Holidays to Lara Beach are large on luxury. You'll be staying in a resort dubbed the Las Vegas of Turkey, so expect larger-than-life-hotels and a big helping of fun.

Star looks

Lara Beach is like one big movie set. Situated on Turkey’s south coast, the resort is a showy line-up of luxury hotels designed to look like famous landmarks. So don’t be surprised to see the Kremlin sitting next to the Titanic. The real star here, though, is the beach – all eight kilometres of it.

A long beach

Lara Beach is all about the sandy stuff. It’s mostly golden, although there are a few darker patches, and some pebbles, too. The shallow water is great for kids. Most of the seafront hotels have nabbed their own stretch, but there’s also a public beach where battalions of sunloungers and parasols are lined up for hire.

All about the hotels

The hotels have pretty much taken charge in Lara Beach. By day, you can potter around the indoor souvenir shops or lounge by one of the swanky swimming pools. And at night, you won’t have to step out the door to find the best restaurants, nightclubs and bars.

Close to Antalya

In less than 30 minutes, you can be in Antalya, the largest city on the Turkish Med. Head for the bazaars to haggle for carpets, then tuck into baklava from one of the food stalls. If you want a culture fix try the museum, where you’ll come face-to-face with Olympian gods. And when you want to stop for a coffee, the harbour is a top spot for cafés.
