What shoes are needed for beaches?

We are heading to Turkey for 3 weeks in early Sept. we are from Australia where our beaches are mostly sandy and require no shoes for walking on the beach or swimming. Would welcome any comments on what type of shoes we would need for the beaches and swimming in Turkey (and Croatia). We are travelling by car from Istanbul to Antalya with 4 nights on a gullet. Thanks

In Antalya you will definitely need jelly shoes for the beach. Last time I swam in Antalya my feet were bleeding from the sharp stones there. They sell the shoes at the beach.

And the beaches can get very hot underfoot. The jelly shoes Angela suggests are very cheap.

When I went to Croatia many years ago admittedly shoes were needed for swimming in the sea as there were lots of rocks and urchins. So once bought at least they'll be useful.
