The Most Beautiful Beaches and Bays of Didim
- Altınkum Beach
The first address where you can enjoy the sea, sand and sun in Didim is Altınkum Beach, which is famous for its golden sandy beach. Since this is the most well-known and central beach of Didim, it gets quite crowded in the summer months. The blue flag beach has both a shallow and a wide sandy beach. In this way, it is preferred for families with children. Entrance to Altınkum Beach is free, if you wish, you can rent sun loungers and umbrellas for a fee. There are also many restaurants where you can meet your eating and drinking needs on the beach, where facilities such as shower, changing cabin and toilet are available.
- Monastery Bay
Monastery Bay is located 10 kilometers from the center of Didim. It is also very close to Altinkum. Monastery Bay stands out with its clear sea and can be wavy in windy weather. If you want to swim comfortably in the bay with large pebble stones and small rock fragments, do not forget to take sea shoes with you. It is possible to rent sun loungers and umbrellas in Monastery Bay, where entrance is free of charge. If you stay at sunset, let us remind you that a wonderful view awaits you. There is only one buffet style establishment on the beach, and there is a large parking lot.
- Akbuk Beach
Akbuk Beach is 20 kilometers from the center. The beach is located in Akbuk, the popular holiday resort of Didim. The beach is surrounded by pine forests. You can spend time with nature and sea views on Akbuk Beach, which has an 11-kilometer coastline. You can swim in Akbuk Beach, which has a very clean sea, accompanied by fish. If you don’t like waves, Akbuk is for you. Although the beach is crowded on weekends, it is always possible to find a secluded corner because the coastline is quite wide.
The Most Beautiful Bays of Didim
- Dalyanaki Bay
If you are looking for a shallow and calm sea, I suggest you change your route to Dalyanaki. The beach is located next to the Social Facilities of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs. Dalyanaki Bay is one of the quiet corners of Didim. It almost resembles a natural harbor. Since the bay does not get wind, you can easily swim. Thanks to its shallowness, it is suitable for those who cannot swim and families with children. There are no commercial businesses in Dalyanaki Bay. For this reason, do not forget to bring your food and drinks with you.
- Aquarium Bay
One of the most beautiful bays of Didim where you can swim with fish is Aquarium Bay located in Polis Moral Campground. Located about 9 kilometers from Didim, Akvaryum Bay stands out with its turquoise water. I recommend you to be careful while driving because the road is winding. Daily boat tours are available. Entrance fee to Aquarium Bay is 25 TL per person. Sunbeds and umbrellas are included in the price. It is better to go early as the crowd will increase on the weekends.
