If you want to enjoy an unparalleled swimming experience where green meets blue, give an ear to our suggestions below. Here are the bays you must visit on the Aegean coasts!
Çakılyalı Bay, İnceyalı Bay, Hurma Beach Bay
The sea is full of stones in these bays in Mazıköy, which is one of the most beautiful places in Bodrum. Thanks to abundant trees, you don’t even realize that you are approaching the sea. This arouses a great feeling in you. Çakılyalı, İnceyalı and Hurma Beach bays are located at the crossroads in Mazıköy. There are a few guest houses and campsites in Çakılyalı Bay. There are fewer facilities at İnceyalı and Hurma Beach bays, which are bigger than Çakılyalı. And all three bays are very peaceful!
Surrounded by red pine trees, Kabak Bay, which is on the Lycian Way, is one of the most beautiful bays of the Aegean region with its heavenly look. Having a rare geological structure, this bay is surrounded by steep slopes. You can’t help but enjoy the spotlessly clean sea and every shade of green when you come to this place adorned with colorful flowers!
Dolungaz Bay is a turquoise bay in Karaburun, Izmir. Absence of sunbeds and scarce sunbathing spots have allowed this bay to remain untouched. There is a campsite at the entrance to the bay. You can get food and drinks from the campsite even though you are not staying there. Remember that the way to this bay with a pristine sea is a bit rough!
Cennet Bay is a crystal blue bay in Göltürkbükü which is at the conjunction of Gölköy and Türkbükü. The bay is generally secluded even though it can be crowded at some weekends. Sometimes it can also be windy. You can both have a picnic in the shade of a tree and enjoy swimming.
Cleopatra Bay, which is in Alaçatı, has a very cold sea compared to nearby beaches. Famous for its golden sands, this bay also stands out for its clear sea. There are no stores in the region. So, it’s better to bring your own food and drinks.
Lindos Bay is located on the side of Hisarönü Gulf in Datça. As one of the heavenly bays of Datça, the bay stretches from the borders of Marmaris. You can reach Lindos Bay by following the road right across the earth road to Çatı Bay. You’ll arrive at the bay after walking 1.5-2 km. Swimming in this bay surrounded by pine trees is matchless!
Karaincir Bay in Akyarlar, Bodrum draws attention with its calm and spotless sea. Standing out with its sea slightly colder than normal, the bay is free of algae and garbage! On the other hand, this place is perfect for you if you like shallow seas. Because the sea remains below the knee level for a reasonable distance.
Delikli Bay in Alaçatı is 5 km from Cleopatra. What’s interesting about this bay is that the rocks have holes as a consequence of erosion by waves. Therefore the bay has an attention-grabbing view. Although it has become popular lately when a few celebrities visited the bay, it is still unknown to many.
Located 30 km distance from Datça, Aktur Bays are comprised of Kurucabük, Kovanlık and Çiflik Bays. The sea of these blue flag beaches is dominated by a mixture of sand and pebbles. Here you can find accommodation facilities as well as camping facilities. Çiftlik Bay and Kovanlık Bay are divided by Adatepe.
The Bencik Bay of Marmaris is the most narrow spot in the peninsula splitting the Gulf of Gökova and Hisarönü Gulf. There are no accommodation facilities at a close distance to the bay. That’s why the bay is extremely clean and still undiscovered by many people. Cruise ships rarely stop by this bay.
