    Antalya trip review🇹🇷

    This was our 1st time visit to Antalya for a beach holiday, we spent almost 11 days in August.

    P.S My trip was affordable and on low budget, below are my top tips from my experience.

    📌weather is hot, temperature was between 33-35

    📌Do not exchange money at the airport, they charge lower rate.

    📌Turkish people don’t speak English, you need Google Translate for all communications:))

    📌How much €€ you want for 11 days trip for 2 people? without shopping almost €1000 & with shopping around €1500-2000

    📌group site seeing from € 30-70 per person depends on the trip. food in restaurant range €4- 6 p/p.

    📌shopping malls for turkish brands best to go to Mark Antalya just 15 mins walk from Kaleiçi city centre, shopping per item from €6 - €65.

    📌Transport: Taxi from airport to the down town was only 250 lira, don’t pay more than this!

    Buses & trams than taxi are the main transport in Antalya, there are card Called “Antalya card” to tap in buses and trams, you don’t need it can use your bank touch card.

    📌Accommodation, we decided to stay in Kaleiçi heart of the city, best to chose any hotel in Kaleiçi, it has excellent location with walking distance to everywhere and many restaurants.

    📌Site seeing, The best thing to do is group tours, if you are Arabic speaker i recommend you Sand tours. Don’t decide to do any activity on your own you will end up pay more money!

    📍Don’t miss those trips: Turkish Maldives in Sulada island, Rafting, Waterfalls, & Pamukkale (they are beautiful) than end your trip with Turkish Hammam.

    📌Beaches: best beach is Konyaaltı Beach park is beautiful, you can go by tram or taxi, next one is Lara beach is 30 mins by bus 08 from Kaleiçi. ( must carry with you beach shoes, beach mats and Beach umbrellas⛱ ) most of the beaches are pebbly.

    overall, it’s a safe city and people are so friendly!

    Lovely place, clear view of the waterfall. You could see the rainbow and take nice clear pictures. There’s a park around it where you can also rent scooters. Hardly need to walk from the main road as we where driving. Lovely experience. There is a restaurant right across the street.

    We drove up to the Sapadere Canyon form Alanya and it was really worth it! It's all relatively new and the long wooden walkway that has been built runs right up to the top waterfall. There's opportunities to swim along the way but beware - the water is fresh!!!! It takes about 15/20 minutes to walk one way but go up early as when we were coming down, there were loads of people coming in and it's just one walkway.

    Nice stop over if it is on your route but I wouldn't make a special trip for it. Colonnade streets are cool to see as is the impressive race track and stadium (access on other side of street, need your ticket). Quite pricey at 100 tlr per person. It was extremely hot so we only spent 25min here. Only a few other visitors were here.

    Amazing displays from Perge. Well presented and laid out. Information in English is good but could be improved. I don’t like audio tours (which was extra charge) as ruins the ambience.

    There’s a small fee that you pay to enter this waterfall, but it was really cheap. As soon as you walk in there’s pony ride and camel. Then there’s shops, restaurant and ice cream shop, there’s also toilet facility. It was really easy to get to the water fall, some stairs down. Not suitable for wheelchair as there isint any access. Lovely place to spend with friends and family.

    Love the fact that you can always find an available sun lounger on a peak holiday season. Lovely beach! I suggest bringing feet protectors as the beach can be a bit rocky. The water was warm to mild, and the waves were calm which was divine! Something was nipping at my legs a few times, couldn't find out what it was, wasn't painful but it was certainly surprising and made me go back to the beach area.

    We went to Termessos with our own car on August 1, 2022. You definitely need a car to go there, it is about 32 km from Antalya. The entrance fee for one person was 20 lira. It is 9 km from the entrance to the beginning of the Thermosos trail. Then from there the walk starts up and among and between the rocks. We were there for about 4 hours because we sat in many places and thought about the old days and their art and of course we enjoyed the views of the mountains and the forest. If you love nature and ancient monuments, I definitely recommend going there, wear good shoes, take enough water with you, you can also take a simple sandwich for lunch. I didn't see any store to buy water and food, and finally, if you have knee and foot problems this place is not suitable for you.

    It's a nice place to stroll around and take some pictures. You can have some good views from the vantage point near the elevator close to Tophane Park.

    Going for a ride on the cable cars was one of the best decisions we made. It was a very hot afternoon in Antalya when we went and found the higher ground much more bearable. There are queues when buying tickets and tourists do pay more than Turkish citizens - around 10 USD per ticket for an adult tourist. On the way up, the cars are usually packed so smaller groups will probably share. Once you reach the top however, you find the peak covered by clouds which especially in the summer is a great relief. The shop is a good place to buy your trinkets and souvenirs - the prices are better than many places in Antalya and the staff are very nice. The restaurant is also pleasant, though the options are somewhat limited sometimes, as some of the items listed aren’t available. The view is great, though due to the clouds taking photos is not very worthwhile. Overall a great experience and a nice way to spend a few hours.

    Aquarium is located in nice building. IT contains more than 70 aquariums with different species.

    Nice 134m length tunel with a possibility to see different species ofctge fish.

    Price for Aquarium Entering is a little bit expensive.

    When there are ruins and treasues to be explored, who would want to spend their time in a mall? I guess the good thing about this mall is they have a decathlon store. So go get some explorer's clothes and head out.

    We really loved just spending time here. We got a snack and sat on the stairs and just watched the people walk by. walk through the gate and explore the side streets which lead to a HIdIrlIk Kulesi, Karaalioglu Park. Maybe have a drink or coffee/tea as you wander about.

    Mall is clean, plenty of shops. Everything is very clean, toilets also. Prices are too big, it’s cheaper anywhere in Europe.

    To get to this beach is directly on the D400 coastal road, amazing views! Depending on what direction you are coming from there is a little bridge connecting 2 mountains, looks spectacular. To access the beach you must walk down around 200 stairs which isnt too bad. Disabled people in a wheelchair cannot get here which is a real shame, disabled access would be a plus. I have a disability but used a walking stick to help me which wasnt too bad. You are able to rest on a small foot bridge halfway down and admire the beauty of this beach cove. There is a changing area, toilets and showers with mirrors and a place to wash hands. There are signs to wear mask and there is sanitiser to use freely. Once you get to the beach however, there are big stones and pebbles so be careful when walking, as you get closer to the sea, it turns to sand, not the softess but nice nontheless. The sun loungers are not that comfortable so be sure to bring comfy towels to lie on for extra cushioning. It is HOT down there and the sea is crystal clear with visible tiny fish so bring a snorkel kit if you like. Its best to get there early if you want a nice view and have unobstructed views of sea, best times is to get there b4 9am so you can get a nice spot without rushing. All in all a great relaxing beautiful beach, a must visit if you are in Kalkan.
