Trip Planner: Europe / Turkey / Turkish Aegean Coast / Izmir Province / Cesme / Ilica Plaji
Float in the clear blue water and sink your toes into the soft, white sand of Ilica Plaji. Relax in a lounge chair under an umbrella after swimming in the warm water, which is heated by the thermal hot springs under the seabed. Restrooms and showers are available for a fee, and beach and watersport equipment can be rented, although you can also bring your own equipment to the beach. Nearby parking is available, but this popular beach gets crowded quickly, so parking can often be difficult to find. Be sure to bring warm clothing, as the beach is known to be windy throughout the year. Put Ilica Plaji on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Cesme online sightseeing planner.

Beautiful beach, 10 minutes by minibus from Central Alacati. Charge only 11 Turkish Lira (0.50 GBP) each way. Easy to access and bar/restaurants close by, plenty selling seafood.

Beautiful and clean public beach. Lots of space to find a good spot. Water is so clear and even end of September still OK temperature wise. There are cabins where you can change and even open showers to wash off the sand. Toilets are there but might be hard to look at... Nevertheless for a public and free beach extremely pleasant.
The beach is lovely. The water is very clear and warm, sand is soft. Parking nearby. The facilities are poor, though. The bathrooms are disgusting. Only three changing cabins that are dirty, with no hooks to hang clothing.
This beach was just so lovely.Perfect for sunbathing,perfect for little children it was shallows for quite a while and not rough waves.The water is just so clear and beautiful.loved the shower/bathroom facilities so convenient.A great beach ,definitely recommend.
I visited Ilıca beach in June, the most striking thing was the waste of the luxurious hotel that they are building on the first line of the beach. There was cement and wood as well as sharp objects all around. We visited the beach in the morning around 11 o’clock and it was obvious that no cleaning is done daily nor was there any cleaning personal, or any security. There was not even one rubbish bin. People throw all the rubbish along the beach and the municipality doesn’t even bother to place bins to avoid this problem. As a foreigner it seemed such an abuse of natural beauty and it is no wonder that I cannot recommend such a place or talk good things about Çesme abroad. In the pictures you can also see dead seagulls, which most probably had to eat the plastic waste that the people dumped on the beach and there was not only one. While walking along the beach we saw several dead animals on the shore. It is such a shame on part of Çesme municipality and I will send these photos to higher authorities.
The water is brilliant, but rhe sand is hell, full of ciggarette, used bottles, packages. Very sad that people are not trying to keep it clean, also on the other hand there are no gabbage bins until you leave the beach.
