“If seeing is believing, then you should see Altinkum – and understand why the term ‘paradise-like’ fits it perfectly!” writes Joan Scanlon, Head of Sales & Operations, Wings Abroad Holidays. “Altinkum is a popular beach resort, located between Kusadasi and Bodrum, and so offers yet another choice and reason to ‘Think Turkey – Choose Altinkum’.
“‘Golden Sand’, which is the literal translation of ‘Altinkum’, along with turquoise blue water, is the main reason it is considered one of the best beaches along the Aegean.
“There are even more reasons to Think Altinkum, including tranquility! Lake Bafa is a haven of tranquility flanked by the Latmos mountains, which in the early morning seem softly pink but becoming purple towards evening – quite stunning.
“Fun times also await your clients in Altinkum. The Aqua Park offers fun for all the family or, for the more energetic, they can try their hand at windsurfing, jet-skiing, or perhaps scuba diving lessons, these and more beach activities await!
“Or step back in time by visiting the Temple of Apollo – a ‘must see’ where 122 columns graced the temple during Roman times, and today they narrate a glorious and fascinating past. St Paul gave public sermons from the Gospel at this very temple.
“Then there is the shopping! Altinkum is packed with souvenir shops, markets, and boutiques selling everything from handbags to designer clothes – practice your bartering skills to get the best bargains.
“As night falls, the happening harbour called Dolphin Square offers numerous bars and clubs. Visit Medusa, an open-air nightclub that is regarded as Altinkum’s busiest nightspot.”
