Create an itinerary including Patara Beach
Immerse yourself in the secluded atmosphere of Patara Beach, known for its soft sand and clear sea. The 18 km (11 mi) long beach reaches a width of 300 m (100 ft) in some places, making it one of the largest in Turkey. Sea turtles often lay their eggs in this protected area. Amenities, even if somewhat basic, include cafes, showers, and restrooms. The depth of the water increases gradually, making it a popular swimming spot for visitors of all levels, as well as kids. Avoid the area when the wind picks up, however, as the beach can be exposed to large waves, and swimming can become dangerous.

  • Patara beach is stunning, for a walk, sunbath, but sundowners on the dunes with friends is highly recommended. Take the road through the village up to the dunes car park.

  • Very clean beach. You need to pay 50 TL for two sunbed and 1 umbrella.
  • Good sandy beach but there is a lot of woods which may injured you.
  • Dirty toilets for 30 lira per person. No responses after asking for papers, disappointing.
  • Nice beach surrounded by ancient ruins. It was little bit windy and wavy..
  • Amazing views but the beach is so windy that we had to leave. Entrance is 70TL per person
