Where to visit/ stay in Turkey? Looking for a Beach holiday

My friend and I (both females in our 20s) are looking for a relaxing beach holiday and we've decided on Turkey. The plan is to spend most of the holiday relaxing and sunbathing on the beach we'd also like to do a few other relaxing activities maybe kayaking or nature walks and visit any ruins.

We don't drink and want to stay FAR AWAY from bars and discos etc so family friendly places would be ideal. We would also like a beach that isn't too busy and one that is sandy. We don't have a car so we'd like a beach that isn't too far to get to and either within walking distance of a place with accommodation or that can be reached using cheap public transport.

We'd also like somewhere close to the airport (max an hour away). As we've never visited Turkey we have no idea where to start.

What beaches and areas would meet our requirements?

Thanks guys!

Hmm. There aren't a lot of sandy beaches in Turkey. I was going to suggest Cirali (Antalya) but the beach isn't sandy.

Dalyan might meet your needs. There's a nice sandy beach, although you have to take a boat or minibus to get there. It's a very relaxing, quiet, chilled out sort of place. While there are some bars, they aren't rowdy and it's easy to avoid them if you want to.

Lara beach in Antalya is sandy albeit course sand. Maybe worth a browse. Lots of AI hotels plus some offering different board options.
