This region has over 400 miles of calm and sandy beaches – the length of this coastline really means that there is something to suit everyone from secluded coves to large open stretches of sand where you can easily mingle with other sun worshipers. The beach resort of Alanya is one of Turkey’s main holiday resorts and there is a lot of see and do there. There are the obligatory waters sports available in abundance from banana boating to wind surfing. If you get restless after all those hours spent on the beach there are water parks, go kart tracks, or, for a trip to another world visit the Damlatas Cave. Discovered by accident, the Damlatas Cave is renowned for its health benefits. If you fancy getting away from it all whilst on holiday in Antalya take a trip to Cirali where you’ll find their beautiful secluded beach. The Lara Beach Park is affectionately known as the Las Vegas of Turkey full of beautiful beaches, entertainment centres, bars and restaurants.
There is far too much history and culture in Antalya to be able to do it justice here. The resort of Kalkan is a beautiful fishing village. This town was primarily inhabited by the Greeks; this is evidenced by the characteristic white wash houses which lead into the sea. Perge, a former Roman City provides an excellent window into the past of this once thriving city. The ancient Greek city of Side, where Alexandra the Great once lived is home to some fantastic Greek ruins. They are surprisingly well preserved and look fantastic under the warm Mediterranean sun.
Make sure to try some typical Turkish food when on holiday in Antalya. The region is home to some of the best cuisine in Turkey – try the Turkish meatballs Köfte and wash them down with Raki a drink known locally as the Lion’s milk – we’ll let you discover why. If you fancy something a bit easier to drink, the Turks are very proud of their Efes beer and you’ll find this wherever you go when on holidays in Antalya. A holiday to Antalya offers the perfect mix of good food and drink, culture, natural beauty and great beaches.
