Wink Side how you have changed

Visited Side this September and was amazed at what has been achieved since May 2017.
The walkway improvements together with the glass flooring in the old town is great but some of the magic has gone from the old town.
I know that places and people will change over time but Side is becoming much like any other resort on the Med but I do like you free bus from the Dolmus station to the taxi park in the old town.
Further out of town pockets of the old magic are still there such as the'Kingfisher' and the numerous small bars and eating houses.
Overall I again enjoyed my two weeks holidaying in Side and we will return next year. I feel that the west beach should be available to the locals and not being restricted to hotels with sunbeds and canopies especially the RAGASIDE. Business of filling the whole beach with sunbed facilities and not letting the locals also use them is not healthy to different people interacting.
We as tourists need interaction with the local people much more. I have found you all very friendly and inviting over the 25 years I have been visiting Turkey and especially Side and I feel the changes being made you are loosing some of this magic. Loved Side back in the 1990's and love it today, don't westernise too much keep your culture.

I agree with your comments. Shame about all the hotels and restaurants claiming the beach and charging a fortune for a sunbed! Thats too western for a start; who owns a beach! Modernizing is good but not to try and copy Benidorm - haha

Re: Side how you have changed

The other issue here is that someone is paid for cleaning the beach too.

Re: Side how you have changed

I was in Side a few weeks ago and whilst impressed with the upgrades to the town centre I was disappointed with the way the hotels have encroached on the beech. There was simply nothing left for us and the locals to use Id never go there for a beech trip again

Still pretty quirt compared to a few years ago but selfishly that was a good thing for us
