Didim and still, the heart of Didim and still, the heart of Didim tourism beat there.
BEACHES OF DIDIM – Didim has a coastal line of 55 kilometers, suitable for swimming at every single spot. This fascinating land embracing the Agean, with its unique climate and almost no humidity has always been an attraction for people to live in throughout the centuries.
Frequenters of the Agean meet with the crystal clear waters in the dozens of bays of this coast full of secret beauties. Holiday in Didim is equivalent to sand and sea.
APOLLON TEMPLE – At the heart of the Didim peninsula is the radiant temple, named after the god of light Apollo. According to mythology, God Apollo comes across the shepherdBranchus in Didyma and bestows him the power of prophecy. Branches establish the first shrine in the name of Apollo at the spot of sacred spring, which still can be seen today. The Apollo Temple was administered for many years by the family of Branchidae, Descendents of Branches.
