Altinkum in English means ‘Golden Sands’, so there is no need to think too hard about what to expect on your visit. Located south of Izmir and 100km from Bodrum, Altinkum is home to a beautiful bay which curves around the coast which creates a little bit of heaven for holidaymakers looking for a relaxation in the sun.
Whilst families and couples litter the beaches during the day, once night falls the beachfront comes alive with restaurants, cafes and bars full of a cosmopolitan crowd all having a good time.
Altinkum has got the balance just right between culture and holiday fun. One day you could explore the local temples, the next you could find yourself whizzing down a huge waterslide. The mix is just perfect for family holidays. Where else will you be within reach of the second largest ancient site in the world – Ephesus – as well as a huge water park?!
For a spot of indulgence and culture, make sure you treat yourself to a local Turkish bath. Once you have experienced the ultimate in relaxation techniques you’ll be ready to hit the beach and heighten your relaxation experience even more
Stroll along the beach promenade and you’ll be met by plenty of bars and cafes which keep the refreshments coming throughout the day. Why not book a fishing tour in the morning before returning late in the afternoon and reliving your experience over a cold beer on the beachfront? Sounds like pure bliss to us
