Bodrum holidays

Western Turkey’s golden getaway

The name ‘Altinkum’ translates into English as ‘golden sands’, so you probably already have a reasonable idea of what to expect from this happy suntrap on Turkey’s Aegean coast. The resort’s three main beaches slope gently into the balmy sea. If you arrive early enough to bag a decent sunlounger, you’ll find little reason to move all day, as vendors are happy to bring coffee and snacks directly to wherever you find yourself working on your tan.

For beachgoers with mobility issues, disabled access is a welcome addition. Altinkum holidays are also great fun after the sun goes down – the buzzy restaurants and fun bars around Dolphin Square are there to keep you fed and watered until late, and if anybody wants to keep the party going, there are good options for a late drink and a boogie at an open-air nightclub. So, if you’re looking to chill out by day and live it up by night, holidays to Altinkum in Turkey are a sound choice.
