Overview of Antalya, Turkey

Pegasos World Hotel is located in Antalya, a popular resort city located on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. With year-round sunshine and Blue Flag beaches, it’s easy to see why Antalya is such a hit with holiday-makers. The city, which was once a major Roman port, is steeped in history. Hadrian’s gate, build to honour the Roman Emperor’s visit in 130 A.D, and 2nd-century Hidirlik Tower, are a must-visit on your holidays to Turkey. You’ll also find here some of the finest beaches on the Alanya coast, with the mile-long Kleopatra Beach a firm favourite, thanks to its soft-white sands and laid-back bars.

Things to do in Antalya

It would be a shame to visit Antalya without a trip to the classic ruins of Side. The impressive Roman amphitheatre, which once seated 15,000 people, is a must-see. Antalya’s Temple of Apollo is also an amazing piece of history to behold. Believed to be the spot where Anthony met Cleopatra, it’s a truly magical place. Side’s old town is a great place to grab a bite to eat. Don’t forget to try traditional Turkish gözleme – a savoury pancake filled with potatoes, cheese, or meat. For hand-made bargains, such as accessories, leather goods and homewares, head to Kaleiçi. You could easily spend the day here, wandering along the cobbled streets and admiring the traditional handicrafts. However you spend your time in Antalya, one thing is for sure: you won’t be short of entertainment. A holiday to the city is ideal for families looking for more than a week by the beach. From action and adventure, to breath-taking historical sites and lively town squares, Antalya has it all.

Resort Summary

The former playground of the Greeks and Romans, Side is a coastal resort of epic proportions. It’s also rumoured to be the holiday spot of history’s first power couple, Antony and Cleopatra. Found on a little peninsula on Turkey’s southern coast, this town is sandwiched between two scenic beaches and dotted with ancient ruins.

Nearby nature resorts keep things subdued while watersports on the coast up the energy. Days at the beach and Instagramming the crumbling columns of the Temple of Apollo are all good fun during cheap holidays to Turkey, but sundown is when Side really comes to life.
