Antalya is an area situated on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, commonly known as the Turkish Riviera, and it boasts some fantastic resorts for those looking to book a cheap holiday this summer.
The resort of Antalya itself is a great place to start, and you certainly won’t have much of a transfer to worry about from Antalya airport. As well as the main Konyaalti beach, Antalya has some fantastic smaller beaches to choose from – and boat trips from the harbour are a popular excursion for holidaymakers.
You’ll also benefit from fantastically preserved history and culture in Antalya, with the 2nd Century BC Hadrian’s Gate and the Old Town to explore. You’ll also be perfectly placed to enjoy one of the best archaeological museums in the world, the Antalya Museum.
When evening falls, the atmosphere in the Old Town is fantastic. Be sure to sample traditional Turkish cuisine in one of Antalya’s restaurants, before moving onto the bars and clubs, which come alive after dark.
