Turkey , officially the Republic of Turkey Turkish: Türkiye Cumhuriyeti , is a transcontinental country located mainly in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan Peninsula in Southeast Europe.

Why Altinkum Turkey

Altinkum means ‘Golden Sands’ and with its beautiful beaches which gently shelve into the inviting turquoise blue Aegean, you will know where it gets it name from. The beaches are ideal for children and non-swimmers as the waters are shallow and clear. There are plenty of water sports, pedalos, banana boat rides and donut rides all at a reasonable price. There are numerous boat trips you can take from the small harbour that runs along the beach front. You can even arrange diving courses and fishing tours. You don’t even have to leave your sun lounger to get refreshments, there are plenty of people who will serve you a soft cold drink, the famous apple tea or even a Nescafe and they will bring it to you. There is also fresh fruit for sale. The shops and bars are a minute away so you can even get hot food (jacket potatoes etc) cold beers and take them onto the beach. This beach is known as the ‘Main Beach’ and can be reached by a 5 – 10 minute walk from our beautiful apartment. There is also a more quieter and secluded beach in the area known as ‘Third Beach’.
