Antalya Best activities


There is plenty to keep holidaymakers happy. Every imaginable water sport, above or below the sea is readily available. Further afield there are a number of other activities with movement around the city fairly simple.

Antalya Aquarium
The modern aquarium is world’s largest tunnel aquarium. It is on the main highway dropping down from the centre to the Konyaalti shore. There is a huge variety of marine life to see from many parts of the world.

This elevated area over 2009 feet high to west of the city provides great views over Antalya. There is a hotel, a rotating restaurant, and a nightclub on the site. Travellers who arrive by road over the mountains from Fethiye in the west or Burdur and Ankara to the north have that same view as they pass the carved stone memorial of Mustafa Kemal Ataturk who is looking down over that same city.

Take to the Seas
There is plenty of opportunity to take a cruise out to sea. You may come across someone in Kaleici who is on a yacht or gulet cruising down this wonderful coastline. It is certain to get you thinking about at least a day trip this time round though negotiate the price before stepping on board. Perhaps on your next visit to Turkey you will decide to do something similar yourself during the summer months?

Belek has become a major European golf destination, holding an annual European Tour Event each November before the season’s finale in Dubai. It is about an hour east of Antalya but certainly worth the trip. Equipment and buggies are available to hire at many of the 30 or so courses and tee times can be, and should be booked in advance. If you want an overnight stay there are plenty of plenty of hotels.

This waterpark in Konyaalti is great for families. There is plenty to amuse children along this coastline in general.

Duden Waterfalls
These waterfalls are just a short distance out of the City. At least that is where they start. Water falls over rock and travels underground as well finally dropping over cliffs on the coast and falling into the sea.

Antalya Zoo
The Zoo is on the main road route out of Antalya which takes traffic north and west to other parts of Turkey. If you are on high on that road when the sun goes down, just stop for a moment and enjoy it.
