first time in turkey. is konyaalti beach fine? plz help

Coming there in august. Im worried that it is a pebbled beach and not a sandy beach. Will the pebbles poke me in the water? :) is konyaalti the heart of the city. Im staying at the corner park hotel. Will i be able to cross the road easily to go to the beach? Is the biggest mall in antalya within walking distance? Does the beachfront have a paved walkway? Any other tips or advice?

1. Re: first time in turkey. is konyaalti beach fine? plz help

to answer some of your questions;

Will the pebbles poke me in the water? :) no but you might want to invest in some beach shoes ..actually the water quaility and clarity will be better on Konyaalti beach ...many locals perfer Konyaalti beach over Lara beach

is konyaalti the heart of the city. no..but about 20 minutes by bus to the center of the city.

Will i be able to cross the road easily to go to the beach? yes

Is the biggest mall in antalya within walking distance? the biggest mall now in Antalya is Terra city and you can take a bus there..the nearest mall is MMM Migros..and it is also fairly big

Does the beachfront have a paved walkway? yes

your welcome and I will try to answer more of your questions

Is there a mcdonalds, kfc or pizza hut in konyaalti beach? there is a burger king and macdonalds in the mmm migros shopping center..also there is a pizza pizza..similar to pizza hut

Terry city has a KFC..and all the main food court stuff....also across from the hotel there are small buffets where you can get a drink or snack foods..also you are very close to Mini-city and the Konyaaltı beach park area..restaurants and bars there.

and on another bonus maybe by the time to arrive in antalya the new Aquarium will be open..next door to mini-city

Is there a cable car ride up the mountain? that is outside of antalya past kemer and near tekirova..arrange for a tour to there.

Any idea what the ocean temperature is in august? warm maybe around 27C..but you can also do a search online in google for antalya sea temperatures

I hope the waves will be calm. yes its calm..only winter sees bigger waves.

What are my options to get to corner park hotel from the airport? take a taxi from the aiport..or have them arrange a transfer for you..expect to pay around 60-70 liras for a taxi from the airport to the konyaalti.
