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.

What a wonderful beach, plenty of sun-loungers and parasols with a lovely beach cafe, the sea is refreshing and shallow enough to walk quite away into the sea without losing your footing. Nice for a half day visit as when we went it was the hottest season. There are showers and toilet facilities. Worth a visit.

Beautiful, long, sandy beach. Big waves to play in. Lifeguards available, beach chairs and umbrellas available for a small additional fee. I recommend walking down the length of this beach first, for some private enjoyment. The further you walk, the more it almost feels like your own beach. Some people went nude, but were overall quite respectful and kept appropriate... More

Fabulous stretch of beach. Good facilities near the entrance and beds not too expensive. Easy to wander past the beds and find a quite spot, after all it is 18km long.

This is a brilliant beach. 18km of sand. From Kalkan you can get a taxi for about 50TL and there are taxis at the other end to take you home. We had a hire car and it was about 30mins from Kalkan. It's easy to find and sign posted off the main highway. There is ample car parking and a... More

Patara beach is an absolutely beautiful sandy beach which you have to pay a small fee to access. The waves are fantastic and my two teens spent hours diving through them. The great thing is the water doesn't get very deep so you can go out a way and not have to worry about being out of depth. Be sure... More

Definitely a must see! Highly recommended. The beach is amazing and goes on for miles and ancient Lycian capital is spectacular so make sure you do both when you visit. The beach can get a bit windy so you get sandblasted and the sea is lovely and shallow so warms up quick. Café and toilets at the beach. Nesting site... More

We went for the day to the beach and were so pleased we had. The sands were clean, the water clear and the sun shone. We paid for sunbeds and shades. We ate at the local restaurant located on the beach and the food was well cooked Turkish cuisine at a very reasonable price. We would recommend the beach to... More

Talked into it by our Thomas Cook rep who waxed lyrical about it being listed as one of the world's most beautiful beaches. Our Adda Tours cars duly arrived at the appointed 10:00am, and whisked us 15 minutes later to the entrance where we parted with another 7.5 TL to access the beach area. There was another more expensive option... More

Minimal development, everything you need and bed hire and the restaurant profits go back into the village.

If you like sandy beaches this is a must .It can get hot so you may need to hire an umbrella and sun bed. If you've got a li-lo with you take it as you can ride the waves in which can get a bit rough sometimes. There is a beach bar café for snacks and drinks.
