear sea & sandy beach. There is no music, which it makes place peaceful.. But you need to catch the good weather to go. In the windy weather we found very difficult to swim. However when the weather nice and calm its a big pleasure to be there.
