Wondering what you and your kids will do in Antayla. Turns out there’s plenty to keep you all occupied and here’s 5 of the best.

1 Take A Trip To Sandland

This is something you have to visit whether you have kids trailing after you or not. Considered the largest open-air sand sculpture exhibition in the world, this wonderful mix of sand and imagination is a fantastical experience.  It’s open daily and takes three weeks of creation to complete each year, culminating in an overall theme, with past ones being ‘Legends’ and ‘Empires’.

You will be astonished at the craftmanship and beauty of these larger than life creations, and the kids will doubtless be enthralled at the wonderland they’ve found themselves in.

2 Visit The Antalya Toy Museum

Situated near the Antalya harbour area, you can wander in after a walk around the pretty harbour and reminisce about your childhood while also showing your mesmerised children how times have changed. You’ll find great themed areas including the wild west zone and even a quirky kitchen scene!
