One of the most beautiful places in Antalya is Konyaaltı Beach. It is different than you might expect because, unlike the sandy beaches in other parts of the world, it is a pebble beach beach that stretches for over 4 miles along the Antalya coastline. It is not only stunning, but filled with fun water sports to do in the summer, and lined with restaurants and coffee shops. This particular beach gives you a view of the city and cliffs on one side, and the Taurus mountains on the other – and the Mediterranean’s piercing clarity as you swim means that you can often see fish, and other beautiful, underwater nature. At many places set up along the beach you can rent beach chairs (usually around 10 – 15 TL per chair) and order food or drinks right from the beach! There are lifeguards stationed along the beach, and because of where it is situated, the waves do not grow very large. Some people are known to surf at Antalya’s other main beach (Lara) but rarely at Konyaaltı Beach due to small waves. However, snorkeling is a great way to experience the best of the underwater treasures the Mediterranean has to offer! Whether you are hoping to simply get time in the sun, or go for a long swim, Konyaaltı Beach is a win for the whole family!
