Golden beaches for those who are looking to relax and the Temples galore for the history fanatics. Voted one of the most popular beach towns in the area.
Didim, an hour’s drive from the city of Aydın, is one of Turkey’s prime holiday destinations. It has a rich cultural heritage, golden beaches, and a coast of intricate coves, each a wonder of nature. The Temple of Apollo in Didim is one of the largest and best-preserved temples of the ancient world. There are few better beaches on the Aegean coast than the beautiful Altınkum, and it’s easy to hop on a boat trip to one of the picturesque coves to enjoy a swim. Fascinating ancient cities and gorgeous natural wonders await you. Didim is not a run-of-the-mill summer resort: the tourist attractions are only the start. The vibrant life of the city continues well after the summer season closes down. Large communities of ex-pat Europeans, especially the British, have settled in Didim, and consequently the shopping centres, market and supermarkets are full of bustling international activity year round.
