Overview of Altinkum

Altinkum is a modern resort town on the Bodrum Peninsula, located on Turkey’s south-west coast. The area boasts chilled out coastal villages and spectacular scenery, with year-round sunshine and Blue Flag beaches drawing in holidaymakers year after year. Altinkum is a peaceful base from which you can explore all of Bodrum’s treasures, from historical ruins and charming markets to its wide selection of lively bars and local eateries serving delicious food made with locally sourced ingredients.

Things to do in Altinkum

Altinkum is the perfect place to take it easy. Rent a lounger and enjoy the golden sands of Altinkum Beach for the day, or grab your snorkel and explore the secluded coves of Altinkum bay. You’ll find plenty of upmarket restaurants and traditional Turkish food in the area, along with the occasional open-air market selling fresh fruit and vegetables. For a taste of Bodrum’s history, head to the ancient religious centre of Didim, which is a 15-minute drive from the Venosa Beach Resort and Spa. Didim is home to the ruins of the Temple of Apollo, built as a place to worship and make sacrifices to the ancient Greek gods, and the remaining columns and walls have maintained an air of mystery. For holidays to Turkey that offer a great combination of relaxation and adventure, Altinkum is a great choice. Make the most of the warm weather and beautiful beaches, and enjoy all that this laid-back part of Bodrum has to offer.

With an estimated 12 hours of sunshine a day and plenty of activities to keep all ages occupied, it’s no surprise that Altinkum is so popular with families. Only 75 minutes away from the airport and close to the ancient ruins at Didim, Altinkum is both a convenient and idyllic destination to choose for cheap Bodrum holidays.

Transport links between Altinkum and the surrounding region are good. You can either use the efficient local bus service, or take a taxi – just be sure to agree on a fare before you set foot in the cab.

Vibrant bars and nightclubs can all be found in Altinkum’s Dolphin Square, and the town’s fantastic three beaches, somewhat unimaginatively called First, Second and Third beach, are wonderful for watersports, dolphin-spotting, or simply sunbathing, people watching and relaxing.
