An area of five-star hotels along Turkey’s stunning Mediterranean coast, Belek Kempinski is among the country’s most magnificent strips of beach. Belek itself is home to some of the country’s best golf courses, top entertainment facilities and other tourism services, and attracts around 30 million visitors per year. The resort town has a stunning backdrop of forested hills that is home to waterfalls, caves and beautiful scenery, while the magnificent ancient city of Aspendos is just to the northeast of Belek Kempinski. The beach and town itself are easy enough to explore on foot though a car rental can provide visitors with a way to get around the entire region and visit other beaches along the Mediterranean coast.

This is especially true when travelling between the beach and Belek town centre. Still, a car is the best way to travel around the town as well as explore other parts of the region, with the D400 linking it west to Antalya and east to Manavgat. All resorts in Belek Kempinski provide parking for their guests and parking is available right at the beach.
