Manavgat Holidays

Manavgat Holidays – A beautiful riverside town

An authentically Turkish town dating back to 200BC, Manavgat straddles the banks of the Manavgat River, surrounded by pine forests and overlooked by the Taurus Mountains. The resort is located a few kilometres inland from the coast, next to her sister resort of Side. An attractive riverside setting with restaurants, tavernas, cafes and bars makes this an increasingly popular holiday choice. What’s more, there are a number of beautiful Mediterranean beaches nearby just a short dolmus or taxi ride away.

The town itself has a vibrant nightlife scene, or for a change visit the coastal villages of Kumkoy and Llika which also have lively evening entertainment. Manavgat makes a great base for exploring some spectacular sites of natural beauty; particularly the local waterfalls. For those interested in history, neighbouring Side has an impressive ancient Amphitheatre and magnificent temples, and trips can be arranged to the ruins at Seleukeia and Aspendos.

Take a cruise down Manavgat River to the ‘Trembling Lake’, or enjoy a host of activities including golf, white water rafting, paragliding, canyoning, mountain biking and jeep safaris – there’s plenty to do here to suit all tastes.
