Patara Plajı, Patara

(4.4/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Immerse yourself in the secluded atmosphere of Patara Plajı, 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.

  • It was a beautiful day at the beach. Our hotel was in Calis and we had rented us a car to visit this beach. And it was worth the trip. It was very very hot in Aug., hence the sand. The sun beds and umbrellas cost something, but you need that on all cases. The sea is awesome. You can walk very long purely and the water remains at knee height. The restaurant is not the Ripper, but well what solls. But this beach is worth a visit in any case.

  • The picturesque village of Kas, we stop for a swim in the sea and on Turkish history, in Patara Beach, a Pearl in the heart of Mediterranean archaeology. Are 12 km of fine sand, warm water, no resorts, no tourists, full of legends, and whose access is paid, to help keep everything very clean and preserved. In addition to the ancient Roman theatre with a capacity of more than 5000 spectators, there are other impressive monuments:) In the heart of ancient Lycia Route is worth visiting this protected beach where sea turtles come to spawn, and whose access is banned between 8 P.M. and 9 A.M.. We are in the cradle of ancient civilizations that lived long before Jesus Christ and they left impressive archaeological remains along the sea. The ruins are preserved and are located a few meters from the beach. We also highlight the imposing arc with more than ten meters high, the theater, the barn, the baths and the ruins of ancient Lycian Assembly. To keep it preserved, history and nature, you pay about 1 euro entry and leave the car in a parking lot a few meters from the sea.
