You’ll find the quiet beach village of Side on the Turkish Mediterranean, an hour or so from Antalya. Expect a flawless mix of old and new in this Roman-inspired resort, with its untouched old town and glamorous harbourside; a blend of impressive ancient sights (like the amphitheatre) and chic waterfront restaurants await you. On both sides of the maze of winding streets are two sandy beaches, which are perfect for relaxing in the sunshine or tackling some high-octane water sports. Holidays to Side are ideal if you want a laid-back break with friends or a loved one, and thanks to those soft, sandy beaches, they’re perfect for family breaks too. 

Things to do

When the hot Turkish sun is beating down, there’s nowhere better than the resort’s long, sandy beaches; and with two of them to choose from, you’ll have to find your favourite. If you can tear yourself away, the old town is well worth a visit. Both day and night, it has a great atmosphere, with bustling bazaars and Turkish restaurants galore. Just beyond the town limits are its most famous attractions, including the huge ancient amphitheatre. It’s an absolute must for lovers of culture. If you’re a bit of a foodie, then you’re in luck as holidays here give you the perfect opportunity to try the local delicacies. Head to the harbourside restaurants, where they’re serving up tantalising Turkish fare and fresh seafood all day long.
