Once a sleepy fishing village, Özdere beach stretches for miles along an unspoilt coast, lined with soft, white sand. In the evenings, the fresh flavours of Turkish cuisine, permeates the night air. Beachside restaurants are abundant, offering unencumbered views of the dusk sky, splashed with the orange and pink hues of a Mediterranean sunset.
Two hours ahead of London time (GMT+2), a short 3 hour and 15 minute flight will take you from London to Adnan Menderes International Airport, located 45 km from Ozdere. Direct flights are available fairly frequently. Resting on the Aegean coast, Özdere has a distinctive Mediterranean climate, whose hot summers and mild winters are perfect for travel all year round. Renting a scooter is an ideal way to explore this coastal region, offering the best views of the ocean. Rental cars and local buses are also available to travellers on Özdere holidays.
Swimming, snorkelling and sailing fill one's days of this peaceful beach resort. The shallow, calm waters of Özdere beach are ideal for young children eager to spend hours splashing around in the ocean before retreating to the shore to build sandcastles. A boat trip across the Aegean Sea will take travellers to the Greek island of Samos.
Treasures both ancient and contemporary are waiting to be discovered in Özdere. One of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Temple of Artemis, can be found at Ephesus, the site of the largest collection of Roman ruins in the eastern Mediterranean. For more contemporary finds, a bustling market comes to life each Saturday, selling an assortment of aromatic spices, fresh fish, fruit, vegetables, jewelry and hand-made pottery.
