Bademli Village is a wonderful place located between İzmir and Ayvalık, neighboring with Lesbos, with a sea as turquoise as Maldives but even cleaner than there. In short, those who say, “We cannot go to the Maldives in this 3-day world, it is very expensive, my brother,” Bademli Village of Dikili district of Izmir has opened its arms.
Although this place has started to become popular recently, it is not yet an Alaçatı, Çeşme or Bodrum. It has a much quieter structure than there and wonderful undiscovered bays. This sweet village, only 20 minutes from Dikili, is surrounded by olive trees. On your way to the sea, you travel through the olive groves. As such, you feel restless before throwing yourself into the cooler waters from the hotter sands.
Of course not only with olive groves. You should also swim in the most beautiful bays of Bademli.
Places to Go to the Sea in Bademli
There are not many places to visit in Bademli Village. Therefore, this part of the Bademli travel guide is “places to swim” instead of “places to visit”.

After reaching the shore carefully by following the rope, there is the hot spring water flowing into a small stone chamber. The water temperature is around 50 degrees, very, very hot.
Küçük Zindancık Koyu
This is a small bay that does not have a beach area and no facilities. You can go to the sea by going down the roads between the houses on the beach. Or if you go on a boat tour, there is definitely a swimming break in Küçük Zindancık Bay. This bay is called a dungeon because it is dark because it never receives the moonlight at night. But the sea is wonderful, turquoise water dominates here as well. Do not swim without your goggles.
If you go by boat tour, the second stop will be Hanımın Bay. The bottom of the sea is sand, turquoise and very clean.
