1. Mermerli Beach
Mermerli Beach is a very hidden but famous beach of Antalya. This beach is in the heart of the city. Mermerli Beach is so close to the Old Town Kaleiçi and yacht marine (Old City Marina).
Bonus: You can go Adalar Beach in the city center, too. Adalar Beach is located in Karaalioglu Park which is near to Antalya Old Town.
2. Lara Beach
Lara Beach is a very famous beach line in the Lara region. The beaches are sandy and various. You can either find free beaches or prefer private ones. There is a municipal beach too. It is cheaper than the others. There are markets and restaurants too. You can have breakfast or eat some snacks or meals during the day if you want.
3. Konserve Koyu
Konserve Koyu is another hidden beach of Antalya. Konserve Koyu is quite cheap because it also belongs to the municipality. There is a deck top of the rocks so you can’t find a long beach in Konserve Koyu.
4. Konyaaltı Beaches
Konyaaltı Beaches is a huge beach line in the Konyaaltı region. It starts from Sahil Yaşam Parkı (as known as Beach Park) and ends with the Sarısu region. Some beaches are private, some of them are public. So you can prefer one of them and enjoy the sun and sea. Konyaaltı region is quite pebble.
5. Sarısu Beach
Near the harbour, there is Sarısu Beach. Sarısu Beach is split into two parts. One is Sarısu Women’s or Ladies Beach which means until 19.00 only ladies can use that part. Inside the ladies beach there are some cafes and restaurants. There is a traditional Turkish bath which is quite a relaxing experience that we highly recommend.
The other part is for everyone. You can have a barbecue at the picnic place and at the same time you can go swimming or sunbathing. You can enjoy it with your family.
Also from here you can travel by Antalya Tünektepe cable car. Enjoy the view.
