Description

iOverlander cannot verify if wild camping is permitted at this location. It is your responsibility to verify local laws or obtain consent before staying the night.

Beach Camping about 3km west of the Ephesos Ruins. Long beach with hard sand. Quiet when we were there but would be packed during high season. Beach is several km long so could escape the crowds who are all in 2WD cars. Pretty quiet at night. Couple of dogs and fishemen visiting but OK

Latest Check-Ins

Very nice, quiet in February, convenient. Police passed a few times but did not bother checking or asking for papers

Nice empty beach. During weekday, off-season. Some quad tours passing by. Some people fishing. Tons of mosquitoes at night. We drove a bit (right hand side) further then the iOverlander spot. Mind the sand.

3 nights in high season at Pamucak beach. On weekends full of Turkish families, but not unpleasant!
But it is not the amount of waste that will be left behind. But on Monday the containers were emptied and the beach was cleaned on Tuesday. After that, order and cleanliness were restored. With 4x4 you can dodge the crowd to the north. But beware: soft sand! All-wheel drive necessary. We were prayed four times in one day by locals to rescue them from the sand.

Big part of this beach are available with big rig without any 4x4, because hard sand.
Some family with their car on the evening, but very quiet for the night. We were 2 overlanders on high season!

You definitely need 4wd to get away from the noisy crowd, for this you need to drive on softer sand.
Warning : LOTS of mosquitoes (in June).

Great place. Beautiful sunset!! Very quiet

If you don't have a 4WD don't drive too far on the Sand - we had to pull a local out who got stuck with his 2WD.
Lovely beach side, there is an ok toilet at the beach cafe.

Free beach camping. Very nice and quiet. Minutes to Ephesus.
