Konakli holidays

Konakli is a tranquil and traditional Turkish village in the Antalya region. Loved for its scenic location at the foot of the majestic Taurus Mountains, the resort is the perfect quiet spot that is still within easy reach of the region’s favourite attractions. Pick from days out at the golden Cleopatra Beach, rafting down the Dimcay River or taking the kids to Aqualand, returning to Konakli in the evenings for mezes on the waterfront. 

Excellent Beaches

Konakli Beach sits against the lush green backdrop of the Taurus Mountains and in front of a beautiful blue sea. Its peaceful surroundings make this an excellent choice for long lazy days on the sun- lounger. Its shallow shoreline is safe for kids to paddle in making the beach a popular choice for families. 

Family fun

There’s no time like family time. On your holiday to Konakli you can take the kids to Aqualand for an unforgettable day on the water rides. After you’ve explored the park, why not take a more relaxing water excursion with a gentle cruise down the Dimcay River nearby.
