Places to Go

Ephesus
This 3000 year old historic attraction is something of a must-see in Turkey, where you can step back in time into the ruins of an ancient city complete with amphitheatre, library, gymnasiums, temples, and even a brothel! A great place to get an impression of Turkey in days long gone.
Didim
Quiet, unassuming Didim sits next to Altinkum and is the perfect escape for when you fancy a change of pace. Take a stroll to this small coastal hideaway, with its traditional Turkish restaurants and hidden Roman ruins, for a day away from the buzz of jetskis and beach-front bars.
Dalyan
Dalyan is a fantastic inland spot on the Mediterranean coast, with a wealth of amazing natural and historical attractions for excited explorers to discover. On an excursion from Altinkum you can sail down the Dalyan River, smoother yourself in therapeutic mud pools, and wonder at the Lycian tombs carved intricately into the riverside cliffs.
Bodrum
This sophisticated Turkish resort is easy to reach from Altinkum and boasts a swanky new marina which is home to some seriously impressive yachts! You'll also find fantastic restaurants and a vast stone fort. While it's one of the most popular resorts in Turkey, Bodrum has managed to retain a taste of the traditional, with its white, cube builds and labyrinthine old town, alongside a lively nightlife.

Things to Do

Beach Hop
With three fantastic beaches to choose from, spending some time exploring them all is a must on holidays to Altinkum. Main Beach is the busiest, with fantastic facilities that mean you don't have to move from your spot on the sand all day if you don't want to! Second and Third Beach are a little quieter and great for when you fancy a change of pace. Scuba Dive
Scuba diving is a popular pastime on holidays in Altinkum, with the crystal clear waters being perfect for spotting all manner of life underwater. Spot colourful shoals of fish, and even the odd octopus or stingray, for a once in a lifetime exploration beneath the surface of the Aegean Sea.
Browse the Market
Stroll into Didim on a Saturday and a riot of colour and chaos awaits you at the market. Fresh fruit, pungent spices and handmade jewellery are all waiting to be bartered over, for a traditional Turkish market experience. And if you're after holiday essentials like beach towels or sunglasses, you're likely to find them cheaper here than in Altinkum's shiny shopping centres.
Dine Out
Whatever type of palette you have you'll be able to satisfy it in Altinkum. On the seafront you'll find English classics like steak and chips at Pinocchio's Fun Pub, but you have to give the Turkish treats a go at some point during your stay. Leave the prom behind and head to the backstreets behind Ataturk Boulevard for the biggest bargains on traditional cuisine, including stuffed vine leaves and baklava.
