Holidays to Antalya
An Antalya holiday offers something for everyone; shimmering beaches, palm-fringed boulevards and a chic picturesque waterfront blend with winding, cobbled streets leading to a walled Byzantine old town which is one of Turkey’s cultural and artistic treasures. Add to this; traditional craft markets, fine dining and a vibrant night scene and it’s easy to see why last minute Antalya holidays are so in demand. We at The Co-operative Travel offer bargain holidays to Antalya throughout the year.
Antalya package holidays range from all-inclusive hotels and holiday villages, to boutique apartments and coastal villas, with options to suit all budgets. Only 8 km from Antalya airport, and with a flying time of just over 4 hours, it’s the perfect destination for those looking for a relaxing and cultural beach holiday with plenty of activities and entertainment.
Antalya holidays offer that unique blend of beaches, heritage attractions and the stunning scenery of the Mediterranean Coast. An ancient Byzantine city founded in the second century BC, Antalya has played host to everyone from Alexander the Great to the Ottomans, each one leaving their mark on the city. The fortified Old Town has been perfectly preserved, its walls reaching down to the picturesque Roman harbour. This is where the majority of nightspots can be found, as well as trendy bars and classy restaurants. More can be found by following the narrow winding streets into the old quarter of Kaleiçi, which has everything from craft shops to traditional tavernas.
Sheltered by the stunning Taurus Mountains, Antalya enjoys a mild Mediterranean climate year-round, with around 300 days of sunshine. This makes late deals in Antalya very popular with sun-worshippers, who can also enjoy a range of water sports. As well as a fantastic sand-and-pebble beach near the city centre, there are a number of quiet coves and inlets along the coast. For families booking cheap Antalya holidays, we at The Coop Travel recommend the Lara Beach area for its superb sandy, sloping beaches and safe waters.
