Side is home to the stunning temple of Apollo which is located in the most idyllic setting. The ancient city takes precedence above all else as it covers such as vast area. The hotels are top class and the beaches are second to none, with a natural harbour that has been used for thousands of years there are numerous activities to make you feel that you have really got to know this famous seaside town.

Side is a year round resort with enough to keep you occupied whichever month you choose to travel. Throughout the winter months you will find a more relaxed atmosphere and of course selected bars and restaurants may close.

Excursions are still available, though they are limited to a selected few. Spring and Autumn are the favourite seasons for many as there is still a full range of activities available and the weather is cooler than the hot summer months.

If you get the chance, you should make your way to the temple of Apollo in time for sunset. The views as the sun sets over the seas setting a silhouette over the temple pillars are second to none and will certainly provide couples with a romantic atmosphere.

Couples may also enjoy visiting the local historical sites such as Perge, Aspendos and Sillyon. During the evening couples may enjoy taking in a show at the Gloria theatre in Aspendos where the world famous dance troupe ‘Fire of Anatolia’ perform nightly during the summer season.

There are ample shops available in the old town of Side. If you are looking for more modern shops and authentic items not aimed solely at tourists you may wish to venture into Alanya or Antalya. Items are usually cheaper when you venture of the tourist trail and you are sure to find a bargain or two if you are prepared to do the footwork.

There are numerous excursions available from the resort but perhaps some of the most popular are the adrenalin excursions. You can choose a light adventure like horse riding and quad safari or you could go all out and opt for hot-air balloon rides and jeep safaris. For those of you interested in local history, you shouldn’t miss the opportunity to visit Perge and Aspendos.

The kids are most likely happy enough on the beach or using the hotel pool but if you want to add some variety for those days when they are ‘bored’ you might spend the day at Land of Legends.

This is a large theme park similar to those found in Florida and it is only a short drive from Side. Equally there are local water parks that are worth a visit and you can always venture into Antalya for visits to the aquarium or zoo.
