Beldibi is a seaside resort town in Antalya Province on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey, west of the city of Antalya. It is located halfway between Antalya and Kemer.

Understand

Beldibi is centered around tourism. Most of the town is laid out such that resorts are located along the sea side of Ataturk Caddesi and strip malls are located on the side of the Taurus mountains. The strip malls contain clothing stores, pharmacies, convenience stores, and restaurants.

Get in

Beldibi is accessible from Antalya via the D400 highway which runs along the coast. There is a turn off for Beldibi which connects to Ataturk Caddesi which is the main street through Beldibi. The drive takes roughly 25-35 minutes depending on traffic, which can be heavy close to Antalya. Traffic police patrol the road more frequently than south of Kemer, so avoid speeding.

The cheapest access from Antalya airport is to travel via the public bus (such as line 202) to the bus stop north of the traffic circle near the Migros shopping center located at the intersection of Antalyaspor Altgecidi, Yuzuncu Yil Bulevardi, and the D400 highway. Walk south to the traffic circle and catch the public no. 28 bus towards Kemer (as of 2010, the cost was 2.25TL per person). Alternatively, Sahil buses also travel via Beldibi to Kemer at roughly twice the cost. The public buses are equipped with Google Maps and GPS on a monitor at the front of the bus so it is easy to track your progress. Each leg of this trip takes roughly 45 minutes.

The no.28 bus is operational between 0600 and 2330.

Havas buses can also be taken from the airport, which are faster but cost 17TL/person as of 2010. The last stop on the line is at a taxi/dolmus lot near the Migros shopping center. The return trip can be picked up at the same location, though it starts on the hour at the PTT near the Anafartalar and Konyaalti Caddesi on the Antalya waterfront.

A dolmus from the Migros to Beldibi costs roughly 25TL/person split between 3 passengers.

Get around

Beldibi is not very large, and only has one major street, so it is possible to walk across the entire town. Since most of the business located in Beldibi carry similar selections, it is not necessary to walk more than 10 minutes in any direction from.

Public transportation is via bus no. 28 which travels between Kemer and Antalya and Sahil buses. Taxis and dolmus are also available.

See

Beldibi is focused on the resorts located in the town and does not have attractions itself. There are seaside public parks located nearby the town along the D400.

Do

Buy

Prices in Beldibi are inflated compared to nearby Kemer and Antalya. For example, as of 2010, a jar of jelly costs roughly 6TL in Beldibi, while it costs around 1.5TL in Antalya.

Eat

There are Turkish restaurants along Ataturk Caddesi which provide a pleasant change from the pricey resort restaurants. Memo Restaurant, located across the Club Med south of the main area in Beldibi, has an English speaking proprietor.
