Secret Seaside Alacati Turkey


Largely undiscovered Alacati is where many Turks, including national celebrities, spend their holidays to escape the more touristy scene in Bodrum.

The town is quiet by day when most visitors flock to the sandy beaches around Alacati but comes alive in the evenings, when its cobbled streets, outdoor cafés, antiques and souvenir shops buzz with locals and tourists.

Alaçatı is one of the most traditional towns in Turkey with stone houses, narrow streets, boutique hotels and restaurants with tables on the Streets.
