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.

The most beautiful beach I have ever been to! If you love to get away from the crowds and have a backdrop of mountains, dunes and woods then you will be in heaven here! The only building is a small beach restaurant at it's eastern end with some sunbeds and umbrellas. You can hire one for 5Tl or 10 if... More

If you want a beach that's crowded, noisy and buzzing, then Patara beach isn't for you. If you want miles of clean white sand, with a small area of sunbeds to hire, and a friendly community run beach cafe, where you can laze and listen to the waves and swim in the safe shallow waters, then pay this beach a...

The beach is lovely - miles of sands. You have to be careful not to go in the places turtles are breeding. Loungers and umbrellas available at reasonable price. My only reservation is that the sea is quite dangerous at times. Waves are too wild for the timid swimmer or for small children.

A wonderful beach. You get to it through the ruins of a Lycian city. Clean clear water in a turtle nesting conservation area on golden sand. There can be surf with a strong rip so swimming between the flags is advisable if you're not a confident/experienced sea swimmer but on other days the water is like glass. Beach towels/beds are...

We travelled here from Fethiye by coach. It cost 15 TL (approx £4) per person. The journey took approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. It is an easy journey with a lot to see on the way. We were dropped off a short distance from the beach and got a taxi from there to the beach for 10 TL (approx... More

A beach clean, quiet, with fine sand and a very large size. A particularly special place for egg laying turtles. A smooth entry into the water, with waves invites you to stay as long in the water.

Good swimming and waves. Long beach so plenty of space although most people congregate near the beach cafe/life guard area. Very hot sand! Umbrella and lounger rentals available. Loungers are the inlexible plastic type. Cafe serves straightforward meals and cold drinks. As beaches go it's nothing overly special but absolutely fine for a day. Easy access to the ruins is...
