  • Have your ears or eyes ever perceived the existence of the ancient city of Patara? Well, even if they haven’t, it is vital to understand that Patara Beach owes its non-commercialisation to its magnificent ruins. Officially designated the longest beach-stretch in Turkey, it manages to achieve a maximum length of about 17.5 kilometres. Renowned for its endangered Loggerhead turtles (a species that has been known to lay its eggs there for the past 40 million years), it is not only an inviting sandy shore but also an excellent place for snorkelling and diving. Waves there are low and rip currents are virtually unheard of. It is perfectly safe for swimming and even for things as seemingly trivial (but intricate) as sandcastle-building. Fine-fine, jokes aside, this is about as natural as one can get in terms of seashores in Turkey – there is nothing manmade there except for a miniature café (which is awesome, by the way).
