Altinkum Beach is one of the attractive coasts which is only 10 minutes away from the centre of Cesme. The sand of the beach is just like gold and water is crystal clear. The wind typically blows from the north in Cesme and since Altinkum is on the south side of the peninsula the wind usually blows from the land towards the sea. Therefore, there are always small to medium waves in Altinkum.
