For massive dedicated beach resorts try the Mediterranean beaches like pebbly Konyaalti Beach in Antalya.
Antalya is a modern city on the Mediterranean coast, with a small historic center, a superb archeological museum, several lengthy and well sorted beaches, a variety of decent hotels, a busy international airport, panoramic mountain and sea views and plenty of things to do nearby, such as visiting the pretty but busy Duden Waterfalls (no swimming!) or the ancient Roman site of Perge (wear shoes, not flip flops!) or rafting in Koprulu Canyon.
The only sand in Antalya is Lara Beach.
Further east still are Alanya's sandy strands such as Cleopatra beach...
Alanya is a huge town stretching several miles along the coast and to the mountains behind. It has several excellent sandy beaches with facilities which cater for most needs. The coastal strip is very touristy, lined with hotels, restaurants and shops, giving way to residential areas behind. Alanya has something for everyone except those seeking style or solitude.
