Altinkum has something for everyone. During the day you can relax on one of its three beaches. The main beach is the largest of its beaches and has a promenade of shops, bars, hotels, restaurants and night clubs. The Second beach is to the left of the main beach; this is much smaller but still has its own bars and restaurants. The Third beach is beyond the Luna Park (funfair) and is the smallest; this is a quiet beach with a few restaurants. A $50 million Marina was recently completed in 2009 which also bodes a shopping centre and a luxurious members club complete with fitness centre. There are also plans for a large new golf course nearby.

During the summer season, there is a large selection of water based activities to enjoy. These include; daily boat trips, water sports such as jet skiing, diving courses and fishing tours. There is also a local aqua park that is located just 15 minutes from Altinkum by car.

As the sun sets over the Aegean, Altinkum becomes a hive of activity. There is great selection of waterfront bars which remain open until the small hours. Alternatively for those who prefer a more relaxed atmosphere, equally charming bars and restaurants can easily be located around the resort.

Yesilkent: This is situated to the left of Altinkum. This is a quiet and beautiful area with some of its own very nice beaches. The local bus service also frequently runs out to Yesilkent from Altinkum.
