Located in Turkey's tourism center, Belek is a hub for travelers all around the world. With the local population being only anywhere from 750 to 10,000 residents, fluctuating numbers reflect the low and high seasons for tourism throughout the year. With these planned changes in population, travelers can easily arrange trips accordingly to whether they would like to vacation quietly or with the hustle and bustle of busy tourism season. With mainly hotels, golf, and other active attractions, getting around town is rather simple. Paying a visit to Belek is sure to reveal why the town is known as "paradise on earth.”
Location: A Township Along the Mediterranean
Located in the Serik district of Turkey's Antalya Province on the south-west of the country, Belek is growing to be a more than just luxury vacationing. Bordering a beautiful Mediterranean coastline, outdoor sport and exploration are just as popular as the many hotspots around the town. As it has grown in popularity for locals and visitors, the beautiful beaches have stepped up cleanliness, and offer easy proximity to parking and other facilities.
Business: Tourism and Golfing
With the fluctuation of low and high season occupants of the town, it is quite clear that tourism is the key business. There are over thirty 4- and 5-star hotels and accommodations, entertainment facilities, and a growing golfing culture. With serene natural settings and an ocean coast surrounding the town, residents and visitors alike take advantage of being outdoors for any occasion. The Kursunlu Waterfall Nature Park opens up to over 100 bird species to observe, and a secret cave behind the waterfall attracts many brave explorers.
Culture: A Town That Aims to Please
All of the resorts and hotels in town have a large focus with golfers in mind. Other attractions are also designed for what visitors may enjoy doing while visiting the small town. Travelers have said that the town sure knew how to aim to please. Without the dedication of the Turkish Tourism Ministry's contribution to make the city a welcoming place to be, visitors may not be able to experience all that Belek has to offer today.
Activities: Shopping, Ballet, and Ruins
After checking into one of Belek's accommodating hotels, travelers can pay a visit to some of the extensive shopping centers that are tastefully lined with trees to keep the natural serene setting of town. For an intellectual evening with the arts, Aspendos amphitheater is a wonderful selection to watch ballet and operas. Visitors can also explore classical sites and the ruins of the Romans at Perge and Side.
