Patara Beach

Patara beach is world famous with its 18 km of golden sands which forms scenic sand dunes and gorgeous beach which is voted as one of the best beaches in many different media.

Strict laws kept Patara beach unspoiled by forbidding to build around. It is all white sand even a pubble can not be find .Patara beach is so special, it is a good place to rest and enjoy nature and also it is home to the Caretta Carettas. The only man-made thing at the Patara Beach is the Beach Café which is run by local governorship to promote local facilities.

Umbrellas and sun beds can be hired for a affordable price from the café or one can have some privacy with walking a bit. To get to the beach our guests simply can use our shuttle service or walk to the beach across ancient city of Patara which will take approx. 20 min.

* Caretta Carettas are beautiful sea turtles which can weigh up to 200kg. They come to Patara beach at night in summer months to lay their eggs. New turtles come after 60 days and they head to reflection of moonlight in the sea.Most interesting thing is they come back to the same beach to lay their eggs from thousand km away. In order to keep this species Patara beach has to be protected.

“get away from the crowds”

The great thing about this beach is that it is big enough to get away and have almost a bit of private beach. Swimming and splashing about was great fun. (a lot warmer than my usual uk swim!) The water was a lovely temperature and the sand soft and inviting. We walked maybe 10/15 minutes along the beach to get away from it all but for those who want to be nearer to the facilities there were sunbeds, loos, food etc nearer the car park. Apparently there is horse-riding in the area which would be lovely on such a huge beach. We only drove through the lycean ruins but must visit them properly when we return. Hadn't realised the local link to Santa Claus / St Nicholas either
