The ancient Roman walled city of Side stands on a peninsular flanked by glorius beaches of golden sand.

It is situated between Antalya (transfer time 1 hour) and Alanya (60 km) at the Mediterranean seacoast called "Turkish Riviera".

The vast sandy beaches of Side gently shelve into the warm clear sea. The beach is very safe for children and provides opportunities for fishing, water skiing and snorkelling.

Explore the area on horseback, motorcycle, bike or on foot. Watch the sunset sitting by the romantic harbour, where the fishermen do their work and the boat cruisers come in.

Side is a town with many historical sites, bycantine, greek and roman ruins (Amphi-Theater, Roman baths, various temple ruins, ...). You also find:

  • excellent restaurants (many with seaview)
  • friendly bars;
  • colourfull shops, where you may stroll and shop until the night
  • for the young of heart a couple of discos
