Antalya hugs the coastline from the point that the coast road to the west drops down to the commercial harbour of the city. For the next few miles towards Kaleici the road runs along the shore. A strip of luxury hotels run east for many miles out of the centre.
Konyaalti has a long strip of beach, sand and shale with numerous small cafes along its length. There is a nice promenade with the road into the city separating the beach from the hotels, apartment blocks and restaurants of the district. The beach is never too busy even in the height of summer.
The coastline east of Kaleici is slightly different; a cliff coast in many places but there are small beaches interspersed as well as many beaches associated with the numerous hotels of Lara and Kundu. There are exercise areas and pathways along the coast and visitors will be able to enjoy a walk and then simply go down to any small beach that appears during their walk.
