Patara is 14.2 kms/9miles long of child-friendly, sandy beach backed only by a small cluster of (not very exciting) ancient ruins and swooping dunes - with no buildings visible save a small café at one end. Loungers and umbrellas available for rent. No watersports or camping. The area is inexpensive and there's a selection of low-key accommodation in nearby Patara town, with beach commuter transport or a longish walk.

email from Norlin, UK: Patara beach is huge and white sands and fabulous warm sea! There is a small charge for the beds and umbrellas but you don't have to have them. There is good clean facilities for toilets and showering and a bar for drinks and snacks which is not expensive. If you like being on beaches you would not go wrong here. In fact I think you would want to return again and again!
