Belek Tourism Center, 36km (22 miles) east of Antalya and just south of Serik on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast (map), is a planned seaside resort with beaches, luxury hotels, lush golf courses and other vacation-time amusements.
The plan was to attract avid golfers from around the world to a Mediterranean resort planned with golfers in mind, but also close to many other attractions.
Hundreds of villas large and small compete for road frontage and water sources with the large hotels. Like the large hotels, the villa compounds are gated communities open only to property owners or guests. This makes it particularly well adapted to the security requirements of important world meetings, such as the G-20 meeting of presidents and prime ministers that took place here on November 15-16, 2015.
