Cesme's Natural Attractions


View larger map: Cesme To See and To Do Map (Cesme.Net)

The first beautiful natural aspect of Cesme that comes to mind is of course Cesme's beaches; the white sands of Ilica, the clear blue sea of Altinkum and Aya Yorgi's incredible views make this first thought accurate. However there is much more to Cesme.

The zig zags of its coves, the pretty hills that allow you to ponder the sea and the views are all over the Cesme area. If you have access to a car, it really is a beautiful drive around the peninsula. Here are some specific destination ideas:

If we put its beach and its beach clubs to one side, the Aya Yorgi bay is superb in terms of the view and natural beauty. The colours are especially incredible in the Spring and the Summer. If you are to get further from Cesme's center, pass through Ilica and on to the area known as Pasa Limani. Or go to the south part of the peninsula to see Alacati and its windsurf paradise, then take a stroll on the sands of Altinkum. Or drive further from Cesme on the old Cesme-Izmir road to enjoy an Aegean breakfast under the pine trees at one of the restaurants. You can also continue the drive to the town of Urla to see its natural and historical attractions.

One of Cesme's most important natural resources is its geothermal springs. The area known as Ilica actually gets its name from these springs. Because of this natural resource and its health benefits, Cesme is now becoming known as a year round destination for health tourism rather than just as a three-month summer resort.

A little ways past Pasa Limani is Sifne. This place is well known for its beautifying mud baths. The hot spring water is between 40-50 degrees Celsius and you can use the municipality's thermal pools and mud baths year round.

If you have a boat or access to one, you can see Cesme's sea and coves from a different perspective. The Dalyan area has an especially pretty coastline. With a boat you can also visit nearby uninhabited Goni Island, also known as Donkey Island because of its main residents. Worth seeing near this island are Karaada and Mavi Koy (Blue Lagoon).

If architecture and history attract you, we suggest you take a closer look at Cesme's center and also the town of Alacati. The 500 year old Cesme Castle and the 480 year old Caravanserai are real historical gems and the streets of Alacati will effectively take you back to the Aegean of 150 years ago. If it's older artifacts that you're searching for, drive about 20 kilometers to Ildir where you'll see remnants of an important Ionian city from almost 3000 years ago and also the beautiful views of its islands.

As day turns to night, take your loved ones and choose a spot on this peninsula with sea views on its three sides to watch a sunset that you will remember forever.
