Altinkum is a friendly family resort with many visitors returning year after year. The local people are friendly and love the English tourists.

Altinkum means 'Golden Sands' and with its beautiful beaches which gently shelve into the inviting turquoise blue Aegean, you will know where it gets it name from. The beaches are ideal for children and non-swimmers as the waters are shallow and clear. There are plenty of water sports, pedalos, banana boat rides and donut rides all at a reasonable price. There are numerous boat trips you can take from the small harbour that runs along the beach front. You can even arrange diving courses and fishing tours. You don?t even have to leave your sun lounger to get refreshments, there are plenty of people who will serve you a soft cold drink, the famous apple tea or even a Nescafe and they will bring it to you. There is also fresh fruit for sale. The shops and bars are a minute away so you can even get hot food (jacket potatoes etc) cold beers and take them onto the beach. This beach is known as the 'Main Beach' and can be reached by a 5 ? 10 minute walk from our beautiful apartment.
There is also a more quieter and secluded beach in the area known as 'Third Beach'. This can be reached by a 5?10 minute walk from the apartment. It is smaller than main beach and is very peaceful. There are lots of water sports, banana boats etc., there are three bars/restaurants who will bring your drinks etc., to your sun lounger so no need for you to move. They will even take you home at the end of the day as they all provide a free mini bus service. You can also arrange for them to pick you up the following morning to take you to the beach at no charge. Some say that this beach is one of the best in Altinkum.
The holiday resort of Altinkum has also been recommended by World Health Council because of its lovely climate, low rate of humidity and lovely sand. Altinkum is also a good place to visit for those suffering from asthma.
