Konyaaltı is a district of Antalya, Turkey. The name "Konyaaltı" (pronounced ), originates from the expression of "koy altı", which in the Turkish language means "the cove down the cliffs".

It is situated beneath the old city of Antalya extending miles toward the west, with various kinds of beaches including sand and shingle. The water is a little cooler compared to other beaches of Antalya because of an underground creek flowing to the sea. There are modern underground facilities for aesthetical reasons. Transportation is easy by means of buses etc. It is reachable by foot as well.
