LikeGorIf you are tired of the bustling city of Istanbul when you come to Turkey, Cesme is a good choice. Ilica Beach here is one of the highlights of Cesme. The blue sea sets off the urban leisure area, which is worth a visit.
LikeGorAlacati is a small town in Cesme. It has a local flavor. The handmade souvenirs and the simple local customs make tourists linger. There is little pollution here, which makes people feel refreshed.
M36***48We visited Alacati almost all morning, the town is not big, and the main streets are especially good for shopping. It is really pleasant to stop and sit in the coffee shop and have a drink and chat. What I like most is the houses inside, the whole is Greek style, the town is beautiful!
Getting There - The nearest big airport is Izmir. From Izmir you can either hire a taxi( expensive) or take a mini bus into ALacati.
Attractions - ALacati is an Instagram haven with unique restaurant, bars, cafes, and shops. Everything is a bit pricier in this region compared to less touristic areas however if your currency is high you won’t think so. remember to bargain when you shop :)
Hotels - I would recommend you to stay a few days at the centre of ALacati in a boutique hotel. there are many bohemian villas converted into hotels.
Food & Restaurants - Turkish food is amazing however there is a great selection of western restaurants where you can find your usual favourite meals.
Shopping - like I mentioned before there is a great selection of shops especially if you are the bohemian type, you will love the accessories and clothes. Don’t forget to bargain!
A seaside town in the Aegean Sea in western Turkey, the architectural style has a strong Greek flavor and is known as the "Little Greece". The blue and white houses line the street, and the bright school flowers bloom on the road. There are a lot of cafes here, and the lazy atmosphere spreads. People always say that when you come to Alacati, Santorini in Greece can no longer go.
Because Santorini is becoming more and more commercialized due to the rapidly increasing number of tourists, Alacati is still a leisure resort town that has not been explored by tourists. There are few Asian faces here.
The sparrow is small and complete, here is a fresh and romantic restaurant, coffee shop, dessert shop, flower shop, handicraft shop, everything is there, two or three are Europeans here to talk about love, slow hand in hand Walking, and street performers are painting. The atmosphere that is filled is romantic and leisurely. The sky is full of blue, pure white, pale purple, let me have the illusion from time to time to go to Greece, want to run, want to shout.
Not far from Alacati (can be reached on foot), there is a beautiful beach called Ilica Beach. It is a holiday beach next to Alacati that is very popular among Turkish natives. The sea is very clear and the sand is very delicate. It is a resort on the Aegean Sea.
You don't have to go to Greece to feel the Mediterranean style town. You must come to Alacati, the favorite place in Turkey for self-driving travel. There are very few Chinese tourists, basically local tourists from Europe and Turkey. The daytime is quiet and serene. Most tourists go to the beach to play. There are only a few tourists left in the town. Taking pictures and drinking tea is very leisurely. At night, the impression of the town is overwhelmed during the day. All the streets are stuffed. Full of tourists, everyone is drinking and chatting on the head, the stalls at the night market are also put out, very lively, I recommend you not to miss this charming town.
