Re: Promenade going through Old Town Side and East Beach soon.

Hi Angela.Just spent the day in Ilica, at the Seasons Complex, sorting out an appt my mate sold.We had our lunch in a restaurant in Side, can't remember the name, but it finished with BABA.It's on the corner of the main road out of Side.Phenomenal meal and the bread was that good I bought 3 loaves, uncut, just like the UK.Not been to Side for 20 odd yrs, liked it then like it still.

Re: Promenade going through Old Town Side and East Beach soon.

I'm so glad you are having a great time in Side. Like you, I first visited years ago ... 12 years ago in fact ... and Yes, I still love it better than anywhere else I have ever been ... and I have been to 135 countries ... there are only 197 countries in the whole world. No plans to visit any more places though. I think I've done enough and Mike absolutely loathes travelling, although he loves it when we arrive at any destination.

The promenade is in full swing, so to speak, now. There are lots of pictures of the destruction on Facebook but I have none to share at present. As you go up the slope from the promenade towards Old Town Side, Pegasus was the first bar/restaurant there ... well, that's been knocked down, along with all the shops, bars and restaurants from Pegasus to Cleopatra Hotel in the heart of the Old Town.

They have also knocked down all the shops, bars and restaurants behind the Apollo Temple going towards East Beach.

And they are also extending the promenade into and beyond Kumkoy.

I was right ... the work is all being done by the typical Turkish ladies with their head scarves and gear on ... Yes, using pick axes whilst the men chat and play games and drink their tea.

We fly back to England this Friday coming, 24th November, and won't be back in Side until 13th March 2018 ... so I do hope it is all finished by then ... should be - easily.

x Angela in Side x

Re: Promenade going through Old Town Side and East Beach soon.

Thanks for the update Angela. Sounds like this will be great for all people who like to take a walk or run in the morning on the promenade. We have an apartment in Kumkoy and have been waiting 7 years for the completion of the promenade so this is fantastic news for us!! Where can we se the pictures of the work/demolition being done?

Here is the story about the promenade and a video of the demolition that is happening now ... http://www.haberci07.com/side-de-yikim-zamani/26075/ ....

And how it looked before they knocked everything down ... https://www.facebook.com/groups/2179...group_activity

And this is Side recently on a sunny day ... https://www.facebook.com/groups/2179...group_activity

Re: Promenade going through Old Town Side and East Beach soon.

Hi Angela, met you the other week in the flying horse when it was raining.
I have heard different about the new promenade going through to the east beach, that is the government is not allowing it as too many old ruins would be disrupted.

Re: Promenade going through Old Town Side and East Beach soon.

Reading this breaks my heart �� ��first came to side 26 years ago on honeymoon and owned an apartment for 12 years. The reason we love it so much is the character and history. My favourite place has always been from Apollo temple to beach especially Apollo temple restaurant I am totally gutted. Side will loose its uniqueness.
Don't think I can bear to see what they are doing
