Altinkum, which is served by flights to both Bodrum and Izmir, means Golden Sand in Turkish and this relates to Altinkums two fabulous sandy beaches, one at either end of the resort. They are perfect for families with children as they slope gently into the sea but are just as appealing to those who simply want to unwind, take it easy and do some serious tanning! There are plenty of watersports for the more energetic and, for night owls, theres some great night life.
Altinkum has a great selection of bars and eating places, a wide choice of mini-markets and shops, countless night spots and two of the best beaches in this part of Turkey. Theres also great sightseeing and its perfect for couples and families alike. A really lovely resort with something for everyone.
Most returning visitors agree that the best time to visit Altinkum is in May, June, September and October when the temperatures are perfect in the high 70s or low 80s. The beaches are a little crowded in July and August but they are long beaches so youll always find space. If its sea-swimming you like then September and October are great as the Med is at its warmest then.
Boasting two great beaches, a sea front promenade, terrific night life and a bustling resort centre, Altinkum is, without doubt, a superb location for a memorable summer holiday. The beach offers a range of watersports, from windsurfing to banana boat rides, and, of course, there are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for hire. Theres a great selection of shops, bars and restaurants in the resort and there are also regular bus and dolmus service to local towns and villages in the area.
Altinkum offers a wide selection of places to eat and drink from doner kebab stalls to excellent local and international restaurants. There are also family-run cafes and more up-market bars for the discerning visitor. Theres something for everyone and, a huge plus, its all within easy walking distance.
Altinkum offers a good choice of excursions and sightseeing trips although the two must-see trips are Ephesus, located close to Kusadasi, and the Temple of Apollo at Didim. In addition, you can also visit Pamukkale, Afrodisias, Bodrum and the Didim Aquapark.
Whilst there are many small shops and stalls along Altinkums sea front and in the centre of the resort, theres also great shopping to be had on the shopping trips to Soke and Bodrum. But the best shopping of all is at the local market in Didim, just a short bus ride away. Night life is great and revolves around a wide selection of bars, discos and night spots which will appeal to most tastes.
