What to see and do on a Holiday to Altinkum
The name Altinkum actually means ‘golden sand’, which is a pretty good representation of what the resort has to offer. Spend your days on a sun lounger on the wide sandy bay, gazing at the sparkling blue waters of the Aegean Sea, stroll the pleasant pedestrian promenade along the seafront, or head off along the coast to discover quiet coves and refreshing sea breezes.
In the neighbouring town of Didim, you can find one of the most important temple sites of the ancient world. This is the home of the sanctuary of Didyma, where the Temple of Apollo and the oracle were revered by people from far and wide. At one point the site was destroyed by the Persians, only to be built again in all its glory by Alexander the Great. Today, visitors can wander among the ruins to see the majestic temple walls and Ionic pillars, a carved stone relief, and sacred roads.
After a long day of swimming in the ocean and touring historic sites, nothing is better than settling down on a waterfront terrace and digging into a hearty meal. Altinkum offers many places where you can find traditional Turkish food such as mezze, lamb kebabs, and fresh seafood, as well as international favourites like fish and chips, pizzas, pastas and curries. You will also come across many places where you can have some after dinner drinks while watching the latest football matches, belting out karaoke hits, or dancing the night away.
