Side Holidays

Side
Overview

Side (pronounced See-Day) is a picturesque beach resort with a prime location on the Turquoise Coast, serving up an attractive combination of old and new. Located just 4km off the Antalya-Alanya highway, this ancient city is enchanting with historic Greco-Roman ruins and plenty of fine beaches to boast of. You'll find a mixture of modern and authentic vibes on your holidays to Side, where impressive ancient ruins rub shoulders with vibrant souks, golden sandy beaches and bustling restaurants. The old town centre juts out to sea with soft sands settled on either side and warm sea that's perfect for paddling in. If you're interested in history, the impressive temples of Apollo and Athena are well worth a visit, too.


Side holidays are great for those who enjoy a spot of culture while at the coast. This Roman inspired resort is packed with impressive ancient sites, a must-visit being the famous amphitheatre and bathhouse located in the Antalya region. When you're not marvelling over architecture, meander the resort's colourful maze-like souks and boutiques, brimming with leather goods, myriad spices and souvenirs. Temperatures on Side holidays reach high 20s in the summer months of June – October, while a pleasant time to visit would be the cooler spring months of April and May, ideal for wandering the shops and bars in town.


If you're a foodie, sample delicious Turkish fare at the local favourite Side Ocakbasi Restaurant - or simply head to one of the delightful harbourside eateries. Tourists find Side holidays a safe and affordable short haul option, away from the hustle and bustle.
