Side Overview

Side is a coastal town on Turkey’s southern Mediterranean coast. Once a major Roman port and then a quiet fishing village, it has recently developed into a bustling holiday resort. With two inviting stretches of sandy beach, sizzling temperatures most of the year, lots of shopping and lively nightlife, it ticks a lot of boxes.

 

Old meets new

 

Side hasn’t lost its historic charm, however – you’ll find abundant Roman and Hellenistic ruins sitting in between restaurants and souvenir shops, and the ancient temples of Athena and Apollo are well worth a visit. The town is dominated by an enormous Greek amphitheatre, which is used for summer concerts as well as being a major tourist attraction. There’s also a museum set in restored Roman baths.

 

Take a trip to Antalya

 

You can get to cosmopolitan Antalya in about an hour’s drive, or there are ferries departing daily from Side harbour if you feel like a more relaxing journey. Antalya’s old town will keep you busy exploring with its winding, cobbled streets and Ottoman-era houses. Meanwhile, the newer part of town is home to a modern marina filled with yachts, and the boutiques are a shopper’s delight.

 

 

Things to do in Side

 

 

On the beach in Side

 

One of the biggest decisions you might make in Side is whether to head to West Beach or East Beach for the day’s sunbathing. If you don’t mind the crowds and fancy soft sand, gentle family-friendly waves and watersports, then head to West Beach. In the opposite direction you’ll find East Beach, which is relatively untouched. It’s a bit rockier, but is close to archaeological sites and offers a much more peaceful experience.

 

Top Tip:

 

If you walk further up West Beach you can find some more secluded spots, some of which are actually turtle beaches.

 

Eat and drink in Side

 

For the most authentic Turkish restaurants – the ones where the locals eat – explore the alleyways of the old town.  Think delicious plates of meze, freshly baked pitta bread and real doner kebabs – much better than the ones you’ll get after a night out in Blighty!

 

Top Tip:

 

If you’re feeling adventurous, sample some of Turkey’s national drink Raki. Or for a non-alcoholic alternative, try Ayran.

 

Side Nightlife

 

Side by night attracts a fun-loving crowd, which descends on the bars, pubs and clubs along the main street. The bright, colourful lights and the sounds of music and chatter spilling out of bars make for a great, lively atmosphere. For an experience that’s usually a bit quieter, try the bars on the seafront.

 

Top Tip:

 

Don’t miss a visit to OXYD, the biggest club in the resort with a swimming pool, light shows and live music.

 

Shopping in Side

 

The main street in Side is also a good place to pick up a bargain by day, with souvenir shops and market stalls peddling everything from handmade leather jackets to jewellery, lace and Turkish delight. Imitation designer goods are also available in abundance.

 

Top Tip:

 

Shopkeepers will often accept Euros as well as lira, and don’t be afraid to haggle.

 

Things to see in Side

 

The Temple of Apollo can be reached in a short walk from the city centre. With a location overlooking the coast, the monument offers some great photographic opportunities and is especially picturesque lit up at night. It’s free, and it’s also a good place to enjoy a picnic and a drink by the sea.

 

Top Tip:

 

Wear some good shoes while out and about sightseeing in Side, as you could come up

against some hilly or uneven terrain.

 

 

We Recommend

 

 

Ocakbasi

 

A bit of a hidden gem in Side, this restaurant offers friendly service and a substantial choice of grilled meats and meze. There’s also a decent vegetarian menu, and the house wine won’t disappoint.

 

Surf Café Bar

 

Just minutes away from West Beach, the interior is all atmosphere with Turkish rugs, hanging lanterns and cosy seating areas where you can enjoy live music and belly dancing. Alternatively, sit outside on the roof terrace and enjoy the view.

 

Side Culture and Art Festival

 

This event is held every year in summer, and features free open air concerts by international musicians and dancers. It’s held at the ruins of the amphitheatre and Temple of Apollo, so you can’t beat the atmosphere. Past festivals have had appearances from the likes of Vienna Symphony Orchestra and Istanbul State Opera and Ballet.

In season a lively night time resort with many lovely restaurants to choose from, a bit limited out of season but enough. Some good excursions on offer. The friendly disposition of locals is lovely but not so lovely are the ones who don't take no for an answer, they can be a bit intimidating.

beautiful blend of historical and new

, Glasgow

Loved Side. Roman ruins to freely wander through, sitting alongside modern shopping areas, restaurants and dance bars. Relaxing harbour and long beachside walks. West beach is a bit busy and sunbathers are like sardines, East beach a bit quieter and not so jam packed (I prefered the East). Lots of shops selling the ubiquitous 'fake' designer goods, with only very few selling genuine Turkish crafts...such a shame, never the less not a BurgerKing or Macdonalds in sight...thank goodness....in a place like Side it would be good to see continued authentic Turkish goods and food.

The best thing about my stay was ...

mix of Roman history and Turkish life

10/10 Amazing

Pretty resort, not as commercial as many

Architectually outstanding. A pretty resort much more suited to the discerning traveller than those who prefer the "all inclusive" "fish and chips" type of resort.

Side is a lovely town

, Eastbourne, East Sussex

We stayed about 25/30min walk (or a 5min taxi ride) from Side old town and harbour. Which was great because we wanted a very quite place to stay. The old town is lovely - very lively! there is a main street with dozens of shops and restuarants, all set in the old ruins (free to look around) - the Temple of Apollo looked beautiful in the sunset. The harbour is great to wonder around - they often seemed to have entertainment in the main square, and watching the ice cream sellers was facinating. Would recommend The End Bar and Restuarant (GREAT service), and The Aphrodite. And if you are longing for some great food, I can't recommend getting a taxi or bus out to the Irish Bar (The Shamrock). (Ask the driver to take you too Jennet Market, pronounced Janet Market).

The best thing about my stay was ...

Lovely atmosphere, great ruins in the harbour.

Side is nice. People are nice though the salesmen are a little pushy. Do go rafting and see the wonderful views of Köprulu Kanyon. You can book a trip anywhere from Side. Antik Side is a bit more expensive, but the views are amazing.
