The famous Lara beach is one of the longest sand beaches in Turkey and is located in the district of Antalya. Lara is the home to many themed 5 to 7 star hotels, mainly in the Kundu area. Most of the hotels are replicas of famous places around the world (for example Topkapi Palace, Venice, Kremlin), which has led to the area being nicknamed "Las Vegas in Turkey". Most parts of the beach are backed by commercial services offering beach chairs, sun umbrellas, snacks and drinks, showers and entertainment. The region around Antalya offers sights of astonishing natural beauty as well as awesome historical remains. Visitors can walk behind the cascade, a thrilling experience, at the Upper Düden Waterfalls, 14 km northeast of Antalya. On the way to Lara Beach, the Lower Düden Waterfalls plunge straight into the sea. The nearby rest area offers an excellent view of the falls and the view is even more spectacular from the sea.
