Situated between the airport and Alanya is the small town of Side which dates back to the year 600 BC. At that time the town and its long sand beaches were the hide-out for pirates and slave traders.
 

     Today Side is the newest of the tourist towns in the Antalya region. Side's biggest tourist attractions are the old Roman theatre and the Temple of Apollo. The theatre was built out in the open which is the opposite to most other ancient theatres which were built into the hillside. From the upper seats you therefore have a fantastic view over the ocean, the town and other Roman remains.
