Konyaalti beach in Antalya (Konyaaltı Plajı) - western beach of the city

Konyaalti Beach (Turkish name: Konyaaltı Plajı) is one of the most beautiful, long and wide beaches of Antalya, which has all the necessary infrastructure, and there is an extensive beach park and a beautiful embankment nearby.

This is one of the two main beaches of Antalya, the second is Lara beach.

Konyaalti Beach is the western beach of the city, located in the Konyaalti district of the same name.

The length of the beach strip is about 8 kilometers.

On one side of the beach (the side of the city center) there is a rocky coast, and on the other (the western side) there are mountains near the beach; there is also an extensive green area adjacent to the beach (Konyaalti Beach Park). All this creates panoramas of unsurpassed beauty.

For convenience, Konyaalti beach is divided by numbers (beach 1, 2, 3, etc.), but visually the beach is a single beach strip. All beaches under the numbers are called Konyaaltı beaches (Konyaaltı Plajları).

Many of the beaches have a Blue Flag award, and they all have beach infrastructure.

On the beaches of Konyaalti, pebbles, from small to larger, sometimes mixed with sand.

The sea water is clean and transparent. The depth comes pretty quickly.

Entering the sea depends on the location of the beach. So, at the rocks in the eastern part of the beach, the entrance to the sea is more inclined than in the central part of the beach, where it is more gentle.

On Konyaalti beach, places for sunbathing, where you can stay on your own beach towel, alternates with areas with sun loungers and umbrellas, as well as beach areas of hotels.

The cost of a chaise longue and an umbrella from the sun per person per day is from 75 lira.

These hotels have private beach areas with all amenities on Konyaalti beach.

The hotels are located on a rocky hill above the Beach Park. You can climb from the park to the hotels (as well as go down to the beach) by a free panoramic elevator or, if you wish, by stairs.

Behind the Beach Park (to the east along the coast), along Konyaalti beach there is an embankment with palm trees, places for recreation, children's and basketball courts, cafes and restaurants. And the beach itself still has areas where you can sit on your own towel, and areas with sun loungers, umbrellas and other infrastructure.

Here the beach strip is narrower.

Behind the embankment and the bike path there is a narrow driveway, on the opposite side of which there are buildings, among which there are hotels with panoramic sea views, swimming pools, gardens, entertainment and food:

To the west, along the beach, where the Bull Stream River (Boğa Strem) flows into the sea, the Bull Creek Bridge (Boğa Çayı Köprüsü) passes.

Beyond the bridge and the river, Konyaalti Beach continues.

Here the embankment-sidewalk directly borders the road.
