The Best Beaches of the Aegean Coast of Turkey

Updated on February 22, 2015

Many, when they think of Turkish beaches, will think of the sardine-tin like beaches, thumping music and bad behaviour which unfortunately does characterise some of the larger resorts. But there is much more to the Aegean Coast of Turkey than this laddish, hard-drinking, hard-partying, mass tourism culture. You will be surprised to find that you do not have to go very far from the main tourist centres in order to find a more peaceful holiday experience. Here are some of the better beaches, where you will not have to fight to find space for your towel:

Beylic Cove, Bozcaada

There are several excellent beaches around this area. The most developed is Ayazma which offers watersports and other tourist amenities. Sulubahce to the west has a good swathe of sand but no parking. The best beaches however are the small, less visited bays of Beylik Cove or Aqvaryum Bay which are located on the edge of Mermer Burnu Cape.

Foca

If you are looking for beaches to walk to or somewhere to camp with a beach, there is a lovely stretch along the 20km coast between Foca and Yeni Foca. The best sand is found halfway between the two at Acar Camping, though 700m or so before you get to that you can head down a path from the road to some perfect little coves with views out towards a tiny island.

Pamucak Beach, Kusadasi

The lovely, if sometimes windy, cluster of beaches around Kusadasi are the main attraction of this whole area of the Aegean Coast. The best of these fine beaches is said to be Pamacuk, 15km to the north of the city. It is accessible by minibus from the centre of Kusadasi. This is often said to be the best beach in the region.

Kargi, Bodrum

Bodrum does have quite the reputation. This is a location known for rowdy Brits abroad and loud clubs and bars. Many of the beaches here are crowded with serried ranks of (mostly) pale British tourists, but some of the beaches are not quite so busy. Kargi beach is not as crowded as many of the other beaches nearby. It is sandy and slopes gently down towards the richly coloured Aegean sea.

Ovabuku, Datca Peninsula

Ovabuku, Datca Peninsula

This bay is one of several on the quiet and peaceful Datca Peninsula. Ovabuku is the prettiest in a chain of three beaches. The beach itself is nothing particularly special – a stretch of pale shingle – but the location, unspoiled, authentic and backed by delightful pine, oak, myrtle and carob forests, makes it well worth a visit.

If you are thinking about a holiday to Turkey, why not consider travelling to one of the lesser known areas of the Aegean coastline? Not only will you find some beautiful coves and beaches, you will also find a plethora of historic sites, interesting towns, pleasing walks and, towards the interior, mountains which offer a whole range of different activities different to those found on the coast. Turkey is a good destination for those who want to lounge about, or for those who are keen to have a more culturally interesting or active trip.

      Hi Thomasjames1992,

      Turkey is a beautiful place! Would highly recommend a visit there. Greece is similar but still a lot more, different than Turkey.

      Thanks for your comment
