Lara beach area?

Thinking of going to Lara beach next year (probably the Melas Lara) could any one let me know what the Lara beach area is like I.e. Bars restaurants, shops etc, and how busy the place gets at the end of July? Many thanks

There's not much to do outside of the hotels in Lara I'm afraid there are a few shops - plus a VERY expensive designer mall - & only a couple of bars/restaurants. Most people who visit Lara go for the fabulous all-inclusive hotels & not for the resort facilities.

Hi jeff, don't forget you are near the centre of Antalya, a visit to the old town is well worth it. We go a least twice each time we go to lara beach.

It's very easy to get to Antalya centrum and Kaleiçi (the Old Town) from the hotels as buses run along the strip of hotels into the centre. Well worth a visit or 2 or 3!! There are other shopping malls within an easy bus ride - Laura and She Mall right next door to each other and not very far from the Saturday Market. Terra City one of the bigger malls is only a few minutes further by bus. Bus fares are currently 2 lira each within the Antalya area.

Kaleiçi has wonderful bars, restaurants etc plus some interesting shops among the ones selling souvenirs etc. We often 'find' a different place and we've lived here over 3 years now and go to Kaleiçi most weekends!!!

Buses have boards displayed in their front Windows with several places along the route written there.

Antalya is an easy city to get around using public transport
