the main beach at olu deniz you can take your own stuff and same at national park. but the private beach's (billy, seahorse, sugar beach on lagoon) give you free rides and I think (although could be wrong) you are expected to eat there or at least not eat your own. the private beach's all have kayaks for rent. I think the main one has too. gemlir beach is just past ghost village I have heard much quieter and you can take your own stuff again not sure if stuffs for rent

The far left sides of the main (Belcekiz) beach are quiet even in peak weeks.

Of course you can take your own drinks etc - but consider there are now three beach bars on the main beach who all sell very cold drinks at quite reasonable cost. In July a large can of cold Tuborg Gold was 8 lira (about £2.20). For that you can also sit on the bean bags or on the decked areas. Not a bad deal - or place to enjoy one, or two ....hic...

We visited Billy's beach. They provide free transport and you don't have to pay an entrance fee. Loungers and parasols available to hire (we paid £12 for 4 loungers and 2 parasols). We did take some crisps and sweets for the kids but bought lunch and ice creams as well as water there. The bottled water is slightly more expensive than the supermarkets but worth it as it's cold!
