Beautiful View but too windy

Very nice beach with a breathtaking view but too windy. Renting the chairs and the umbrella is affordable. Can get a little crowded.

Cramped in too many sun beds at a small space. This is not for me. Most of the other turists do not take into account that it is cramped and you get kickt and they shake their towel on you, kids screaming.

My wife and I spent time at Ilica beach a few days ago. It's nice to walk from one side to another, and it's one of the nicest beaches in the region of Cesme that hasn't been too developed with beach clubs. That said, Cesme lacks the amenities of some others. There are thousands of OK lounge chairs for recent,... More

The only positive thing about this beach is that its very close to Izmir. 1 hour with minibus. Maybe shallow water is geat for kids,but for grown ups you have to walk endlessly to a deeper place to actually enjoy swimming. Water is not very transparent, totally nothing to look at if you like diving. The beach is called public... More

Crystal clear waters and a long stretch of clean golden sand. This is the best beach in Cesme and it's free entry. You can rent a sun lounger incl. table and umbrella for just 15 lira. Carribean eat your heart out

Ilıca is a very famoıs beach in Çeşme. They say there is 40 different mineralöin water. It is a sandy beach and not deep. Ideal for children but can be waves when there is wind. It is a long beach and ideal for older people,children and families.

There were very few people walking the beach when we were. If there are spots of heated water, which was what we'd hoped to find, we didn't find them. If they were off shore you'd freeze getting back to shore and dry. There are huge and super expensive hotels and homes and it is obvious this is The place in... More

We were with family in this beach. It was in June. So, in this time first we were in Bodrum. After in Ilica. I want to tell that in Bodrum was cold water. But! In Ilica it was amazing! Because the thermal water comes to sea water. Also we seen an oysters, not deep in the water.Want to come back!
