This traditional Turkish resort has character and charm in abundance with its stone buildings and vistas across the clear blue Aegean Sea. Tucked away on the southern coast of the Cesme Peninsula, the charming resort of Alacati is full of character and is now attracting a steady stream of international visitors. With an alluring combination of Greek chic, lively markets, excellent beaches and impressive history is it easy to see why.
Alacati is set ten minutes by road inland and its tightly packed stone buildings house swish boutiques and upmarket eateries. Browse the lively Saturday market and indulge in a spot of people watching at a cafe with a glass of refreshing homemade lemonade with mint, known locally as limonata.
The beach in Alacati itself is rugged and sandy, the prevailing windy conditions here making it perfect for a range of water sports and the inviting turquoise water and gently sloping access are perfect for swimmers too.
Owing to the peninsula setting, there are plenty of other beaches within easy reach of Alacati, including the exclusive beach clubs of Aya Yorgi and the warm thermal waters of Ilica, which is famed for its therapeutic hot springs.
