Izmir, which is a well-known city, has 66 beaches and three marinas designated with the blue flag in 2021. Izmir is located in Turkey’s southern Aegean region, known as the sunshine city of our nation with its 629 kilometers of coastline. In Izmir and its resort towns, the sun shines in the ideal brightness, the wind blows in the perfect knot, and the sand is at its most comfortable temperature. Of course, as you would expect from a metropolis on this coastline, Izmir offers magnificent views of both sea and sky.
Izmir, Turkey’s third-largest city, is a popular vacation spot with beautiful seaside towns such as Cesme, Foca, Dikili, Urla, Gumuldur, Karaburun, Menderes, Selcuk and Seferihisar. These beach resort cities are conveniently linked to Izmir’s downtown area and offer some of the best blue flag beaches in the region.
