With its constantly blowing wind Alaçatı is one of the few wind surf paradises in the world. It is an ideal place to start surfing due to its shallow waters and protected condition. The surf schools located right next to Alaçatı Marina, rent surf equipment and wetsuits besides giving courses. Professional surfers have the opportunity to keep their equipment in storage here throughout the year. If you don’t surf, while your kids or partner do, there are places for sunbathing and cozy cafes on the beach in front of the surf schools. For swimming you can also walk to Çark Beach further ahead. Those who would like to do kite surfing are transferred to the kite area by the team on the other side of the cove. Here they can both get lessons and practice. However, the best place for kite surfing is Pırlanta Beach located on the way to Altınkum.
MYGA Surf Club & School
Founded by Ali Palamutçu, one of the best surfers of Turkey, on a lush land of 3500 square meters; Myga Surf City is Turkey’s most innovative and modern surf center with its modern equipment, wonderful beach, activities like yoga & Pilates besides surf and the surf festival it organizes every year.
Recently opened in 2008, Myga Surf City is the northernmost school, right next to the beginners area. Myga has the largest grass area of all surf schools and the amenities include a large parking lot, a surf hospital that offers first aid (for your gear, not for you), a big surf shop, a kite surf school, a small restaurant/café and lots of storage area.
Due to its northernmost location, Myga Surf City is perfectly suited for beginners as well as advanced surfers. You do not have to carry your board/sail to the beginners area (it is right there by the beach), and seting up your gear on the grass is much more fun than doing it on the beach.
Myga Surf City hosted PWA World Cup series in August 2009 and despite being the newest surf school, it has quickly become the top choice for many surfers.
Myga has everything you might need during the day. And for non-surfers or for when you want to take a break and get some rest, it has sunbeds and big pillows by the beach. For surfers, Myga Surf City offers rentals, surf lessons, and storage facilities.
Myga has over 160 boards and 250 sails available as rentals.
