If one day you decided to visit Çeşme than you should see Ilıca Beach. I recommend you that just passed away by car a long the road nearby Ilıca Beach. For swimming and sun tanning there are better places.

A public beach with beautiful, fine white sand, crystal clear sea and shallow for many metres enabling one to see many small fish. Even in early October there were people sunbathing and swimming. Assortment of beach cafes on the beach itself and along the promenade.

What a beautiful sandy beach. Sand so thin and nice. Water is so clean and nice to swim. My girlfriend loved this beach, we will come back next year. And definitely come to September not really crowded. 5 * beach.
