The Complete Guide to

Antalya's Lifestyle

What Is the Lifestyle Like in Antalya?

Antalya is a city on the Turkish Mediterranean, also known as the Turkish Riviera because of its long sandy beaches. It has its own rhythm and its own attitude toward life. With 330 days of sunshine a year and extremely mild winters, life is simply different. Beaches and the sea are part of everyday life, and everything seems to be easier and lighter. Of course, this is reflected in the shopping and eating habits and the nightlife begins when other cities have long since gone to sleep.

But Antalya has more to offer than sun, sand, and sea. The old town, above the cliff overlooking the harbor, looks back on a long history and will fascinate you with its narrow, winding streets and old houses. Numerous ancient cities can be found throughout the Antalya region.

In Antalya, people live a certain way, dress, spend time, and enjoy a night out in a different way. To help you better understand this lifestyle, we have put together an overview of food, culture, beaches, shopping, and nightlife. These are the 5 pillars of Antalya's lifestyle that you will encounter at every turn in the city. Enjoy reading, perhaps with a glass of çay....
