If you're looking for a mix of beach time and history, the resort town of Side is prime territory. Huddled along the edge of the Mediterranean coast, Side is all about soaking up the sand and sea, but for those who fancy a slice of culture with their sunbathing, exploring the wealth of Roman-era ruins right in town are one of the most popular things to do here.

The Temple of Athena is beautifully placed on the harbor, with the standing columns looking out to sea, and if you climb to the top tier of seating in the vast Roman theater at the other end of town, you'll get a magnificent view of the stately Taurus Mountains.

More than anything else though, Side is a place to relax and enjoy the sunshine, and although the beaches in town do get packed during the summer months, if you have your own transport, you'll find plenty of less crowded strips of sand within easy reach. For ideas on the best places to visit, see our list of the top tourist attractions in Side.
