Cesme Holidays

Cesme Holidays – Wonderful beach holidays and superb weather!

Cesme holidays whisk you away to the gorgeous Cesme peninsula in Turkey, just 53 miles due west of busy Izmir, not far from Foca and famous for its endless stretches of beautiful pale sand. The resort offers plenty of water sports, boat trips along the coast and to nearby islands including ferries to the Greek island of Chios. There’s plenty to keep history lovers interested too, with the 14th century Genoese fortress in the resort’s centre serving as a dramatic reminder of the region’s fascinating past.

The town is home to numerous excellent fish restaurants and the beach at Altinkum, a stone’s throw away, is one of the best in the area. Cesme means ‘fountain’ and probably refers to the lovely ancient Ottoman fountains scattered throughout the city. The fabulous sands and clear, clean seas, quiet natural bays, secret coves, thermal springs and great facilities make Cesme a particularly popular destination with older people, couples and families.
