Thanks to its rich culture, history and ancient ruins, the Turkish Riviera has become one of the tourism centres of Turkey.
The coast around Side has lovely long sandy beaches, crystal blue seas and pictureqsue harbours. The Taurus (Toros) Mountains form a dramatic backdrop along much of the coast, often dropping steeply right into the sea. You will also find many pretty villages and the archaeological remains of classical cities.
It is hot in the summer, warm in the autumn and spring and mild in winter since the temperatures usually do not drop below 15 degrees.
Side lies between the two major Turkish resorts of Antalya and Alanya.
Antalya airport is served by all the main UK airports and is approximately 45 minutes drive from Side.
