Cesme Guide

The coastal town and port of Cesme is located in the west of Izmir in Turkey. The town's name is derived from the Turkish for 'fountain' and is perhaps a reference to the many springs in the area during the 18th and 19th centuries. It's clean beaches, crystal clear waters, lovely restaurants and pleasant climate all combine to make Cesme one of the most popular holiday resorts in Turkey.

Located in the centre of the town is the Genoese fortress that dates back to the 14th century and which was later restored by the Ottomans in the 16th century. Adjacent to the fortress is the Caravanserai which was constructed by Suleyman the Magnificent in the 16th century and which was later converted to a hotel during the restoration of Hagios Haralambous Church as the Amir Caka Art Gallery in the 19th century.

Visitors to the town can take a boat trip to visit the many islands around Cesme. For night owls, the town has many discos, bars and cafes to enjoy.
