Beautiful beach, uncrowded, clean and peaceful. Good supply of sun loungers and umbrellas. Gorgeous sandy beach and good swimming. Sand dunes worth the climb to see the view. Great little beach cafe and good toilet and shower facilities. The little man selling fresh cooked corn on the cob is a must also.
This region has been the subject of many rulers, nations and peoples and there are so many layers visible here in Patara and the wealth of other ancient cities along this coast. It is worth reading up on this before you arrive. Although described as "Ruins" in fact many building clearly show their purpose. The Amphitheater is an excellent example,... 更多

First visited here around 1991 and it is amazing to realise how much the site has changed as more has been excavated. And the reconstruction of the Lycian League building is fascinating. Don't miss it. well worth a few hours and there is a half decent beach half a mile away.
These ruins are spread over quite a distance (more noticeable in the summer heat), but it was amazing to walk through history. There were barely any other people there when we went. The entrance fee was cheap by UK standards.
