Altinkum is a small and quiet resort, making it perfect for families with young children and those seeking a relaxed, easy-going beach holiday. The resort town's main attraction are its three long sandy beaches, that stretch from the small harbour at one end of a gently shelving bay to a rocky cliff at the other end. Little wonder that the name Altinkum means 'golden sands'.
In this resort devoted to leisure and pleasure, lazy days on the beach, perhaps indulging in some watersports, are the order of the day, while night, time is spent trying out the laid back restaurants and bars, many of them serving up British fare and named for familiar English landmarks.In years gone by, the resort was packed with Turkish and british tourists in high season but in recent years the number of Brits has declined while all other nationalities have risen.
Those with a passion for history will find Altinkum perfectly placed for sight seeing. One will find the Ancient Greek Temple of Apollo at Didyma, the vast Roman ruins at Ephesus; Prienne, Miletos, Bafa Lake, Ku■adasi, Bodrum and more, all within a short drive.
