Incekum is located halfway along Turkey’s S (Mediterranean) coast, 65 mls E of Antalya airport by generally good coast road. It is on a flat strip of land, very green and used intensively for agriculture, between the S-facing shore and, a few miles inland, steeply rising mountains.

Incekum is primarily an offshoot of the major resort of Alanya, 15 mls to the SE, Incekum is officially categorised as a town with a population of 2,000. It is no more than a badly planned ribbon development following the coastal highway. There is a commercial centre with a range of shops and restaurants but little else.

Some of the better beach hotels are here, and the location suits lazy beach lovers willing to spend more than in neighbouring Alanya. Mainly 3- and 4-star hotels which tend to be well-equipped to encourage holidaymakers to spend as much time (and money) in-house.

The region, bathed in sunshine for 300 days of the year, is a paradise for sunbathing, swimming, and sports activities like wind surfing, water skiing, sailing, mountain climbing and spelunking.
