Fantastic beach. Nice sand. Open to public. Affordable! I highly recommend "Kucuk Plaj". Free parking, 10TL ($5US) per person for tanning beds. Free wifi. Friendly service.

Ilıca is the one of the most beautiful beaches in Turkey. This is a public beach with small cafes and parasol&sunbed renters. There is Sheraton Hotel near the middle of the beach but you can pass through it by walking. This beach is even more stunning if you can visit it when there isn't any wind from the northerly directions, unfortunately 90% of the time it is very windy! The food and drinks sold along the beach are modestly priced especially compared to the expensive beach clubs of Cesme. One parasol and two sunbeds can be rented for 20-25TL or you can directly lay on the warm sandy beach! The water is quite warm compared to other areas in Cesme thanks to warm underground water coming to surface near the beach. You should definitely check it out if you are in the region. One warning, on Sundays it is very crowded so try to avoid it on Sundays.

I believe Ilica beach is one of the most attractive coast in the Europe and if you come to cesme or izmir you must see such a beautiful scene!

The water is clear, clean and shallow. It was warm and calm and we loved every minute of the view. The music in the beach clubs could have been quieter though. I am not a fan of techno music at 11am on a calm beach. I'd rather listen to the calm waves.
