Side is an ancient Greek city on the southern Mediterranean coast of Turkey, a resort town and one of the best-known classical sites in the country. It lies near Manavgat and the village of Selimiye, 78 km from Antalya in the province of Antalya.
Side Town and Beach
It is located on the eastern part of the Pamphylian coast, which lies about 20 km east of the mouth of the Eurymedon River. Today, as in antiquity, the ancient city is situated on a small north-south peninsula about 1 km long and 400 m across.
Side Apollon Temple
Side’s most famous and most photographed landmark is the 2,000 year old Roman Temple of Apollo situated at the Eastern tip of the peninsula near the harbour. Thanks to periodic restoration work some of the Corinthian style marble columns are still standing and make for an impressive sight particularly at sunset. The Temple of Athena lies in ruins nearby, perhaps one day this too will become a restoration project. Entrance to the site is free.
A small but special lake in Sorgun which gives you a beautiful natural perspective.
Manavgat Waterfall on the Manavgat River is near the city of Side, 3 km (2 mi) north of Manavgat, Turkey. Its high flow over a wide area as it falls from a low height is best viewed from a high altitude.
The white, foaming water of the Manavgat Waterfalls flows powerfully over the rocks. Near the waterfalls are shady tea gardens providing a pleasant resting place.
