We did not actually go on the beach through our two week stay apart from walking along it at night when it was quiet.
As the photo shows it is very crowded and the sun beds and canopies are very close together - the most densely used beach I have ever see.
In central Icmeler you have to pay to use the beaches but this does give you access to showers and toilets and a sun bed. It is quite cheap but costs do vary.
The sand is soft and a dark brown colour and the sea is clear and appears to be very clean.
Setting off at about 10-30am in the morning,a small group of about 10 of us set off for a pleasant day out to Gypsy Beach not far from Hisaronu.
We travelled along the Datca road,turning off at the Hisaronu sign and threaded our way along the narrow lanes until we arrived at Gypsy Beach.
We arrived at this lovely tranquil beach with beautifull views of the surrounding mountains,and in the far disance we could see the Greek island of Symi.
Our base on the beach was a little restaurent serving the Cub Rena a small holiday complex made up of small wooden chalets.
We had the use of the Club Rena pool and surrounding scatter cushions,as well as the sunbeds and sunshades on the beach.
The day was layed back, everyone enjoying the sun and gentle breeze off the sea.
Lunch was taken at the restaurent,and Ann and myselfe chose chicken on a skewer with pasta and chips with a side salad and of course this was all washed down with a pint of ice cold Efes.
The meal and drinks were all extra to the cost of the trip.
We decided before we all left this idylic place that we would experience the "Sun Setting" behind the distant mountains that Chelsea Boy had told us so much about.
At about 6-50pm we all posistioned ourselves in a place were we thought each of us could get a good picture.
As the sun began to set, everything seemed to go calm, there was hardly any sound except for the waves gently lapping the seashore.
For a short moment everything seemed to standstill,the sky went red,the sea also gave the impression of being "On Fire"
Everyone looked at each other,each wanting this sight never to end.
Who had got the best picture?,
what we all did agree on was that we had all experienced a most beautifull scene.
Boarding our small bus we headed back to Icmeler and within 30mins we were being dropped of at the ICR office.
A remarkable day out and one to remember and all this for just £6 each.
sunshine forever..lovely beach fantastic people..lots of nice place to eat and lots of bar..our favorite bar is champagne steak house bar...fab time...
Although i wasn't to keen on Icmeler i did like the views you get from the beach, icmeler is set in a beautiful bay with pine trees growing on the mountain backdrops
Although Icmeler beach is wider than Marmaris i wouldn't say it was better, it all seems so packed here to me, i don't think i've ever seen so many sun beds on one beach
