Get out and about

From Altinkum there are many day trips that’ll take you around the local area. IMX Tours run an interesting day trip to the well-preserved Roman Ruins of Ephesus, so you can immerse yourself in ancient Roman culture. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, then a dip in one of the cleansing white calcium thermal pools at Pamukkale could be right up your street.

If you’re looking for some great views and somewhere to watch the sun set you should visit the Temple of Apollo; one of the most popular ruins in Turkey. For those looking for a spectacular family day out, head over to Aqua Fantasy; the largest water park in Turkey. It’s got lots of fun slides for the kids and plenty of sunbeds where adults can relax and unwind under the Turkish sun.

For something to do in the evening, Flying Fish offers a Moonlight Dinner Cruise. It begins at sunset and includes a traditional Turkish meal.
