Nice, pretty, low rise resort. The old town has the usual shops, cafes and restaurants. Very popular with Turkish people (we were literally the only Brits in the hotel!) which means prices are much more reasonable than the traditional tourist places.

Cesme is a pretty town with the castle and lovely harbour.

Cesme is one of the best areas in Turkey. The position of the hotel is excellent and the interior of the rooms was ok. I can't tell the same for the exterior facades, corridors etc which do need restoration works.

Lovely resort with more Turkish than usual - this was a good thing as no noisy bars and British yobs! Nice quality, quiet boat trips around the islands, very chilled and relaxing. Restaurants very good with lots of Turkish food and international choices.

As we were driving there, it's great that there is a motorway almost all the way there. Beaches were great, with great views of Greek islands. Although we were ok, would imagine it gets a little windy there at times. Will certainly be going again, probably to couple with a trip on the ferry across to Italy from Cesme.

To be honest, we didn't have time to explore Cesme itself, so only got a quick impression from driving through it. But we did see more of Ciftlikkoy, a village about 8kms from Cesme, and that was a delight, loads of character, quaint old streets etc. And a host of fish restaurants on the front overlooking the sea.

Beaches

Ilica Beach is a long sandy beach on the northern coast of the Cesme peninsula and, on a still day, has warm and calm shallow waters which are ideal for families and children. A little further along the coast is Alacati Beach which is nearly always windy and very popular with windsurfers. These beaches are approx 5-8km south east of Cesme town.

Pirlanta Beach, on the western coast of the Cesme peninsular is quite wild and remote but popular for kiteboarding. On the south coast of the peninsular you will find the long golden sands of Altinkum Beach and, in the shelter of the bay near the marina, the family friendly Cark Plaj beach. In the town of Cesme itself, there is a small beach at the northern end of the promenade.

Things to Do

Visit Cesme Kalesi in Cesme town centre, just a few steps back from the water front. The castle dates back to the 16th century and you can browse the exhibits in the tower museum or just admire the views from the battlements.

Chill out on a traditional wooden gulet sailing around the local islands and enjoy a spot of secluded swimming and snorkelling. Spend a day on the Greek Island of Chios; the ferry runs from Cesme harbour most days during the high season and the crossing take approx 50 minutes.

Take the kids to Aqua Toy City aqua park. Set inlarge grounds it has pools with colourful slides, play equipment and inflatables; lawned sunbathing areas and a restaurant. It is located on the waterfront at Ilica and is open from mid June to mid September.

Out and About

The main shopping street in Cesme town centre is pedestrianised and there are many bars and cafes to choose from around the main square. Designer boutiques and chic restaurants can be found in and around Cesme Marina, which has berths for hundreds of yachts.

Ilici is well served as a beach resort with plenty of shops, bars and restaurants behind the beach area. Alacati is an expanding resort but retains a fair amount of charm from its former days as a farming village of stone houses and stone paved streets.

The area doesn't have a frenzied nightlife but there are some good beach clubs for partying after midnight. The weekly markets are held on Sundays in Cesme town and on Saturdays in Alacati.

Nearby Attractions

The large and historic city of Izmir (90km) is approx 90 minutes drive by car or, alternative there is a regular bus service between the Cesme peninsular and Izmir.
