Neighbourhood:

Sleepy and unspoilt, with low mountains hovering on the horizon, a tranquil turquoise sea, and narrow cobbled streets lined with cosy outdoor cafés and restaurants, the charming port town of Alacati offers an idyllic seaside break on the Turkish Aegean coast. Dating back to around the 14th century, the town is an unpretentious place, scattered with ivory‑coloured stone houses and rustic boutique hotels with old wooden doors and pastel-hued window shutters draped with purple and pink bougainvillea.

Largely undiscovered outside Turkey,  Alacati is where many Turks, including several national celebrities, spend their holidays to escape the more touristy scene in Bodrum. It’s also known as one the world’s best windsurfing destinations – the Professional Windsurfing Association (PWA) Windsurfing World Cup is held here in August.

The town is quiet by day when most visitors flock to the sandy beaches around Alacati. They range from lively beach clubs hosting parties and concerts at sunset, to more intimate stretches for families and quiet sun worshippers. All are between one and 10 miles from town, some accessible only by boat. But Alacati comes into its own in the evenings, when its cobbled streets, outdoor cafés, quirky antiques and souvenir shops buzz with locals and tourists.

Others head for the waterfront bars and restaurants in the port and the yacht marina. Designed by the late French architect Francois Spoerry, who also designed the tourist spot Port Grimaud in the Cote d’Azur, it is lined with private yachts docked directly along the back gardens of several traditional Mediterranean homes with terracotta roofs inspiring an old Aegean fishing village atmosphere.
