Have You Ever Visited Alacati? Discover This Gem Of Western Turkey

Have you ever been to Turkey? Well, Alacati is a good choice for a joyful vacation if you decide to visit Turkey in the summer. This small town is a real gem as it combines beautiful surroundings like a fairytale, vibrant nightlife, and exceptional beaches.

Before visiting Alacati, you can arrive by airplane at Smirni, which is also a very beautiful town to have a quick look at. Then, you can rent a car or take the bus to Cesme. Alacati is at Cesme, and for sure, it is not difficult to find as everyone knows this small town that is full of life.

I visited Alacati some years ago. I felt like I was in Plaka, Athens. I think that these two places have much in common. Here the houses are small and are made of stone. The doors and the windows are painted with vibrant colors, while the blooming flowers in the courtyards and cobbled streets add much more color to the region. On the streets, you will find many restaurants, cafes, art galleries, and tourist shops. This place attracts many visitors, and you will find it hard to walk on the streets because of the crowd. Most restaurants have live traditional Turkish music. At the end of the day, all the people come closer, singing altogether, laughing, and dancing. The atmosphere is incredible. I can’t describe it to you exactly. I think that someone must travel there in order to feel it.

Alacati is all that beautiful, relaxed, festive atmosphere that makes it unforgettable. Of course, the unique beaches near Alacati make it more attractive. The most famous of all is Ilica Beach. The sand has a golden color, and the water is clean and warm. It is a long beach with a wide shore and shallow water that is ideal for children. Also, there are many places to eat, sunbeds, and umbrellas. It is one of the most crowded beaches in Cesme, so be prepared for the fuss. Ilıca owes its popularity to the hot thermal springs flowing from the shallow seabed.

Delikli Koyu is another option. It is a popular beach for camping in a cove with pebbles and white rock formations in the background. This beach is not as crowded as the other beaches in the area. The water is clean and quiet, and the nature is stunning. Also, the view from the top is amazing. Because of the fact that it is a secluded beach, it is better to have some chairs and perhaps an umbrella for shade with you.

Zio Beach is also an attraction for many visitors in the region. It is part of Hotel Cocos The Club Solto, but non-residents of the hotel are also welcome. However, they have to pay an entrance fee. There is also a bar there where you can buy something to eat or drink. The beach is usually busy but not full-packed like, for example, Ilica Beach.
