Çeşme is a coastal town and administrative centre of a district of the same name in the westernmost end of Turkey, on a promontory on the tip of peninsula which also carries the Cesme name and which extends inland to form a whole with wider Karaburun Peninsula. Çeşme is a popular holiday resort and district center, where 2/3 of the district population is concentrated. Çeşme is situated 85 km west of İzmir, the biggest metropolitan center in the Aegean Region of Turkey. There is a 6-lane highway connecting the 2 cities (Otoyol 32). Cesme district has a pair of neighboring districts, Urla to the east and Karaburun to the north, both of which are part of İzmir Province. The name "Çeşme" means "fountain". It possibly draws reference from the numerous Ottoman fountains scattered across the town.
Cesme is known as the kite-surfing and windsurfing capital of Turkey, and the world's 3rd best surfing resort. Especially Alacati provides the ideal location for surfing - this is where all surfing schools are located and Surf Festivals take place in Alacati annually. Alacati is unique as the depth of water does not go deeper than 1m for over 700m off shore and the area receives hard winds.
