Sunny day off, +20°C on the thermometer, the weather shows that spring has come to Antalya. And this means that it’s time to spend Saturday on the Mediterranean coast.

While somewhere in Erzurum people are fastening their ski boots, the inhabitants of Lara prefer the sandy beach of the same name and occupy the barbecue area for a picnic, and the inhabitants of the Konyaalti region take the best places on the pebble beach closer to the water.

For many, the water at +18 degrees seems very cold for swimming. But there are those for whom the swimming season in Antalya is year-round and does not close at all. Therefore, you can meet swimming people along the entire coast.

The “beautiful half” of beach visitors apparently did not hope for such a hot day and few dared to get last year’s swimsuits out of the closets. Therefore, people got the first tan of the beginning season simply by rolling up their sleeves and making tops out of T-shirts.

Some residents of Antalya believe that a tan should be “laid down and put on” on a body that is taut for the season. Therefore, with the advent of spring, many people remember their favorite sport, a dusty bike or long walks.
