Quite expensive! Probably 70-80 lira. There is a bus and details are on the Antalya forum Page on the right.

Cost us 49 lira from outside the best western plus khan hotel in Kaleici to the Lara Beach public section.

On the way back it was about 60 lira due to some misunderstanding by the driver that caused him to drive around in circles through the old town.

This was on Friday.

The area the hotels are in is Kundu which is a little further out than Lara public beach :o)

We took a Taxi from Aska Lara to Kaleici today, and it was just a shade under 100 Lira.

Initially they asked for 25 Euro, but were fine when we asked or Meter. Driver even stopped on the way and bought us Ice Creams and cans of coke at his expense.

In the end he stayed there free of charge for a few hours to take us back for 200 Lira return. Gave him 220 upon return for his good Service.

That sounds more expensive to me at first blush than it does when doing the math. For example, 60 TL converts to about 10 pound sterling, if my calc is correct. Or am I missing something?

200 Lira is approx. £32 right now. You will have to remember that it is an approx. 45 minute drive each way. Good Value to me, especially as we had 2 kids with us.

Often negotiating a return fare as you did is advantageous especially when you have children with you! Many taxi drivers will also offer this to places such as Side, Perge, Aspendos, the Waterfalls etc. Very often works out cheaper than excursion prices especially if there are two or more of you.
