There is also a very well preserved amphitheatre, stone sarcophagi and town walls.

There is a café where both alcoholic and non alcoholic hot and cold drinks are availableor you can enjoy the fine white sands and have a refreshing dip in the sea. Patara beach is 18 kms long, Turkey’s longest beach. The sand dunes are a couple of hundred metres in width and the sand is very fine without any pebbles. Patara has been nominated as one of the best beaches in the World on many occasions and is a protected National Park due to the fact that the Caretta Caretta Sea Turtles nest here. There are also many types of birds in the surrounding marsh and lake areas.
