Konakli’s long, golden beach is the perfect place for a bucket and spade day with plenty of peace and quiet. Take a break from the sun and stroll along the waterfront to find some Turkish tea or fresh juice, and if that tickles your taste buds, explore the bazaar in the centre of town for local fruit and vegetables. Take the kids for a day out at the Aqualand water park, popular for its exciting water slides and pools. If you like a beach-centric holiday, it’s well worth the 20 minute bus ride to experience Alanya’s picture-perfect Cleopatra Beach, famous for its silky sand and stunningly clear water.

Konakli’s golden beach lies against the soaring green backdrop of the Taurus Mountains, with a beautifully blue shore sheltered by rocky headlines. A top family attraction in Konakli, the beach has sun beds and umbrellas, and the shallow shore is safe for kids to paddle in. For real beach lovers, jump on the bus and in 20 minutes you’re at Alanya’s famous Cleopatra Beach. As its name suggests, legend has it that Queen Cleopatra herself once swam in the crystal clear waters. The beach has fine, powdery-white sand and one of the prettiest waterfronts in the area, making it ideal for spending the day.

Konakli feels like a traditional Turkish town, with a relaxed atmosphere and a sociable centre. The town has bazaars three times a week selling fresh fruit and vegetables, plus handmade crafts and souvenirs. Despite its laid-back daytime vibe, Konakli is a lively and enjoyable place for dining and nightlife. There is a cosmopolitan mix of Mediterranean and Turkish cuisine, so you can nibble on a selection of mezes or fresh seafood. The waterfront is the perfect place in Konakli for lunch, with a number of beach cafes and places to sit and sip the refreshing local favourite, freshly-squeezed orange juice.

Situated at the foot of the Taurus Mountains, Konakli enjoys the picturesque backdrop of lush green hills, fragrant with pine groves and full of places to explore. The region is a favourite with hikers, and even canyon climbers. The Dimcay River winds through neighbouring Alanya, a popular place to sail, raft and dine on the riverfront. If you’re on a family holiday, there are plenty of things for kids to do in Konakli’s popular water park, Aqualand. The park has dozens of exciting slides, river rafting and a wave pool. Visitors can also play a round of mini golf and hang out at the family-friendly restaurants and snack bars.
