Alanya / Avsallar
The lovely town of Avsallar is about 20km east of Alanya, on the coast between Alanya and Side.Avsallar is one of the real up and coming towns on this coastline, boasting one of the best sandy beaches in the area, along with some stunning scenery.
The lively town centre is the best equipped of the smaller towns in the region, with plenty of bars and restaurants along with Turkish baths, a hospital, and all the shops you’d expect.
It has been well set out, and there is plenty of money being spent on the area in the way of statues, parks and fountains to make it an attractive town for either holidays, or permanent living.
Activities nearby include a water park, dolphin park, horse riding, hiking and a wealth of watersports.There is also a lively mix in the area, as it is a popular resort for the Netherlands, Germany, Scandinavia and English.
Another characteristic of Avsallar is its truely open and alive for the full 12 months of the year, and is also within an hour of Antalya airport. For the occasional trips to a big city, Alanya is about 20 minutes by Dolmus or car.
These run along the main road every 10 minutes. And for some historical sight seeing, Side is also on the Dolmus route and about 35 minutes away.

The Mediterranean Basin ensures that most rain comes during the winter, leaving the summers long, hot, and dry, prompting the nearby Alanya board of Tourism to use the slogan “where the sun smiles”.
