Take the Nostalji tram westward from Kalekapısı at the center of Antalya to the end of the line near the Antalya Museum and the Hillside Su and Rixos hotels (be sure you’re boarding the westbound tram, toward the mountains), then walk downhill 10 minutes to reach Antalya Beach Park and the eastern end of Konyaaltı Plajı.
Antalya Beach Park has shade trees, snack stands, restaurants, cafes and bars, showers and other services, as well as beach chairs and sun umbrellas for rent. Behind it is a large parking lot for visitors’ cars.
Farther west, away from the city and toward the dramatic backdrop of the Beydağları mountains, there are fewer services, but still sufficient ones in many places.
