The beaches are a popular attraction and Antalya is often referred to as the Turkish Riviera for its long stretches of sandy beaches, sunshine and excellent golfing opportunities.
The region has an abundance of mountains and valleys: The Taurus Mountain range is one which is absolutely enchanting, particularly in the winter when the mountains are snow capped. There are 3 National Parks in Antalya where you will find a back to basic feel, with all the charm and unusual flora which is unique to the Antalya Region.

Tourism is the main economy for Antalya, although it is also agricultural and is, in fact, Turkey’s largest producer of citrus fruits, flowers and bananas for export.
Antalya is the venue for many events and festivals throughout the year including the popular Golden Orange Film Festival which is held in September. Many of the local celebrations are religious as Turkey is mainly Muslim. For that reason we would advise clothing to be worn appropriately, particularly ladies when off of the beach and especially in any religious buildings.
