From Izmir’s city center to the resort town of Çeşme, there are plenty of budget to luxury hotels right on the edge of the Aegean Sea
. We chose our favorites from among the many waterfront accommodations. Just don’t forget to book in advance if you’re planning a summer vacation in Izmir!
More of a cute village home by the beach than a hotel, Çağla
is the perfect place for travelers who like to keep it genuine and down to earth. Located about a minute’s walk from the beach, the clean and simple rooms are just as quaint as the little garden in which breakfasts made from local ingredients are served. Located in the Ildır village of Çeşme, you’ll get plenty of downtime in this idyllic haven right by the Aegean.
