Family fun and then some
The hotels around these parts are nothing short of fabulous – especially in Lara Beach. At these Vegas-style venues, the fun doesn’t stop thanks to things like circus shows, multiplex cinemas, dinoparks and fairgrounds, all on-site. Out and about, there’s the Dolphinarium in Belek, or Antalya Aquarium. And the beaches? Fit for a postcard.
Great for golf
An exclusive, golfing crowd flocks to Belek thanks to its upmarket vibes and championship courses. There are 14 in total, ranging from former hosts of the PGA Sultan to greens designed by the likes of Colin Montgomerie and Sir Nick Faldo. And with high-profile competitions often in town, it’s no surprise Belek gets kudos in the golf stakes.
Take the time to get to know Antalya city, and you’ll walk into a world of spice stalls, Turkish baths and street food. Further afield, you’ll find the Temple of Apollo in history-stuffed Side, plus the port city of Perge promises its fair share of Roman ruins. Want to explore more? Sea caves, castles and waterfalls are also on the menu. Shoppers – you’ve got gold bazaars and modern malls to look forward to.
