Places to visit: The apartment is situated on the Mediterranean coast approx 2km from Side. The Mediterranean coast of Turkey enjoys hot weather throughout the spring, summer and early autumn months. The apartment is situated nearby to the Taurus mountains which means there is often a lovely, refreshing breeze during the hotter weather. Side enjoys approx 300 days of sunshine per year which makes it an ideal destination for those seeking a warm climate. In April it is possible to ski in the Taurus mountains in the morning and swim in the Mediterranean in the afternoon!! . It is approx 650m from the beautiful sandy beaches of the Turkish Riviera. The beach has a newly developed pedestrian promenade which leads into the heart of Side and is perfect for strolling along the sea front. There is plenty of shops and restaurants nearby. The beach also has many and varied water sports including jet bikes and para-sailing.
Once the secret hideaway of Anthony and Cleopatra, Side is one of the best known classical sites in Turkey and is a unique and charming resort. It has retained many of its architecture and archaeological features including the amphitheatre and the Temple of Apollo. The old town of Side is a joy, with the ancient Roman ruins mixed in between bars, restaurants and shops. The main area of the town is pedestrianised and it's a wonderful place to visit in the early evening to window shop, buy some bargains, have a drink or grab a bite to eat. It has a great atmosphere but in the height of the season be prepared to haggle for the bargains! The harbour area has some great restaurants serving freshly caught fish and other Turkish dishes. There is also the option to rent a boat, join an organised boat trip or go scuba diving. The view in the evening is spectacular and you can watch the sun setting whilst enjoying a drink. Next to the harbour is the roman ruins of the Temple of Apollo.
The town of Manavgat is also nearby. The waterfalls on the jade green Manavgat River are another popular local attraction. But don't stop there, continue on up the mountain to the Green Lake & see the dam. All of this is spectacular. There are also a few wonderful restaurants hidden away. These can be accessed by car or by locally organised Jeep tours. Further into the pine-forested mountains, a Roman bridge spans a rushing river in the Koprulu Canyon National Park, which is one of Turkey's premier white water rafting venues. The ancient city of Aspendos is approx 20 Min drive away. This is most famous for its amphitheatre, probably the best preserved in Asia Minor. It is still in use today, and stages the annual Aspendos Opera and Ballet Festival every summer. In addition to the theatre, there is an acropolis on a hilltop. Alanya is approx 1 hours drive away. Here there is a castle/harbour, large water park and the opportunity to swim with dolphins.
