Ilica Plaji, Cesme

4.1
#1 of 18 in Outdoors in Izmir Province
Float in the clear blue water and sink your toes into the soft, white sand of Ilica Plaji. Relax in a lounge chair under an umbrella after swimming in the warm water, which is heated by the thermal hot springs under the seabed. Restrooms and showers are available for a fee, and beach and watersport equipment can be rented, although you can also bring your own equipment to the beach. Nearby parking is available, but this popular beach gets crowded quickly, so parking can often be difficult to find. Be sure to bring warm clothing, as the beach is known to be windy throughout the year.

  • A beautiful public beach, can get costly to rent the sun beds but worth it. The water is perfect and the "soil/mud" is good for the skin. The 'street food' sold in the beaches is a must try for tourists: Corn on the cob, muscles and simit. Enjoy!
  • Nice beach, but crowded and littered. Shower and changing room for 2TL. Beware of thiefs, leave valuables at home.
  • Public beach with amazing sand and warm, clear, the bluest water. Renting beach umbrella and 2 decks is only 50 TL
  • The beach is great but sunbeds are a bit pricey. 2 for 50 TL is alot! Bring your own umbrella.
  • The best beach around Çeşme. Shiny, charming sand!

Where to stay in Cesme

At the hub of Çeşme sits the Old Town and large marina, where you'll find everything from car rentals, travel agencies, restaurants, and cafes. Here you'll trade the convenience and commotion of the city for beach access. A number of reasonably priced independent hotels surround the marina, while a handful of three- and four-star hotels on the peninsula of Dalyan put you in proximity to seafood restaurants and pristine swimming. To get to and from the Old Town, you'll have to rely on the services of your concierge. The neighboring town of Ilıca to the east offers a long stretch of sandy beaches, dotted by luxurious four-star hotels and resorts for those looking to indulge, including a couple of international chains. South of Ilıca the newer development of Alaçati Bay is slightly more expensive in its accommodations than the Old Town, but it's a windsurfer's paradise. The Old Town, Ilıca, and Alaçati Bay all have a handful of guesthouses for the budget-conscious; Dalyan is home to the one hostel in the area.
