The year 2020 was declared as the Year of Patara by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism. Patara Antill City, 1 km from the beach, is a city with an important place in history. Patara Beach is 43 km from Kas. It has the title of the 1st longest beach in the world, with a coastline of 12 km and a width of 1500 meters. The beach, which consists of fine sand, is also the spawning ground of Caretta Caretta turtles. Therefore, the beach is closed to use except between 8 am and 8 pm. There is a daily facility belonging to Kaş municipality, which provides beach service on the beach. Umbrellas and sunbeds are only placed in front of this place (Umbrella 10 TL, sunbed 10 TL.). Since the beach is a natural protected area, it preserves its virgin air. Since it is an open sea, it has mostly a wavy sea. It is a spot preferred by windsurfers, thanks to its generally non-stop wind. At the same time, Patara is a spot where the sunset is very beautiful. Gelemis Village, which is the closest settlement to Patara Beach, offers various alternatives for those who want to stay close to the beach. To reach the beach, you can use the minibuses that depart from Kaş bus station every 20 minutes in summer. You get off at the crossroads and switch to another service for the 6 km by-road. To reach the beach, you first pass through Gelemis village, where there are many accommodation facilities and cafes, and then Patara Ancient City. The entrance to the beach is paid, 7.5 TL. Those who buy tickets for Patara Antique entrance do not pay a fee at the beach entrance. Patara Sand Dunes In the middle of the beach, the sand dunes behind are worth seeing. Many desert scenes in old Turkish movies were shot here. The view is beautiful especially at sunset. A horse farm in Patara also organizes tours that last 2.5 hours, during which you can ride around the ancient region, the beach and the sand dunes in the morning and evening.
