Really friendly, not like it was maybe 10 years ago where they would chase you down the road trying to get you into their shops, they asked as you passed, put politely, never pushed when we refused politely. Just a great place.

Beaches

Side has two long sandy beaches; the beach to the west of town has shallow, calm water and fine sand, and is where the majority of hotels line side by side along the beachfront. The beach east of town has rocky areas and is much quieter; this is where you'll find the locals. Both offer a good range of watersports, snack bars and facilities.

Things to do

Activities in Side are centred on the beach, with plenty of watersports varying from banana boats to water-skiing and pedalos to parasailing. While the larger hotels offer just about every entertainment option available, often accompanied by an enthusiastic animation team.

Other sporting activities available in and around Side include beach volleyball, tennis, horse-riding and quad-biking, as well as the golfers paradise in the resort of Belek.

Out and about

There are plenty of restaurants, music and sports bars in and around the resort, with something to suit all tastes and budgets. The harbour provides a beautiful setting to enjoy fantastic seafood, though you can expect the prices to be slightly higher.

Nearby attractions

Take a boat trip along the Manavgat River to see the Manavgat Falls a few kilometres from Side. It's a popular excursion, with beautiful scenery and on arrival at the falls there are a few restaurants and market stalls.

The area is also great for day trips to nearby sites of interest such as the Aspendos Roman Theatre, the Roman ruins of Perge, and the Termessos archaeological site found high on the Gulluk Mountain National Park. The old town of Antalya (Kaleici) is a picturesque part of the city and is full of character with narrow cobbled streets once enclosed in the ancient city walls. In the opposite direction is the town of Alanya home to an Ottoman castle and the Damlatas Caves.
