In the south-west region of Antalya you'll find the tranquil beach resort of Turkler, which has managed to shy away from the spotlight, maintaining its reputation as a peaceful and low-key destination on the Turkish Riviera. Spend days relaxing on the white-sand and pebble beach or take advantage of the region's rich history and explore nearby ancient ruins.
With a balmy Mediterranean climate and close proximity to natural and historic attractions, Turkler is an excellent base from which to explore the rest of the Antalya region. Never feeling over-crowded, even during the height of the summer, this part of the Turkish coastline remains serene throughout the year.
A 20-minute drive east will find you in the coastal resort of Alanya, which offers more shopping, dining and drinking options, an abundance of ancient ruins to explore and a number of day excursions on offer. A regular bus service runs between these two resorts giving you the opportunity to ricochet between the low-key tranquility of Turkler and its livelier neighbour.
Nightlife and dining in Turkler is mostly contained within the resort's hotels, with the larger complexes providing multiple bars and restaurants. If you venture into the village you'll find a handful of traditional establishments where you can dine with the locals and taste fresh, homemade Turkish treats. For a wilder night out, head to the nearby resorts of Alanya and Konakli, where you'll find a host of vibrant bars and nightclubs.
