The sandy LARA beach lies to the east, and was quite close to our hotel. There is a tar road that will take you there, or you just hop into a cab for the quick way of getting there. The sand has a dark colour to it, but the mountains are absolutely spectacular in the back ground.
Antalya is not famous for its beaches but it doesn't mean that it has not got nice beaches. But there are a few beaches outside Antalya which are really beautiful like Side.
There are two beaches in Antalya city limits as well. One of them is Lara Beach. Lara Beach is called Lara Plaji in turkish language. It is a nice and clean beach. I loved being there.
When u are there do hire a motor scooter to enjoy a ride in the sea ;-)
