The beautiful resort of Altinkum lies on the sunny Aegean coast it is a popular choice with British tourists and also famous for its gently sloping sandy beaches fringing crystal clear waters, Altinkum means 'Golden Sands'. Its two long crescent beaches lie at each end of the resort, starting at the harbour and finishing at a rocky headland promontory, so providing over 1 km of beach, which offer plenty of places to sunbathe, take a dip or try your hand at one of the watersports on offer.
Transfers from Bodrum take around an hour and a half and there are regular flights from the UK during the summer months.
Altinkum - Perfect For Lazy Beach Holidays
The warm waters along this beach are mainly shallow for a couple of hundred metres and are ideal for both kids and non-swimmers who like to cool off from the heat of the day. Sunbeds on the sands make it easy to relax in tan-building comfort, or if you are feeling energetic canoes and pedaloes are available for hire.
The beach side promenade is popular for a stroll during the day and on an evening there are market stalls that sell souvenirs and local craft works which make for good holiday gifts. There are a good range of cafes, bars, restaurants and a small number of discos that offer a good choice of nightlife for nightowls and during the evening, Altinkum offers a huge choice of restaurants and bars to suit every taste with most entertainment centred around the two main squares and the bar street. In the height of summer the centre of the resort can become very lively, so for that time of year we recommend that families with young children choose accommodation away from the centre of town.
