This is a list of the best resorts with heated sea water outdoor pools.
Even in Antalya, it gets at least cold enough in the winter that swimming in an unheated pool is a bit unpleasant. Many of the resorts along the coast have adapted to visitors who vacation off-season or even winter here and want to spend the time between November and February in the mild Mediterranean climate.
Heated sea water outdoor pools make sure you don't miss the feeling of "swimming in the sea" even in the winter.
