Bitez Beach

Bitez is a delightful small resort set in a sweeping bay, and is very popular for keen windsurfers and other lovers of water sports. Bitez is ideal for families with small children due to its shallow waters.

The seafront promenade is lined with a great selection of restaurants and small shops selling local arts & crafts and everything a holiday maker would need.


Beyond the seafront, extensive mandarin and olive groves, criss-crossed with footpaths along dry river beds, lead inland to Bitez village where a more traditional rural life continues.

Exploring these river beds you will no doubt stumble upon local villages tending their fields and animals. There is an old church situated towards the Bitez village that has a wonderful dolphin mosaic.

For the lovers of windsurfing Bitez Beach is perfect as there are gentle breezes for the learners in the mornings, followed by wild winds for the experts in the afternoons.

Bitez recently became a self governing local council (Belediye) and the new council swiftly brought in a wide range of positive improvements to the area. If you've been here before you'll be amazed at the changes.
