Konyalltı - Antalya

Konyaaltı is a district of Antalya, Turkey. The name Konyaaltı, which means "below Konya", stems from the fact that the city of Antalya was an administrative part of the city of Konya during the Ottoman Empire, and the location of the beach is where the steep cliff of the city ends.

It is situated beneath the old city of Antalya extending miles toward west with various kinds of beaches from sand to shingle. The water is a little cooler compared to other beaches of Antalya because of an underground creek flowing to the sea. There are modern underground facilities for aesthetical reasons. Transportation is easy by means of a buses etc. It is reachable by foot as well.
