Holidays in Turkey always offer a fascinating combination of sun, sea, relaxation, culture and nightlife. But holidays in Turkey's Antalya region raise the expectations to a new level. The beaches are delightful – most are sandy and slope gently into a sea of pure turquoise, making them perfect for families with children of all ages, as well as devoted sun worshippers, beach babes and couples chilling out after a hectic night on the town.
Resorts like Side, with its 10km stretch of glorious beach, and Alanya which is noted for watersports including water skiing, scuba diving and parasailing, provide an excellent contrast to the Antalya's shingle and stunning cliffs. They also add the extra dimension of choice, making the decision to take last minute holidays to Turkey a very safe bet!
And there's much more to enjoy, even on a cheap holiday. Turkey's Antalya coastline was at the heart of the ancient world, with four august cities - Aspendos, Side, Perge and Sillyon – forming important bastions of the Greek, Persian, Roman and Byzantine empires. Today the remnants of these civilisations still give fascinating glimpses into the past, as well as providing a contrast with the wealth of fine restaurants, lively bars and clubs, modern shopping facilities and traditional Turkish markets selling everything from porcelain to hand-woven rugs. Truly the place for all-inclusive holidays.
