Chill out in Cesme
From the historic attractions of Cesme Town to the thermal springs and beaches of the eastern Ilica area, holidays in Cesme offer visitors the best of both worlds. Visit the 14th century castle, take in a concert at the Roman amphitheatre or take a day trip to the fascinating ruins of Erythrai. Shoppers will find plenty of souvenirs and local crafts in the small shops and Sunday market, while the more enthusiastic can take a short bus ride to Izmir and enjoy the huge bazaar. Cesme beach holidays offer plenty of choice too, with the area of Ilica boasting everything from family-friendly beaches to more intimate and secluded bays. Try Altinkum Plaj or Cark Plaj for golden sands and safe waters, while Buyuk Plaj offers swimming in clear waters warmed by the local thermal springs.

Local restaurants around the harbour open until late serving drinks and traditional cuisine, while Inkilas Caddesi is the place to go for traditional live music. For those who like to stay out really late, you'll find many open air discos and clubs along the beaches, particularly at Cark Plaj. With all this just four hours away by plane, it's no wonder cheap holidays to Cesme are becoming a popular choice with those in the know.
