Patara is a really stunning beach which is not commercialised although you have to pay 5 TL entrance fee as it is a protected area. The beach is huge but there is just one beach cafe that also has showers and toilets. To get to a quiet spot we only had to walk a short way past the loungers and umbrellas. The sand however was unbearably hot in August and we could not get in the sea fast enough! The waves are fairly strong and care is needed with smaller children.

Compared to places like Bodrum, Patara is an unspoiled bit of paradise on the Turkish coast - especially the further you get from the tiny grid of umbrellas and chaise longues.

The community runs the entire operation that includes umbrella rental and a beach cafe, employs local youth, and feeds the money back into the local economy. All good reasons to support it.

Entrance to the beach and the Lycian ruins you pass through to get to the water is 5 TL per day, but you can ask for a 10-entry carde which costs 7.50 TL if you are staying in Patara village (actually known as Gelemis).

Sunset from the top of the dunes that are reached from the town center by a different road is definitely worth the hike.

Miles of sand. Surf. Warm blue see. Dunes, dunes, dunes. Not a building in sight (other than the one cafe) and the most romantic walk to this protected beach through Lycian ruines...

15 km of beautiful unspoilt beech which gently melts into a turquoise sea. A protected turtle site that offers miles of sand and sea and only you!
