Owner description: This 12-mile long beach is also a National Park. Its proximity to the ruins keeps hotels from developing in the area, making it great for uncrowded swimming as well as bird watching.

The great thing about this beach is that it is big enough to get away and have almost a bit of private beach. The day we went it was windy with a lot of waves. Swimming and splashing about was great fun. (a lot warmer than my usual uk swim!) The water was a lovely temperature and the sand soft... More

Due to the building and development restrictions (imposed on this area due to the archaeological site nearby), this beach is a gem! The beach is big and sandy, but it's not that busy. There's a cafe which could be classified as basic - but everything you buy will support the community. Good day on the beach! Feels far away from... More

Patara is a lonely beach. Do you like to feel like you are deserted? Do you like it alone yourself, or with few friends or darling? then you can enjoy the beach. but the beach only. the sea is wavey unlike rest of Antalya. You must be a good swimmer. but the beach is huge, and lonely. it is one... More

Cafe good for ice cream and beer. Big open beach so don't go if it's windy. Showers and toilets available.

This is a very beautiful beach. It's very long, hard to see the end. The sea doesn't get deep fast, so it's great for families with children. There are facilities nearby, too.

We visted this beach on two consecutive days as it was so beautiful and unspoilt. The sand is soft and and sea is warm. It is shallow but shelves - so be aware with smaller ones! The currents can be a bit strong so great for body boarding. Would recommend you take food wuth you as restaurant is a bit... More

Very soft sand and miles of beach... Basic facilities but wonderful walk on the beach. Remember to take water with you. And that the beach closes at 19h because it is protected for the turtles

While I was in Patara I discovered Syessa Ana Natural Goods. Patara is a little town so Syessa Ana shop is easy to find, it is not on the main street but just a short walk down the side street. She offers a vast variety of locally made beautiful scarves, clothes, paintings, silver jewelry, etc. It is cash only so... More

This beach area is very clean and there is a small café there. The beach slopes very gently and the water was clear and warm.
