When you head into Izmir, you might wander why because it's not really a sight seeing place. But don't worry, if you head to the water and walk along the beach you will find a giant statue of Attaturk that looks over a skateboard park! Great place to spend the day, watch some skaters, and have a picnic.

Address:
Just walk down from the ferry terminal.

Price:
Free

Opening Hours:
It's safe until about 10 pm and maybe after, but I don't stay out that late.

How to get there:
Just walk from the ferry terminal to your left when you come out.
