Belek is a beautiful resort on the Turkish Riviera that's blessed with magnificent beaches and sparkling waters. Holidays to Belek are a great choice for beach lovers and the sunny climate makes it a great choice for both early getaways or late summer escapes. With fantastic hotels and resorts available, including full board, half board, self-catering and all-inclusive options, Turkey is a top spot for couples and families alike who want sun, sea, sand and swimming pools. Holidays to Belek offer a variety of activities, from its well-manicured golf courses that back the busy beachfront to the historic ruins of Perge. Spend the day on Belek's spectacular stretch of sand (backed by luxe hotels and excellent restaurants) or stroll along the palm-lined boulevards into Belek town. A short drive away is Pamukkale with its wonderful landscape of white pools and terraces, and you can bathe in its thermal pools. For history buffs, it's worth heading to the nearby Hierapolis, where the Roman ruins can still be seen.
A day trip to the weekly market of Manavgat is great for shopping colourful textiles, woodcarvings and souvenirs, plus sightseeing at the serene Selale Falls on the Manavgat River is particularly recommended. If you want to explore further afield, there are plenty of excursions to enjoy on your Belek holidays, whether you fancy exploring the famous underwater ruins of Kekova, snorkelling in picturesque coves, dolphin spotting or stepping off the beaten track on an off-road safari tour! Nightlife can be sizzling in this pretty resort with amazingly acrobatic belly dancers and cabaret shows with an Ottoman theme, so you'll never be short of entertainment.
