Antalya Region Holidays

Antalya Region Holidays – Breath-taking beaches and ancient history

One of the most popular holiday destinations in Turkey, the Antalya Region is famed for having the most beautiful coastline in the country – affectionately known as the Turkish Riviera. This is so much more than just a fantastic beach holiday destination however. You’ll find enchanting Old Quarters in Antalya city and Alanya, full of winding cobbled streets and crooked Ottoman-era houses. The Lycian Way, a 320-mile coastal path connecting Antalya with Fethiye, is considered one of the world’s most beautiful walks – ideal for hikers. Jeep safaris climb high into the Taurus Mountains through tiny, timeless Turkish mountain villages. And there are vibrant nightlife scenes in Antalya, Side and Manavgat for those looking to party the night away.

The area is littered with astounding, ancient historical sites, including the Roman Amphitheatres at Aspendos and Side and haunting crumbling ruins at Perge, Termessos and Simena. Natural wonders abound, from the thundering Düden, Kursunlu and Manavgat Waterfalls to the Köprülü Canyon and Olympos National Park. Those who like to keep active on holiday won’t be disappointed either, with windsurfing, canoeing, parasailing, mountain trekking, white water rafting, horse-riding, quad biking and boat trips – just some of the exhilarating pursuits to be experienced in the area.

All in all, there’s something for culture vultures, nature lovers, beach bums, families and party animals here.
