    Side Beach for September

    Although Side has just two beaches, it does not mean that they are not worth going to. West Beach is a sandy beach that is about 30 km long and is usually more popular than East Beach. There are plenty of facilities here and visitors can rent sunbeds and umbrellas. The water here tends to be calmer and shallower than at East Beach, making it great for swimming and for children.

    Water sports are popular here as well, with activities like parasailing, waterskiing, and snorkeling frequently seen, in addition to diving and boat tours. Although this beach is popular and crowded this time of year, since there is 30 km of beach space, it is possible to find an area that is more secluded. The beach is lined by several cafés and restaurants, most serving local cuisine using fresh products. West Beach can be easily reached by foot and there is a recently completed boulevard that stretches the entire length of the beach.
