Kadriye beach is about 5 minutes drive from Kadriye town centre. Local buses run quite frequently and taxis are not expensive. Kadriye beach has changed a lot in the past 10 years; some for the better, some not so.New hotel developments have encroached on the beach, restricting the area available to local residents and visitors to the beach.
In particular the picnic area and BBQ spots, very popular with the local Turkish population,have been considerably reduced.However,you can still find a quiet spot during the week for some alfresco dining.
Swimming and sunbathing. During the peak Summer months, the Mediterranean sea is quite warm to swim in.What's more," the Med" does not have a noticeable tide, so the water's edge is always close by.There are a limited number of free sunbeds available at the near end entrance to the beach.
Beach activities. Parasailing,jet skies, go karts, "bumpy rides", etc are all available at Kadriye beach.Obviously the weekends are the busiest times,so you might be able to negotiate a price during quiet week days. Otherwise it's about 100YTL for a 15 minute Jet ski or a go on the parasailing.
If you fancy something a little different to swimming and sunbathing, there are other activities in the beach area.
You can also book adventure trips at the beach for water rafting, jeep safaris, and so on.
A day at the beach can be so relaxing. Kadriye Beach is a nice break from your villa or hotel and it's not far to get to..It's about 5 minutes from Kadriye town centre, about 7 minutes from Belek. About 5 or 6 minutes from Fairways Villas. Dolmus (buses) run to the beach, cost about 3 lira one way. Taxis are easy too, and reasonable.Expect to pay about 15 lira from Kadriye, about 20 lira from Belek.
Most taxi drivers are fair and honest, but it's worth establishing the fare price before setting off.the prices above give you a guide, and major taxi ranks will usually have prices displayed prominently nearby.
While most taxis are standard design,with 4 passenger seats, many have 2 extra seats in the back so can carry upto 6 persons.
However you travel, you'll pass by the amazing Rixos Land of Legends,which is a must visit for everyone.
