You’ll find it a couple of kilometres from the far end of Yalikavak’s main beach*. Trees provide sunbeds for hire shade along the water front and you can hire sunbeds for a small fee. The bay is calm and a large area roped off offers safe swimming.

The snack bar sells toasted sandwiches, chips, etc. plus ice-creams and drinks, but the real attraction here is that you can hire a barbecue and cook your own meal. Order it at the snack bar and they’ll deliver it to you a few minutes later with the coals hot and ready forBBQs  for hire at Yalikavak Public Beach cooking.

There is a loo and a small changing room – both pretty basic – and an outdoor washbasin.

The road skirts the bay, past a hotel and down to the water’s edge.
