Holidays to Side
Some of the most magical holiday destinations manage to take your breath away without trying too hard. Side is one of those places. This small fishing village is located on a peninsula between two gorgeous beaches lapped by the waves of the Mediterranean Sea, But what really makes it special is also the plethora of fascinating Roman ruins here. Spend the mornings exploring ancient buildings, the afternoons working on your tan, and the evenings dining on superb Turkish cuisine next to the water in enchanting Side.
What to see and do on a Holiday to Side
Side’s main draw is its wealth of archaeological sites scattered throughout the resort. This was the site of the ancient Roman city of Selimiye, and today, visitors simply need to stroll through the streets of the resort to take in the crumbling stone houses, mosaic tiled floors, massive amphitheatre, and old city walls and moat. One of the most impressive sites is the Temple of Apollo, with its carved columns resting on a scenic location overlooking the sea.
Besides amazing architecture from centuries gone by, Side also offers idyllic beaches where you can while away the hours on the sands. The beach to the west of the resort is where the action is, with sun loungers and parasols looking out over the sea, exciting water sports, and plenty of hotels, ice cream shops, cafes, restaurants, and beach bars lining the sands. If you are looking for a more quiet strip of sand, the beach to the east is where to go, with its sand dunes spilling into the sea, and picturesque Roman gates and pillars.
Another great way to spend your days on a holiday to Side is shopping at the many boutiques and markets that sell clothing, leather goods, jewellery, carpets, and souvenirs. The main market is a bustling spot where you can bargain hard with the local shop owners. Outside the market, the atmosphere is more relaxed, and you may even find some better deals the further away you go from the centre of the town.
