Cem Dinc, our new dynamic mayor has made sweeping changes to make Orhaniye more attractive to guests. He has installed a bay boardwalk reaching all the way from Marti Marina to the Kizkumu beach. More beachfront restaurants have now opened up along this walkway offering a wider choice of food from traditional Turkish to International cuisine.
The cafe at Kizkumu beach and all the rather unsightly jetties have been removed, leaving the area completely natural. All this work is part of the initiative as the bay has been proposed by the Turkish Government as a World Heritage Site.
Over the coming period the Mayor wants to add street lights and make this boardwalk as famous as the one created in nearby Selimiye.
If you visit Orhaniye please make enough time to walk along this new boardwalk. It offers wonderful views over a pristine bay with no ugly developments spoiling the views. You can part your car at the Kizkumu or Marti Mrina ends of the walkway.
