It is a popular tourist destination in the summer, and Antalya property is highly sought after by foreign investors. One of the reasons for this is its great accessibility, the local Antalya International Airport is only eight miles (thirteen kilometres) away from the town centre and a good range of airlines serves the Antalya area.
The province of Antalya includes some of the most popular resorts in Turkey including the magnificent ancient city of Side, the Riviera type beaches and numerous golf courses of Belek, and the historic sites and beautiful golden beaches of Alanya.
Kaleici, the historical centre of city is increasingly modern, with luxury apartments and boutiques, alongside six major shopping centres, bars, restaurants and other local modern facilities. Transportation is plentiful, with taxis, trams, buses and minibuses all operating throughout the city. The lively humming harbour and marina area, set within the commercial port of Antalya, reveals the presence of economic growth in the region. However the city retains its classical heritage and was recently presented with the Golden Apple, an important tourism honour.
