Orhaniye's natural environment, beautiful beaches, calm sea, and amazing landscapes such as pine forests provide an incredible holiday experience. The most spectacular experience at Kizkumu Beach in Orhaniye is walking on the sea! This is a path formed as if there is a sandy wall rising from underwater that divides the bay into two deep parts, and it is one of the remarkable natural wonders to see. This 600-meter-long and 2-3 meter-wide path is located below knee level and you can walk comfortably. Besides that, you can enjoy sunbathing, playing on the beach, swimming in the sea, and pamper yourself with water sports organized by holidaymakers in the area.

There are many valid legends about the Kızkumu Beach. One of the legends tells the story of a princess from Bybassos who fell in love with a fisherman. When the king found out about their relationship, he refused to approve it. One day, the princess was supposed to secretly meet her lover on the beach in this little bay. The king immediately ordered his soldiers to capture both of them and to kill the fisherman if they met again. Once the soldiers followed the princess, chased her, and tried to catch the lovers. However, the princess escaped and hurriedly ran into the sea to save her lover. Wherever she ran, the sea turned into sand and the sandy road turned back into water as the soldiers followed her. One of the soldiers accidentally shot an arrow at the fisherman, but it hit the princess instead. She was immediately covered in blood and died on the spot. Since that day, the road to Kızkumu has remained the same, offering tourists the opportunity to walk through the middle of the sea.
