For the best beach experiences in any given country it’s wise to follow the locals; and the Turks head to the seaside resort of Ayvalik for their summer holidays. Streets are lined with palm trees and olive groves, while excellent local restaurants serve up the finest Turkish cuisine.

Ayvalik is surrounded by beautiful beaches, but the greatest of them all is Cataltepe. Unspoilt, quiet and with lush Mediterranean views over to the Greek Islands, this is the most relaxing beach location in Turkey. The waters are, naturally, fresh and clear; perfect for swimming and snorkelling.
