The region thrives from tourism as most of the settlements along the coast have great beaches (even their names Altinkum, Gumuskum and Sankum refer to the color of the sand there – golden, silver and yellow respectively) but there is also a large agricultural sector active, with the main crops being wheat and cotton.
Most tourists and sailors come here for the great beaches which contrast marvelously with the clear waters of the Aegean and also for the pleasant microclimate which brings hundreds of sunny days and warm winters which allow the practice of watersports even in January. Along the coast, yacht charter sailors will also find numerous peaceful bays which make exploring the region by water extremely pleasant and fun.

The night scene isn’t as lively as some of the English pubs strewn along the main streets would have you believe.
