The Mediterranean Coast region
The Turkish Mediterranean is the coastline (stretching from Kemer to Gazipasa) along the Antalya region to the southern end of Turkey. As the pine covered Taurus Mountains sweep down to the Mediterranean sea, the landscape forms an irregular coastline of, little bays secluded coves, rocky headlands and long sandy beaches.
With its 300 days a year sunshine, outstanding natural beauty, the region has become a paradise for sunbathing, swimming, windsurfing, water skiing, sailing, mountain climbing horse riding and golf. Visiting the Antalya region in March or April, gives you the opportunity to ski in the morning and sunbathe on the beach in the afternoon. Combine all of this with its' rich culture, history and ancient ruins, its easy to see why the Turkish Riviera has become the tourism capital of Turkey and one of the hottest property markets in Europe.
Side has everything you could want. For the culture vulture there is a treasure chest of ancient history all around which includes: The Roman Temples of Apollo and Artemis, The Amphitheatre dating back to Hellenistic period (one of the largest in Turkey after Aspendos), Aqua ducts, The City Gates, and Museum. One of the most enjoyable experiences is walking through these ruins at night when they are all illuminated. Due to its abundance of archaeological treasures, the architecture in the old part of Side is of a certain style, two storey stone buildings with wooden balconies along a labyrinth of narrow alleyways.
For the sun worshippers there are the long stretches of unspoilt beaches either side of the harbour, with varied restaurants and bars serving quality food and beverages at excellent prices close to hand. If you're of a more sporty disposition then you have a myriad of activities to choose between including, scuba diving, water skiing, wind surfing, horse riding, golf, mountain climbing or biking and tennis. Whatever your requirements are for a perfect holiday on The Turkish Riviera a visit to the local 'hammam' (Turkish bath) is highly recommended.
