Introducing Side

This small resort town is located along the south coast of Turkey and is one of the most relaxing destinations in the Med. Pronounced “see-day”, this ancient port city offers a great mix of beaches and history and features a dazzling seafront lined with beach clubs, luxury hotels and resorts plus some incredible archaeological sites for those who love to explore their surroundings. From its 2nd Century C.E theatre to the imposing white marble columns which still remain of the Hellenistic Temple of Apollo, Side is rich in history and the town today very much reflects its interesting Roman and Byzantine past.
