“Yumurtalik beach”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

Interesting place where the main attraction is Ayas Castle ruins on its beach which the locals practically built their boat marina into. There is also a small castle on an island approx. 1500ft from the beach. I hear you can get a local to boat you out to it for a small fee, but with the language barrier we did not try. Some people can swim the distance but several people have died both here and at Karatas due to strong undertows. There are Caravanserai ruins located in the center of the city and two watch towers located on the beaches out west of the city. While here we were able to find parking next to the Mosque which you can see has been converted from part of the original castle that was here. An attendant promptly put a parking ticket on our car, but this is just to track your visit to charge you a small parking fee when you leave. We paid 2TL for about 1.30hrs. Yurmatalik is a summer destination for locals. In the fall and winter months the population is low, but it triples in the summer months! To find the city can be a bit difficult if your just using road signs and not GPS, because a small village located more inland goes by the same name, and their roads do not connect.
