Another trail in the same area as both above mentioned.

Konayaaltı trail is a part of the Lycian Way, like a small extra (as it’s a loop). It starts on the same gravel road like the above mentioned scenic hike leading to the top of the mountain.

4. Konyaalti Beach

Konyaalti is the most popular beach in Antalya city.

It’s a long beach which makes it also a great place for walking in Antalya. Walking from one end to another, and back, can also take you a full day — if you stop for some drinks, ice cream and lunch on the way.

There is also a bike path next to the Konyaalti beach.

5. Atatürk Kültür Parkı

DISTANCE: around 4.66 miles / 7.5 km one way

Atatürk Kültür Parkı is a great place because of two reasons.

It’s close to the old town and it offers beautiful views of the Konyaalti Beach area, the most popular beach in Antalya. Situated both close to the beach and in walking distance from the old town, it’s a very cool place to go for a walk in Antalya. It’s also a great place to hide from the sun, if and when it gets too hot for you.

You can go for cycling and walking there.

It’s just a lovely place to go for a walk in Antalya.

It starts right from the old town in the city center, and offers beautiful views of the sea and the nearby mountains. It’s especially nice here shortly before the sunset and right after the sunrise. For most part it goes along the coast, but you’re on top of a cliff, and there’s no beach here in this part of the city.

Have you been to Antalya? Did you go hiking in Antalya or somewhere in the region? What was your experience? Did you go to any of these places mentioned above?

1. Book Your Flight. Find cheap flights using Kiwi.com, Momondo.com. Or subscribe to Dollar Flight Club, if you don’t want to be searching for the flights yourself. Momondo usually is my first choice.

2. Book Your Accommodation. Booking.com, Agoda.com and Airbnb. I use Booking and Agoda at least a dozen times a year, and Airbnb – when looking for a long-term stay. My best tip is to ALWAYS compare the price. Sometimes the same hotel is cheaper on Booking.com, other times – on Agoda. Always compare the price!

3. Buy Your Travel Insurance. World Nomads and SafetyWings are two companies I can recommend. World Nomads offers some extra benefits, that will be important for those doing some higher risk activities, while SafetyWings is significantly cheaper. SafetyWings is only $9.25 / week.
