There is more than enough to keep even the most adventurous of travellers occupied on a visit to Turkey, and singling out one sight as a ‘must-see’ is something of a challenge when there is so much on offer. However, the area of Patara Beach truly cannot be missed when enjoying a holiday sailing Turkey’s seas.

The beach is close to another hotspot, the ancient Lycian city, and here there is plenty to take in for the more curious holiday-maker. Exploring the beautifully preserved architecture and monuments can show you so much about Turkey’s rich cultural past, and they can do something extra: give an unrivalled view of the stunning beauty of Patara Beach.

Stretching the country’s coast for over 11 miles, the beach is widely recognised as the most impressive on what is called the Turkish Riviera. The sand is soft, the sea is sparkling blue and there are many secluded coves just waiting to be discovered. Sitting within the Patara National Park, the beach is beautifully looked after and with good reason – indeed, if you visit during the summer, you might even catch a glimpse of the Loggerhead Turtles who choose Patara as the perfect place to nest.

A true jewel in the crown of Turkey’s coast, Patara Beach offers a sense of relaxing tranquillity that should not be missed when visiting this beautiful country.
