Voyage to Cesme, a surfer's paradise
The seaside resort town of Cesme is not only a popular destination for Turkish and tourists alike, but also for surfers, who come from all over the world to surf, windsurf, kite-surf…the list goes on. (Perhaps it’s the golden-sand beaches like Ilica Beach, warm sapphire waters, and laid-back atmosphere that have something to do with the allure.)
For more land-based treasures, however, there’s the 16th century Cesme Castle that dominates the city center and offers wonderful views of Cesme and the surrounding area, the Greek neo-classical buildings of the Old City, and the restaurants and shops of Cesme Marina. And if you like, you can even visit a Greek island for a day, with Chios just an hour away by frequent ferry service.
