Incekum’s a real under-the-radar sort of place. This tiny pocket of Turkey is tucked away in a sheltered cove on the Turquoise Coast. Its beach is practically footprint-free, due to bigger resorts in the Antalya region that draw in the tourists. There’s also a handful of gift shops and rustic restaurants, plus your pick of watersports – but otherwise it’s all pretty quiet.
Incekum translates to ‘fine sands’ in English, so it’s a good job this place lives up to its name when it comes to the beach. It’s a top spot for sun-seekers and perfect for families – thanks in no small part to its golden sands and shallow waters. Plus, kayaking, paddle-boarding and jet-skiing are up for grabs if you fancy some watersports.
With only a handful of restaurants and shops in the village centre, nightlife’s pretty scarce in Incekum. Drive south for 30 minutes, however, and you’ll land in Alanya – a lively city where cosmopolitan wine bars rub shoulders with Medieval harbour buildings. It’s popular with partygoers – there are lots of discos, nightclubs and music venues.
