If you haven’t been to Antalya yet, what are you waiting for? It’s Turkey’s premier tourist destination – and for good reasons! Let’s look at some of the reasons why you should consider Antalya for your next holiday.
There’s nothing quite as relaxing as basking on a sandy beach in beautiful surroundings. Antalya’s beaches look like something out of a fantasy: soft white sand, sea that’s so blue that you’ll get that ‘pinch me, I’m dreaming’ feeling and a magnificent backdrop of greenery with mountains in the distance. If you’re looking for action rather than relaxation, the beaches are a good place to start too. They’re home to every imaginable kind of water sport from wakeboarding to Gullet cruises and scuba-diving, there’s always something exciting to do.
Summer is the best time to visit Antalya. Winters are still quite pleasant, but they’re cooler and can be pretty wet. However, a summer visit guarantees you practically no chance of rain, hours of fantastic sunshine and deliciously hot temperatures that will prompt you to enjoy a swim in the azure ocean. Sheer heaven!
Arts, culture and history
If you need more than sunshine and sea to inspire you, Antalya has it all. Browse through local markets for arts and crafts, visit amazing ancient ruins that will evoke the marvels of Hellenic and Roman civilization. Tread the streets that St Paul walked in his journeys to spread the good news of Christianity and marvel at ancient castles and fortifications. From museums to art galleries, you should find marvels that satisfy your need for a little cerebral activity and fire your imagination.
Superb Tourist Facilities
Antalya is a tourism gem and as such, there is no shortage of restaurants, clubs, bars and wonderfully luxurious hotels. Luckily, sheer luxury doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg when you’re visiting Turkey. Try staying in fabulous five star hotels like the Delphin Palace and the Delphin Diva. They’re close to the convenience of the city and they’re situated right on two of the best beaches in the area. You’ll be spoiled rotten!
Close to some of Turkey’s most famous sites
If you’ve always dreamed of visiting majestic mountains, stunning sea-coasts, cool, green forests and evocative historic remains, then Antalya is an unbeatable destination. Nowhere else in the world will you find yourself in such close proximity to such a diversity of wonderful things to do and see.
