A paradise for holiday makers, where historic ruins, the beautiful outdoors, and gorgeous beaches are all in close proximity, Antalya is also pretty family-friendly. Apart from the kids’ activities available at Antalya’s best resorts, there’s also plenty of other things to do in town for the little ones.


Make sure to visit Antalya during this amazing annual festival that takes place between May and December. Sand sculptors from all over the world arrive to create art out of more than 10,000 tons of sand resulting in giant sculptures composed of sand with unbelievable details. This year’s theme at Sandland is ’14 Wonders of the World and Mythology’, and you can only imagine the amazing mythological characters and historic structures that have been made entirely from sand.

The Land of Legends

If you haven’t booked a hotel then Land of Legends might be the perfect accommodation for you and your kids. Part hotel part theme park, the facility offers all the services of a luxury hotel while also providing a giant world of fun for the kids. We’re talking about a massive open-air aquapark with more than 70 slides, a 5D cinema, swim with the dolphins experience, and daily scheduled kids activities.

With its proximity to the sea it would be crazy for Antalya not to have an aquarium. One of the best places to take the kids, the Antalya Aquarium features one of the world’s largest tunnel aquariums, which measures 131 meters in length. With 40 thematic aquariums, a Snow World and Ice Museum (where kids can play with real snow!), a tropical reptile house, and the Oceanride XD Cinema (where you can experience the underwater world) there’s a lot of things to keep children happily occupied.

Aqualand & Dolphinland Antalya

With its many colorful slides, wave pool, and activity pool, Aqualand is a great place for kids to play around in the water all day. If that doesn’t suffice, Dolphinland is also right next door, offering kids the chance to swim with the park’s friendly dolphins. There’s also a daily show at 2:30pm where the park’s dolphins, beluga whales, and seals show off their amazing talents.

Aktur Lunapark

For some old school fun with the kids visit the Aktur Lunapark (Aktur Amusement Park) where you can ride the merry-go-round, Ferris wheel, and bumper carts. Open since 1986, the park also has some thrill rides for adults like Loop Zone that twirls its passengers around at 30 meters above the ground. As expected there’s also the Fear Tunnel, a train that goes through a haunted castle that is especially enticing at night (but not for the smaller ones in case of nightmares).
