Alacati Travel Guide: 55 reviews and 217 photos

Located 80 km southwest of Izmir, Alacati is one of the best places to go while traveling Turkey.

The town is originally erected by guest Greek workers from Chios island in 1850 s. After the exchange of Greek-Turkish populations , many Turks from Northern Greece settled there.

Now, Alacati is a wonderful place where you can find the incredible Greek-Turkish mixed culture.

It is a few away from coast ,but also very famous with her Alacati bay among surfers of the world.The bay is like a very big natural pool with strong waves.

Fun Club

Alacati -Cesme area has tons of beaches and clubs..

Fun Club is my favourite. The sea is like tropics..

It is 15 minutes drive from Alacati and located at Altinkum beaches.

Tas Otel

The hotel is one of the best boutique hotels I've ever seen.
An old stone mansion from 1800s was renovated by a tasteful Istanbulian businesswoman who decided to quit her career and settle to Alacati.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:One of the most original Greco-Turkish towns..
  • Cons:None..But better rent a car to enjoy the beaches...
