Holidays in Antalya give you that elusive blend of beaches, shopping and nightlife, all steeped in a historic atmosphere. Having mushroomed from its age-old Byzantine centre, it brings together medieval walls, crooked shop-filled streets, a colourful marina and shimmering beaches – creating a pick 'n' mix of pleasures that's difficult to resist.
So where to start on holidays to Antalya? Probably the beach. To one Side of the city, its pebbles and sands offers spellbinding views over dusky mountains as well as a nice line in watersports. For a change of scene, nearby Lara Beach deserves star billing for its gently sloping, golden sands trickling into azure seas.
Next up? Where to stay. Thomson have an enticing choice to cater for all kinds of Antalya holidays. For unashamed luxury, the Hillside Su Hotel is a minimalist masterpiece. Couples will also love the charming Marina Hotel in nearby Kaleici, whilst the superbly equipped Sheraton Voyager Antalya Resort and Spa is a summer haven ideal for families.
And whether you're looking forward to cheap breaks, luxurious getaways or last-minute holidays to Antalya, there are some things you just have to do. Like haggle over hand-made carpets in the old quarter. Recharge your senses with a Turkish bath. Sip cocktails on the waterfront before living it up at a disco or music bar. And if you're into cultural treasures, visit Perge and Aspendos to stare goggle-eyed at their astonishingly old amphitheatres.
