This charming little port has all the qualities of a sun held seaside town. You won’t struggle to find space for your towels either as Ayvalik has two of the longest sandy beaches. Sarmi Sakli beach in particular is absolutely gorgeous and resides on the little island of Alibey (Cunda) along with some lovely seafood restaurants. You can also see some amazing panoramic views of this and the archipelago along the Gulf of Ayvalik.
Divers will be happy to know that Ayvalik region of Izmir has also become a popular point of interest with its impressive selection of underwater life, and if you wanted to visit Bergama, which holds many ancient ruins then it’s close enough for a day trip. The generally hospitable and laid back nature of the area will make you feel calm and miles away from any worries.
