With its rich history and stunning natural beauty, Antalya is a fantastic holiday destination. It boasts over 600 kilometres of coastline, made up of gorgeous sandy beaches, hidden coves, and secluded bays. A selection of these is often rated as among the best in the whole of the Mediterranean, not just Turkey. This part of the country is also especially rich in historical sites; its vibrant history has left behind traces of civilisations as far back as the Palaeolithic period - roughly 2.5 million years ago. Although you’ll have to visit various caves to go that far back, evidence of Lycian, Roman, Ottoman and Byzantine occupation is commonplace. Antalya is also blessed with much natural beauty, its many waterfalls, caves, canyons and mountains provide endless opportunities for nature lovers, adventurers. keen photographers, and those who just like to show off on Instagram. There are plenty of activities on offer that will keep the whole family occupied, and you’ll encounter warm Turkish hospitality and the tastiest food imaginable. If all that isn’t enough, prices are more competitive than in much of Europe, so cheap Antalya holidays are easy to find.
