A Guide to Beldibi
Beldibi is rustic and charming, with local attractions within walking distance; perfect for families and couples looking to make the most of the beautiful surroundings without transport hassles. Its relaxed atmosphere is a million miles away from the rowdy resorts a little further along the coast, although there are enough bars and restaurants in which to enjoy the warm Mediterranean evenings.
Traditional Turkish dishes top most Beldibi menus and chalkboards are written up with mouthwatering “catch of the day” specials. One of the great things about Beldibi is the proximity of its hotels and restaurants to the beaches, meaning you can swap the sand for the restaurant or bar terrace in seconds. Evenings here are as calm as the surroundings, while a few international bars serve a wide selection of drinks at reasonable prices.
If you’re looking to explore the surrounding area, hiking and trekking are popular pastimes, so don’t forget your walking shoes if you fancy heading up into the hills for the day. Hiring a car is the easiest way of getting around when you want to explore a little further (the modern resort town of Kemer is around a twenty-minute drive south), although Turkey’s public transport network is excellent.
