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.

amazing beach

The cafe at the beach is expensive and not great food but its your only option! There are sunloungers and parasols for you to hire which we definitely needed.

A long drive from D400 to beach. A fee think 17TL was paid to visit as it's a protected area. Free carpark. Beach is fantastic and extensive and sea shallow and safe. Hired a sunbed and umbrella but didn't stay long as so hot and tired after trek at Sakilkent. Café available and toilet and shower but were shabby and... More

We tried several beaches whilst on holiday in Kalkan and this was our favourite. It does cost 7.50 TL to get in but this is for 10 entrances - so for three of us allowed us to enter 3 times for just less then £2..not really an expense. The drive down to the beach passed the stunning ruins. When busy... More

When the beach is 18km you can find a quiet spot. That was a nice change for pretty beaches in the Med. The beach was clean and warm really warm. It is shallow for a long way out so safe for children. We visited on a cloudy day which was fine because it was still really warm without the intense... More

This was quite a lovely sandy beach but it was very windy when we went and it marred the day. The food in the beach bar was quite ordinary.

This was our first trip to this beach, we have been coming for 4 years and went to other beaches but tried this beach and we were not let down. You have to pay to gain entry to the beach and can pay a little more to look at the ruins there, when paying it does get you entry for... More

Nice sandy beach which is rare within a 50km radius (mostly cliffs and a few pebble beaches). Also shallow sea, so it's perfect for children and not outstanding swimmers. Quite a few people near the entrance but there is no problem in finding a spot - you have kilometers of beach. There are lots of historic monuments to see around,... More

I have been to Patara Beach in 2010 and it is amazing to see that nothing has changed after 5 years in a country where we have construction sites everywhere. Come and stay at one of the pensions in Gelemis Village!Enjoy the walk to sea saluting the ancient ruins...Then, you will have a chance to share golden sands and turquoise... More

If this beach was anywhere else on the Med, there would be 3 miles of concrete tourism. But Patara has nothing but a simple beach bar, sun beds, for £5. Pure gem. I wandered round the ruins too. Had a Roman city to myself. Wow
