Here can be found three temples including the 4 remaining pillars of the Apollo Temple overlooking the Harbour, Apollo is the God of beauty and this is where it is thought that Anthony met Cleopatra, come and soak up these amazing vibes. Also an aqueduct and a nymphaeum (a grotto with a natural water supply dedicated to the nymphs). The Aspendos amphitheatre was constructed in the Hellenistic period and is the largest of Turkey. Some of the opera, ballet, musical concerts are held here in the month of June and July with seating for up to 15000. Turkish archaeologists have been excavating Side since 1947 and the work is still on-going.
There are countless natural beauty spots from the magnificent waterfalls at Manavgat, the protected Sorgun forest, wide and long sandy beaches on both sides of the Side peninsula with the protected Turtle beach to the west side, a coastline which offers you infinite adventures including paragliding, water-skiing, jet skiing, scuba diving, dolphin watching, fishing, boat trips, quad biking etc. and for the less energetic days, Turkish baths and massages.
This is Turkeys main Golfing area, namely because of the long season. Side has a golf course, but Belek the main golf town is just a 30-40 mins. drive away and benefits from 8 CHAMPIONSHIP GOLF courses. Belek was chosen as Europe's golf destination in Europe in 2008 by the International Association of Golf Tour Operators.
More info about golf in the area can be found at; http://www.sidegolf.com/Index.asp
The average temperature of Side varies from a minimum of 15C in January to a maximum of 40C in July and August. Best seasons to travel around are autumn and springs, but winters are also very popular among tourists as there are an average of 5 hr of sunshine and temperature are not below 15C.
THE SIDE AREA
Side is a lively and historic ancient town, set on a spectacular peninsular where visitors gather each sunset to watch the sun go down behind the Roman Apollo Temple, not to be missed!
There are a countless number of restaurants, bars and nightclubs set around the harbour, including Turkey's largest open air nightclub. All within a 5-10 minute drive. The bazars and boutiques in Kumkoy, just a short walk away have great bargains and are open till late, specialities include: Designer clothing (mainly copies) leather goods, jewellery and many varieties of Turkish delight.
There are miles of lovely sandy Mediterranean beaches a short walk and all along the coast where you can enjoy many water sports and you are bound to see turtles on your visit.

"Fantastic Apartment it had everything we needed and in an ideal location."
We had week stay in this apartment in May 2012. I traveled with three fiends, the apartment was fantastic with plenty of room and everything you could possibly need was there and finished to a high standard, including beach towels which was a fabulous thought. We particularly loved the jacuzzi with nice glass of wine. The complex had a lovely pool bar which served terrific food and the staff were really attentive and good fun. We were also surprised that the complex had lifts to all floors which is great for anyone who struggles with stairs. Two minutes from restaurants and bars and a short walk to the beach - which was great for us oldies!!! The beach has lots shade and provided free sunbeds (all you need to do is buy a drink from the beach bar). This is a brilliant location to travel to the old town of SIde, we went by dolmus which was really cheap and easy. All in all could not fault the apartment, complex or location.

"Fantastic holiday enjoyed by all!"
The apartment was in a great location with shops, bars and restuarants only a 5 min walk and the beach only 10 mins. The complex was lovely and clean and well kept and had a really relaxing feel. Great for the kids and we all felt safe to let them go off to play. Staff very helpful and friendly and spoke good english. There is also a well stocked shop on site but with such good restuarants in the town we ate out most nights.
The apartment inside was lovely and bright and modern and had everything you could think of. Plenty of room for the kids to relax in and the jaccuzi bath on the balcony was great to sit in and watch sun go down with a glass of wine.
