The medieval city of Antalya is often called the “gateway to the Turkish Riviera” and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey. Every year holidaymakers flock from Antalya flights at the city’s airport in numbers so great as to surpass those at Istanbul. Once you touch down in Antalya, it’s not hard to see the appeal of the spectacular city. Described by Attaturk as “the most beautiful place in the world”, Antalya has an awe-inspiring location, nestled on a cliff above the Mediterranean sea, surrounded by the Toros Mountains. The city’s harbour dates from Roman times and throughout the town there are Roman, Greek and Hittite remains.
But many travellers book flights to Antalya not for the sightseeing but for the beaches surrounding the town. The town is located between some of the best beaches in Turkey. All the way along the coast in either direction sun-lovers can find attractive coves and sandy beaches to explore. The town is well-prepared for its hordes of visitors; there is an abundance of watersports on offer, and a good selection of restaurants, clubs and hotels to cater to all price brackets.
