Have you looked across the bay from Karagözler and wondered what the strip of white is that has appeared this season? From a distance, it may look like a beach absolutely packed with sunbeds!

Look more closely and you will see it is actually a white beach

Aksazlar Bay – Leb-i-Derya restaurant

Aksazlar Bay is now in its second year of new management and has undergone many changes and improvements.

Set in a secluded location with beautiful views and surrounded by woodland, Aksazlar Bay is an ideal place for a relaxing day out.

With its beach area (including an accessible area for wheelchair users), shady areas, beach bar, vitamin bar and restaurant that serves snacks as well as la carte meals, there’s something for everyone.

The beach

The first thing that strikes you is the white sand contrasting perfectly with the turquoise of the sea, sunbeds and umbrellas. The sand is made from quartz and contains minerals that absorb negative energy. It also stays cool to the touch up to 25 degrees celsius.

The sand stays cool up to 25 degrees celsius so no ‘hot sand dancing’ – well for most of the time anyway!

A very special beach

Sometimes it’s very difficult, if not impossible, for wheelchair users to enjoy a swim in the sea. At Aksazlar beach that has now become a possibility.

The Accessible beach was fitted by Muğla Metropolitan Mınicipality and is the only one in the Fethiye area.

Aksazlar – the accessible beach

The beach has a trolley and a ramp to enable wheelchair users* to enjoy a swim in the cooling waters.

The arms swivel to allow the wheelchair user to lift themselves onto the trolley which is then pushed down the ramp into the sea.

The facilities also include a changing room, shower room and toilet for people with disabilities.

Pet-friendly

There are plans for a specific beach area to enable people to bring their pets.

Shady areas

If you’re not a sun lover there are plenty of shady areas where you can relax and you’re never too far away from your family or friends who may want a spell in the sun.

There are gazebos dotted around – ideal for families
