BeachesDuring summer weekends both Belcekiz beach, which is mostly popular with foreigners, and the inlet beach mostly used by Turks, becomes jam- packed and at these times its recommended to use the quieter Kıdrak beach, east of Belcekiz, less commercialised and much cleaner.
Villages NearbySlightly inland, south of Kidrak are the headlands of the Yediburun (Seven Capes) and a number of isolated villages.
