Side sits upon a sunny peninsula on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast. The shoreline provides a few beautiful beach options, offering excellent conditions for watersports, bathing and swimming.
The area dates back thousands of years and is now a popular tourist spot. Great lengths have been taken to ensure that the area still retains its original charm. Most visitors will choose to visit the impressive Roman ruins on a Side holiday where a large amphitheatre and a temple are to be seen.
Browsing the local stalls for clothes and souvenirs is a major pastime in the old part of Side, and haggling is encouraged.
By night, most visitors will frequent the restaurants and bars of the lively and modern harbour area. Revellers will find plenty of party haunts to check out, while more relaxed travellers can enjoy the evening over a fine meal and quiet drinks.
