Re: question on altinkum seafront.

Its been derelict for many years and is in a prime position,not sure what it was but may have been a school or something.Someone will probably come along and have the answer, but in 6 years I can't remember it ever being used although we once saw a Turkish man within the gate who was feeding about 5 dogs. jewel x

Re: question on altinkum seafront.

Hi ,we have just come back from Altinkham this week and we also wonder what it was. We did however see a turkish man walking round ,,but agree it could be really lovely if someone refurbished it .

Re: question on altinkum seafront.

A lot of these places were sold off back in the 90's- my husband used to run one at Mavişehir before he retired- half of that was sold and is now Club Tarhan Holiday Village.

The one on Altınkum seafront was also sold but there was some problems and it's still going thru court,I was told.

The new Palm Wings Hotel is an old govt holiday camp- as is the new hotel at Sağtur and the new holiday village that's going up in Yesilkent by the Police Academy

Re: question on altinkum seafront.

I'm sure I saw kids with little blue dresses on when I first went to Altinkum playing in the grounds. That was nearly 6 years ago.

My upstairs neighbour said it was a place to learn them to become business people. She was serious.
