Pure Seaside Bliss

The Çesme peninsula comprises the northernmost part of the aptly named Turkish Riviera. Think perfect azure bays, delectable local cuisine and sun-drenched seaside towns enriched by cultural influences from around the region. Now the crowning jewel of the peninsula, the picturesque town of Alacati has undergone a remarkable transformation from undiscovered one-horse village to hip coastal oasis in just a few years.

These days, Alacati’s lazy streets are lined by both traditional stone houses framed by colourful, wooden shutters and a number of top-notch eateries specialising in regional wines, olive oil and local delicacies. Alacati is located perfectly too with easy access to nearby cities Çesme and İzmir, where you’ll have your pick between lounging at the beach and visiting world-class museums.
