The famous Mermerli Beach is Antalya’s oldest beach. The little pebbly beach belongs to the Mermerli restaurant and is situated east to the marina. Deck-chairs and umbrellas must be paid. Its meaning is Marble Beach, and for good reason. It is all coral and marble at this tiny beach area, sometimes only accessible by steps and more steps going down 50 ft cliffs.

Best place to find artisan handicrafts: In Antalya, you’ll likely see the same types of handicrafts just about all over. Turkish Jewellery making, which shaped the heritage of thousands of years inherited following the Ottoman Empire and Seljuk Empire, is shaped on such a splendid tradition and carries the traces of different cultures through the experience of thousand years. In addition, you can buy handmade carpets of Yörüks, especially Döşemealtı Nomad carpet of Antalya. The Yörüks are a Turkish group of people, some of whom are still nomadic, primarily inhabiting the mountains of Anatolia around Antalya.
|Piyaz (Antalya Bean Salad)|
The meal at this local eatery had me salivating for days: Antalya’s signature cuisine includes Piyaz, spicy hibeş with mixed cumin and tahini, şiş köfte, tandır kebap, domates civesi, şakşuka, börülce salatası, kabak çiçeği dolması, kabak çintmesi, börülce çorbası, şiş köfte, laba, and various cold Mediterranean dishes with olive oil. One local specialty is tirmis, boiled seeds of the lupin, eaten as a snack. "Grida" (also known as Lagos or Mediterranean white grouper) is a fish common in local dishes. You should try Piyaz (Antalya Bean Salad) when you visit Antalya. In Antalya, a beautiful city with magnificent beaches and historical places on the Mediterranean coast, piyaz is made differently than the rest of Turkey. The difference is tahini and garlic, which enriches the taste incredibly.
