  • Address: Bahçelievler 34530 Patara, Patara, Turkey
  • Admission: 5 Turkish Lira
Just outside the ancient Lycian city of Patara, Patara Beach is known as one of the most beautiful on the coast of the Turkish Riviera. At 11 miles long, it is one of the longest beaches in the area. Its soft, white sand and calm blue waters make it a particularly welcoming Mediterranean beach, in an area known for beaches of pebbles and stones.

As it is part of a national park, seasonal wildlife is protected by the Turkish government and can be spotted seasonally. There are many native birds and sea turtles, who come to nest in the sands. At the beach’s easternmost point, there is a scenic rocky cove worth seeking out.

History exists here as the half-buried remains of an ancient Roman amphitheater partially covered by sand. Because of its nearby historic ruins and national park status, the beach area cannot be developed and sees very few tourists. Many archaeological sites can be viewed along the road to the beach.

Practical Info

Patara Beach is located 11 miles west of Kalkan on the Turkish Riviera. There is a small shuttle that runs from the village of Patara to Patara Beach. Open from dusk to dawn, the entrance to the beach area costs 5 Turkish Lira.
