Opening up

Turquoise waters, Mediterranean coastline and imposing Taurus mountain range in the background: Antalya’s natural beauty rightly earned it the nickname, “Gateway to the Turkish Riviera”. But with major diplomatic meetings and infrastructure projects in the pipeline, the coastal town is now proving that it can also be a centre of culture, hospitality and sports. We visit a new contemporary art gallery, independent hotels and cafés, as well as the 14 verdant golf courses of Belek – including the Montgomerie Maxx, host of this year’s exciting Turkish Airlines Open.
