The amazing coastal scenery with the craggy mountainous backdrop of the Taurus Mountains and the captivating antique sites on the Turkish Riviera are an absolutely unique combination.
You’ll love the idyllic beaches and turquoise water of theTurkish Riviera between Kas and Alanya . Here are the most beautiful beaches and bays in all of Turkey – full of sun, sand and the blue sea. There is loads of fun and activities to be had in and at the water throughout the long, hot summers.
This part of the Turkish Mediterranean coast is luxuriously green as it is supplied with plenty of river water flowing down from the nearby Taurus Mountains. It is an ideal place for nature lovers. From the Taurus Mountains you’ll have fantastic views of the coast, and there you will discover the wildly romantic ruins of Termessos at an elevation of 1,000 metres.
Why not visit the historic old city of Antalya – a UNESCO world heritage site with centuries of history. Breath in and feel the Ottoman charm of the old town as it sits majestically above the bay of Antalya. Not far from the city several waterfalls cascade spectacularly over a steep rock face down to the sea. The landmark of the coastal metropolis is the Yivli Minare, the "Fluted Minaret Mosque". Important archeological sites in the neighbourhood are the ruins of Perge and Aspendos. They were among the richest and most influential cities of Greek and Roman antiquity.
In the small town of Side, on the other hand, there is a unique blend of antiquity and the modern. Visit the picturesque old town with its impressive ruins from Classical Antiquity and the Byzantine era, or stroll along the lively main street with its carpet, jewellery and leather shops. A wonderfully varied time awaits you on your holiday on the Turkish Riviera.
Get into the spirit and magic of Manavgat! The town is about 15 km west of Side. Discover the many small shops and the bazaar, melt into the Turkish hospitality and marvel at the mosque. Enjoy a local speciality: trout from the Manavgat River!
If you need a little quiet and relaxation after visiting the lively town centre, try a boat trip to the waterfalls to the north of Manavgat. There you’ll find a truly impressive display of nature. And if its excitement you want visit the Adventure Park Manavgat - Oymapinar where adrenaline levels rise in the climbing park and where the young and old can show off their scaling skills. Afterwards, take in the fabulous view over the reservoir where you can wind down after an exciting day on holiday.
