Ali Bey Club

Found directly on a sand and shingle beach, the Ali Bey Club impresses from the moment you arrive, thanks to the sheer scale of the resort and the staggering number of amenities. An enormous waterpark is the main attraction but the property also boasts over 50 tennis courts, a revolving restaurant and plenty of sun loungers to relax on. The spa is also the perfect way to treat yourself for an afternoon. Close to the complex, you’ll find restaurants, bars and a shopping centre, as well as a nightclub. Travel a little further and you’ll come across both Manavgat and Side old town, both of which are bustling with enough shops to make you glad of a comfortable and airy bedroom to return to.

Overview of Side

Holidays to Turkey offer you a heady combination of old and new with modern hotels meeting ancient ruins, phenomenal street food and beautiful beaches at every turn. The Antalya region is a particularly good example of the hybrid nature of the country with Side being one of the most popular towns. Found on Turkey’s south coast, Side is a coastal town boasting two amazing beaches, a host of water sports, a nature reserve and even some artefacts for history buffs to explore. At night, it transforms into a bustling night spot, making it ideal for holidaymakers of all ages.

Things to do in Side

Side is said to be a town of two halves and the beaches definitely reflect this. On West Beach, you’ll find family-friendly fun thanks to gently lapping shallow waters that turn into a water sports paradise just a little further out. Restaurants and bars line the sand, offering maximum convenience. East Beach is very different, as there is nothing but sand and water. Perfect for real relaxation. Though there are plenty of dining options at the Ali Bey Club, venture out to one of the many restaurants in Side as they serve up a host of different cuisines, including Turkish, with plenty of barbecue options to try as well.

Resort Summary

Just one hour from Antalya Airport, Manavgat Town is easy to reach thanks to good road links. Manavgat is known as the Niagara of Turkey because of its waterfall. Although it’s on a much smaller scale than the Niagara Falls, it’s a lovely attraction that’s popular with tourists looking for Turkey holiday deals.

The town is the second largest in the Antalya region, with everything you could possibly want on your Turkey holiday by way of restaurants, markets, ancient buildings and a national park that contains a stunning canyon. There are many areas nearby that are worth a visit, including Side, which is just 15 minutes away by car. Here you can find a 2nd-century amphitheatre and the temples of Apollo and Athena, which are perched in an idyllic spot at the tip of the harbour.
