Your guide to Antalya holidays
Home to Hadrian's Gate, Konyaalti Beach, and the Perge ancient cities of Aspendos and Termessos, Antalya is certainly a destination in its own right. Described as the ‘Gateway to the Turkish Riviera’, the stunning capital boasts a prime position on the Turkish Mediterranean coast. Due to its privileged position close to the ocean and the Taurus Mountains, there are heaps of activities for you to enjoy when on holiday in Antalya.
A day spent uncovering landmarks, a Roman harbour, and well-preserved buildings at the Old City of Kaleiçi is a must. All day, every day, the Burning Flames of Chimera stay alight. Marvel at this mysterious wonder and when you feel like learning more about it, browse the exhibitions inside Kaleiçi Museum. Some top sights in this Turkish resort city include the 13th-century Yivliminare Mosque and Antalya Museum.
With its Blue Flag beaches, it’s no surprise that holidays to Antalya are so popular among lovers of sun, sea, and sand. Sinop, Kusadasi, Konyaalti, and Lara are four of the most well known beaches, with Lara proving the most popular with families in search of Blue Flag bays. Olimpos is an interesting beach with a relaxed vibe. Positioned southwest of Antalya, it feels somewhat isolated. The sand is backed by dense jungle, which conceals the remnants of Roman buildings. Visit the peaceful village of Side for long stretches of sand and minimal crowds.
