Geography of Alacati


Alacati was structured to reflect its surrounding geography. Our district is a beautiful town that is constructed in western Turkey on the end of the peninsula that bears its name with its three sides surrounded by the sea. Cesme is surrounded by Urla District in the east, Aegean Sea in the south and west, Karaburun District in the north, and it is 80 km away from Izmir and 8 miles away from the Chios island Greece.

According to the cadastral data, the coastal coastline length of our district is 133 km.

The fact that in Cesme, which is under the influence of the Mediterranean climate, the mountains are perpendicular to the sea, like other Aegean coasts, has created the natural beauties that are the always valid commodity of tourism. The land is usually covered with stony and rocky hills, among them there are also small ovacas, consisting of very few plains. The land is mostly inclined. The forest is small and in bad condition. Constantly flowing streams are not available. The soil structure is gravelly, sandy, calcareous, and in some regions the loamy and calcareous surface is poor. There are no underground and aboveground energy sources.
