Antalya holidays are the pick of the crop when it comes to sea, sun and fun. Attracting thousands of holidaymakers in search of the perfect family summer holiday, Antalya and its golden sands, pumping resorts and cool restaurants will suit all tastes. The powder-soft swathes of sands in Alanya and Belek, the ancient ruins of Side, the tranquil idyll of Kemer, or the vibrant Lara that’s fondly called the ‘Las Vegas of Turkey’ – choosing the best Antalya resort is a tough call. Holidays to Antalya are particularly popular with travellers looking for water sports, family waterparks, lively bars and a buzzing beach scene.
Also known as the Turkish Riviera, Antalya boasts picture-perfect beaches that are heaven for sun-lovers. The Lara beach is known for its glamourous appeal, while the Konyaalti beach at the end of the city is a good option for families. Situated in the southwest of Turkey, Antalya enjoys a toasty Mediterranean climate during June to September, making it the best time to visit this coastal gateway.
If you write a list of reasons to visit Antalya, you’d be hard-pressed to find any ‘cons’. In fact, with the natural beauty, one of the longest stretches of beach in Turkey, the cosmopolitan vibes, the bazaars and the history, you’d run out of space in the ‘pros’ column too! Antalya is a stunner of a region and perfect for a sun-soaked holiday or late getaway.
