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.

200 lira return from Kalkan by taxi. Apparently the longest beach in Turkey. It is a wide sandy beach miles long that is very shallow. You could walk 50m into the sea and still be up to your waist. Be careful though as the sandy...More

Loved Patara beach - miles of unspoilt beach, incredible waves but beach is shallow so it's safe even for an unconfident swimmer. You can hire beach loungers and umbrellas and there's a big beach bar for basic meals, ice creams and snacks.Toilets are by beach...More

If you're not used to smooth sandy beaches, then this one is nice. If you're used to them (as I am) this is standard and it was very crowded when I was there

What I liked. Great shore full of natural sand and the feel of wilderness. I wish I could get to that place when there's almost no-one just to feel it. What I disliked. Pretty bad facilities and the crowds.

Kids loved the waves so much. The waves Are away from the shore so it’s fun to sit on the sand and play with kids. If you like waves, get your half board and surf on it. It takes you to the shore. Dont expect...More

I would google airport transfer in Dalaman, Patara or Kalkan. They may offer shared transfers. We were quoted £75 for,a shuttle for 6people to Kalkan, so you might be able to find something that works for you online. Local... More
