Cheap flights to Antalya
Antalya is not only one of Europe’s best-kept secrets, but the perfect destination for anyone wanting a holiday to remember. And any trip to this two thousand year old city and its beautiful surrounding area and it’ll not take you long to see why.
Not only is Antalya a busy working city with every amenity you could wish for, but it is also a premier beach resort town catering for all kinds of tourists. Oh, and because it is part of the Turkish Riviera it has some of Europe’s best beaches with clear, turquoise waters. To top it all off you can also be assured of great weather all year round.
High-wire adventure, paint-balling fun or just lazing in the shadow of the pine trees after a picnic at Anadolu Park makes a great change from the beach. Just 10km from the city, it promises to be a fab day out (Aksu Ç?k???, Aksu).
See the dolphins at Aqualand, which has shows twice daily, and should not be missed if you have kids in tow. You can even give the nippers a chance to swim and have their photo taken with the dolphins (Konyaalt? Korulu?u Yan?, antalya-aquapark.com).
Forgotten your holiday reading material? The Owl Bookshop stocks a large selection of used books. Feel free to take along any unwanted books you've finished with, too (Barbaros Mahallesi, 9 Kocatepe Sokak, Kaleiçi).
The ancient ruins of Phaselis, with its three harbours, are 56km south-west of Antalya, and are stunning. Take your swimming gear and swim in the shadow of the ancients!
Situated 16km east of Antalya are the splendid ruins of Perge, which is thought to have been founded by survivors of the Trojan War.
