Our apartment is on ouch mevshim cd .(3 seasons road) and we have always called it Bar street . At one time there were seven or eight bars on this road . That's not including hotels .

Just looked up two different maps and both call the beach by the Charlie's second beach , that confirms it for me as the beach was there before the Tuntus was built going by the film on YouTube

I wouldn't rely on the maps here too much
The council change their minds frequently about areas and street names and the maps are not up to date
Take this example , this area has Faruk's bar , a Bim , mini Carrefour , U2 bar , Caspers and yet none of these are on the 2 year old Google maps despite me contacting them 4 times to tell them their map is wrong


The street named as Coban Kuyu Cad on there is WRONG, originally the main route was directly from marina road , just down from U2 bar, but the council then realised that they had a two way road going directly onto a one way lane of a dual carriageway
The road now going between Faruk's bar and the mini Carrefour and down past the playground (our road) is called Imbat Cadessi ..........we have had mail delivered there fine, yet google maps and Yandex won't change the name to the right one , but here maps did , but even they got the entrance road wrong, it's blocked off now and access is via the road between Faruk's and mini Carrefour

We have also always known the beach by Tuntaş as Second Beach, presumably because it was the second beach to be commercialised. Also known Imbat Caddesı as Imbat Caddesı because that's where the road went to.
I have to admit to never hearing the name Bar Street, or Uç Mesvim Caddesı, and all the bar names mentioned seem to change position each year. Where is it?
There is definately a lot of confusion about the name of the town and its areas, according to the land registry the complete municipal area is called Didim (hence the Belediye), the shopping area on Cumhurriet Caddesı on the eastern side of Attaturk Bulvarı is called Yenihisar, and the area by the beach on the south-eastern end of Attaturk Bulvarı is the Altinkum Mahalesi.
I found this out when we lived in Çamlik Mahalesi and didn't get any mail!

Uc Mevsim Cad .......Go past the top of Dolphin square with the shopping centre on your right , get to the t juction past the chinese place and turn right .it is the street in front of you, with the Shooting star bar on the right hand side
It wouldn'r surprise me if the beach was originally called second beach , as I remember the signs going up and there being a lot of confusion afterwards

Just thinking about the bars The bottom one on the right going up was Mercury bar then on the left was Oasis bar then on the right you had Ali Baba restaurant bar, (now shooting star) then next up was chill out bar. straight opposite was a bar which changed it name every year .known as Scooby do, Hosgeldenis ,red bar . And two others at least which I can't remember. Then up past there was Didima cafe bar which was under Grand Didima hotel then cafe S. Then up the top Motown bar now Ambience. And in the hay day of holidays 4U and Gold trail all the hotel bars were also busy Atlantik , meryemana, parmakale . Toros, anfora .

You have a good memory, especially for the Oasis which I think was only open for 1 or 2 seasons, however you missed 1 after the Mercury, on the opposite corner to Shooting Star was Dubs, later to become Paparazzi and now something else I think.

Dubs only lasted 1or 2 seasons as well . Amet is now in sahill and think dubs was a Indian restaurant before it was dubs.

I should really check, I have probably got some old photographs of the Oasis and Chill-out before Ahmet expanded the premises
