Lara beach is the closest to the airport followed by belek. They are areas of 5 star hotels so no towns so to speak just tourist shops but a little further on you have side with its Town and harbour x

The closest tourist area to the airport is Lara beach at around a 25 min transfer, then Belek at about 40 min, Side at about 50 min, Kemer an hour plus and Alanya at least 2 hours.

Lara and Belek are both strips of AI hotels, all fabulous but with little outside in the way of a town, just tourist shops. Belek also has many golf courses.

Side is a lovely harbour town with accommodation of all types from 5 star AIs to small B&Bs and SC apartments. Therefore there are plenty of bars and restaurants available as well as shops. It has a lovely harbour with plenty of boat trips available, as well as the ancient ruins of Apollo’s temple and the amphitheater. It’s my favourite town in the area.

Kemer is a lovely setting with the mountain backdrop, and also areas of Beldibi and Tekirova with some lovely hotels too.

I’ve never been to Alanya, it tends to come up cheaper for hotels but the long transfer has always put me off!

You will find the Antalya region different from Marmaris and Bodrum as it’s much more international. Brits are in the minority but English is still widely spoken, guests are from both Western and Eastern Europe, Russia and theMiddfle east as well as lots Turkish who choose to holiday there.
