Patara Things to Do Holiday Attractions Vacation Activities Tips

The beach….
18km of golden sands backed by the dunes and the Taurus mountains and regularly featured as one of the Mediterranean’s most beautiful and unspoilt beaches. Due to the strict conversation laws there is not a building to be seen, which is what makes this beach so special, endless golden sands, surrounded by nature.The beach is one of the few remaining beaches in the world, where the Loggerhead turtles still come to lay their eggs between May and October, so measures are in place to ensure that it can be enjoyed by holidaymakers and still remain protected for the turtles.The small café on the beach is run by the local village of Patara (Gelemis), giving employment to local young people. Sunbeds and umbrellas are available for hire. Other facilities include shower, toilets and an attractive café area, all designed to be in keeping with the local surroundings. A percentage of the profits goes back into the village community. In 2007 this money was used to renovate the village school. The project has been a great success and in addition to benefiting all 45 children who attend the school, it will also benefit the wider community, as the smart new playground and garden will be available for local weddings.When you arrive on the beach, you can either choose to hire a sunbed and umberella and stay close to all the beach facilities, or alternatively head off to find your own little part of the stunning 18km stretch of golden sands. The beach of Patara is so large that it never feels crowded.

How to get there: It is a beautiful 20 minute walk from the village to the beach, however many of the accommodations provide a complimentary beach service. There is a mini bus service running from the village centre (small charge payable) and taxis are also always available. ‘Beach service’ buses run from the nearby towns of Kalkan and Kas.
