The Turkish Riviera

The Antalya region is one of Turkey’s most glamorous spots for a dreamy getaway. Think yacht-filled marinas, designer boutiques and world-class golf courses. And of course there are plenty of hip beach clubs to see and be seen in. It’s every bit the exclusive haven for holidaying.

Pristine beaches

Antalya boasts a whopping 650km swathe of white sandy beaches and tucked-away coves. Some are backed by promenades and chic bars, while others roll seamlessly into olive groves, avocado plantations and pine forests. You’re getting much more than just fine, sun-freckled landscape in these gorgeous coastal parts.

Hidden history
