Deciding where to buy property in Antalya, Turkey boils down to two factors. Your lifestyle preferences and budget, but one thing is for sure. You have masses of places to choose from. Fronted by the Mediterranean Sea and backed by the tranquil Taurus mountains, Antalya offers copious amounts of sunshine and an ideal place on the Turquoise Turkish riviera and easily attracts buyers looking at investing in property. The Antalya region stretches for 500 kilometres along the southern coastline and within this are many towns, villages, and the city centre.
All places offer something unique and attract a specific buyer, whether it is investment properties to buy, a luxury villa for sale in Kalkan or budget beachfront homes in Mahmutlar.

However, in the meantime, here is a full list of the 19 districts in Antalya, but in this article, we look at prominent places, their reasons for attracting house buyers, and how to find a property that suits you.
Konyaalti is in the city's heart, but don't assume its central location evokes an urban lifestyle of the hustle and bustle because it also is home to one of Turkey's best beaches, along with the Lara beach district. The name translates as cove down the cliffs, and recent modernisation projects have propelled its real estate market to become the most active in the region.
Sitting near the old town, residents also have access to a wide range of shops, bars, restaurants, and banks. An effective transport system also links Konyaalti to other districts. Given its beach is 7 kilometres long and gives off a stunning Beydaglari mountain view, Konyaalti is the focal point of social life and includes many beach parks backed by shops, restaurants, and bars. To buy a property in Konyaalti is to tap into an ideal place and beach-side lifestyle, and a duplex apartment overlooking the Mediterranean is the perfect view to wake up to.
Sitting at the far eastern side of the region, Alanya is a bustling city and ideal for buying a property. However, one place, Mahmutlar, stands out as an ideal destination to purchase property. Located 10 kilometres from Alanya town centre, Mahmutlar's population is boosted to 60,000 plus people when holiday homeowners and tourists descend on the region during summer.
The local council has modernised roads and infrastructure to cope with growing interest, and Mahmutlar now presents itself as an ideal place to buy real estate in Antalya. Residents also have access to a gorgeous 5-kilometre beach, the focal point of daily life. In addition, residential property prices are affordable in Mahmutlar and ideal for any home buyer looking for a buy to let property. (Homes in Alanya.)
While Mahmutlar earns a reputation for budget and first-time buyers, Kalkan, in the opposite direction, is Turkey's Mediterranean gem and a hub of luxury properties. The real estate market features apartments for sale, but most houses for sale in Kalkan are large 4 to 6-bedroom villas with private swimming pools, landscaped gardens, and floor to ceiling windows to make the most of that fantastic sea view.
A small select group of foreign homeowners has even gone as far as to move to prestigious Kalkan and now enjoy the diversity of four seasons all year round. Investment property buyers have six districts to choose from, including the old town with its traditional white stone cottages. Ortalaan, the hub, secluded Kisla with its millionaire mansions and Kiziltas offers unrivalled views. (Properties for sale in Kalkan.)
Pristine Side was built around historic ruins, therefore stands out with a certain nostalgic ambience. Sitting 45 minutes from Antalya Airport, Brits, German, and Russian tourists favour the place and often look at property for sale. Boasting of the landmark Apollo temple, Side's splattering of modern bars, restaurants, and shops, make it an ideal place to invest in property, along with the low-key nightlife and slow-paced daily routine. Property owners and golfing fans need to only head down the road to Belek, the golfing capital of Turkey.
Recent years has seen a new promenade and modernised streets improve the overall appearance, and thanks to building rules, property to buy is no taller than four stories high; Side will always keep its village-like ambience. When residents want to step it up a notch, they often head to other places like the nearby town of Manavgat that has waterfalls, a more extensive selection of shops, supermarkets, and household stores. Favourite places to buy property in Side include Ilica, Colakli, Kumkoy, and Evrenseki. (More about Side in Mediterranean Turkey.)
To purchase a property in Belek is to invest in Turkey's golfing capital. Many gated communities are within walking distance of some of the best golf courses in the world. Given its reputation, some people look at homes for sale to own a rental property for golfing holidays. Belek also has a large expat community that live there all year round. New build luxury villas are the norm on the home-buying scene, yet a new trend has emerged to buy land and custom design your property in recent years. Despite Belek's reputation, any first-time buyer will find the average property-price, a big lure. Another significant advantage is that Antalya international airport is just 30 minutes’ drive away.
