Incredible Sand Festival - at Lara Beach -

Fifth International Antalya Sand Festival

04 Jun 2014 - 14 Nov 2014

Place: Lara Beach Park - buy tickets there -

This year the theme of the festival is ‘Hollywood’.As well as the legendary stars of Hollywood, memorable scenes from epic Hollywood movies will also be sculpted from sand. A large area of 7,000 square meters will be held specifically for a 25-meter-long dinosaur that will be made out of sand. The exhibition will resemble a dream and special effects lighting and sound effects at night will surely create a wonderland-like scenery. Around 20 million visitors are expected to visit the exhibition.

Hi Angela

Are there any trips being organised for this, or is it the case of making your own way to Antalya?

Thanks

No - there are no organised trips that go here unfortunately - and I really don't know why. We have been the last 3 years - just got 4 of us together and hired a car - journey is about 45 minutes there and entrance fee about 10 TL each -

I can back that up.

We went last year and the sculptures are superb. I have no idea why the hotels don't organise trips there as they are a great place for the whole family to visit.

You can get refreshments there. Not expensive and also a few shops selling souvenirs.

Great photo opportunities
