Çandarlı is a small district of Dikili- İzmir. It is famous for the cold sea water even in the hot summer days. However seaside is so peaceful and we are sure cold water won’t disturb you. Just take your book and lie down on the beach 🙂
Çandarlı has a historical castle which must be seen. It is open on weekdays between 2pm-5pm exept from friday. On Friday it closes at 4.30 pm. Go on top of the castle and do not forget to take some pictures:) If you are searching fore detailed information about the castle, please click here.
In the afternoon we recommend you to visit small restaurants and cafes next to sea side. Interesting thing is that some of the chairs are located literally in the sea. Take off your shoes to feel the sand and the sea and order your drink. We are sure you will enjoy it. This is the perfect place to watch sunset and chill out. Çandarlı is a wind district but cafes are always prepared for the wind with their cosy blankets.
