  • This romantic date begins in the late afternoon. The first stop is the local market where you and your partner can shop for picnic supplies - fruits, cheese, bread, and perhaps even some local sweets.
  • Next, you head towards the beach, agreeing on a comfortable, secluded spot with a great view of the sea. Spread your picnic blanket, lay out your purchases from the market, and perhaps even dip your feet into the water. The beach is usually less crowded at this time, creating a peaceful atmosphere.
  • As the sun begins to dip below the horizon, the sky paints beautiful hues of oranges, pinks, and purples - a perfect romantic backdrop. Enjoy the drama unfolding in the sky while sharing intimate conversations over your picnic treats. The date ends when the sky is enveloped in darkness, leaving only the sound of the waves and the sensation of peace.

Preparation steps:

  • Check the weather forecast and prepare a picnic basket with a blanket, napkins, disposable cutlery, and plates. Remember to bring something to sit on. Opt for easy-to-eat items, ideally those which don't require re-heating. Bring enough to share and fill both of you up.
  • Wear comfortable footwear suitable for beach as you'll be walking on sand. An extra layer of clothing is advisable as it can get chilly after sundown. You might want to bring along a portable music player to set the mood.
  • Don't forget a bag for trash as it's essential to leave no trace behind. Cleaning up after yourselves maintains the beauty of Antalya beach and respects the environment.

Some tips:

  • Choose a secluded spot for greater intimacy during your picnic. Be sure to arrive at the beach before sunset to fully appreciate the changing sky. Pay attention to the tideline while setting up your picnic spot to make sure it won't be washed away.
  • Fruits like grapes, apples, and pears are great for picnics as they're easy to eat and refreshing. Cheese, bread, and local pastries are also good options.
  • Finally, remember the sun cream. Even if it's later in the day, it's still important to protect your skin as the sun can still be strong especially in Antalya.
