Land of Legends Theme Park
The Land of Legends Theme Park, in Belek, is at the top of our list as it is one of the best things to do in Antalya. It’s a guaranteed fun-filled day out for everyone. One side of the park is perfectly designed for the little ones with mini coasters, circus shows and a fun house, meanwhile the Adventure Land side has the 62 metre high, adrenaline fuelled roller-coaster for those adventurer seekers. There’s a huge selection of rides and roller coasters that will whisk you up and down, round and round, and even upside down!
Yet another side to the theme park is AquaLand. Here there are several water rides for all the family, as well as a wave pool, an infinity pool and everyone’s favourite Wild River. You can also get the chance to swim with dolphins for a unique experience you’ll never forget.
If you’re more of a ‘lay on the beach and soak up the sun’ type of holiday goer, don’t worry, Antalya Region has plenty of that too. Antalya’s coast is 640 kilometres long and has numerous stunning white sand beaches scattered along it.
Kaputas Beach in Kas has calm clear turquoise water, with sun loungers and parasols to rent. There’s 184 steps down to the water, which means it’s not suitable for anyone with mobility issues. Kleopatra beach has wonderful views of the Alanya Castle and its own cave to explore once you’ve finished lying on the pristine sands. Patara Beach is 18 kilometres long and boasts a backdrop of rolling hills. There’s also a lifeguard keeping watch over the water, so you can feel safe with any little ones paddling in the shallows.
If you like to add a bit of adrenaline into your beach days, West Beach in Side has an array of exciting water sports to keep you satisfied. Kit up with a snorkel and head out to see what marine life you can spot or get a little more daring and head out on a jet ski, or up in the air with parasailing.
Practice your swing
There are more than 10 golf courses in the Antalya region, which means there’s lots of opportunities to get a few rounds in this holiday. One of the most popular spots to hit the green is the Montgomerie Maxx Royal Golf Club in Belek. The courses here were designed by the master golfer himself, Colin Montgomerie. This 18-hole course is surrounded by a high forest of trees and the ocean. There’s also a club house serving satisfying meals all day. If you get thirsty you can even order a beer from one of the buggy bar boys and they’ll bring it directly to you. Whether you’re a fully experienced golfer or fancy trying it out, where better than under the beaming sun, surrounded by spectacular views.
