Legend has it that after God shaped Adam and Eve out of clay, he rubbed his hands clean and the excess clay dropped into the Aegean Sea and became the islands and beaches of this as-beautiful-as-man region.
In English Altinkum means “Golden Sand”. The beaches are magnificent, washed by gentle lapping waters and wrapped around Altinkum Bay – there are two beaches, one on each side of the town.
The resort is quieter than Bodrum and Kusadasi, suitable for families and those hoping for an relaxed beach holiday. Travellers seeking Altinkum flights have a choice of airports to fly into – Bodrum or Izmir.
