Antalya province is located in the southwest of Turkey between dec9° 20’-32°35’ east longitudes and 36° 07’-37° 29’ north latitudes. It is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea to the south and the Taurus Mountains running parallel to the sea to the north, and borders the provinces of Mersin, Konya and Karaman to the east, Isparta and Burdur to the north, and Muğla to the west. The area of the province is about 20.177 km2. This corresponds to 2.6% of the total area of Turkey. Antalya province, located in the west of the Mediterranean Region, accounts for 17.6% of the region's area. On average, 77.8% of the provincial land area is mountainous, 10.2% is lowland, and 12% is hilly. Covering 3/4 of the provincial area, many hills of the Taurus Range exceed 2500-3000 meters. There are extensive plateaus and basins in the Teke region to the west. In the area of these mountains and plateaus, which are mostly composed of limestones, large, small karst shapes such as caves, düdenler, water extractors, dolines, uvalas and wider potholes formed by the melting of limestones, polyes are very common. The variability of the province in terms of topography creates different environments both in terms of climate, agriculture and demography and settlement. These areas, which have separate characteristics, are defined as the coastal and highland regions.
The main transportation to the city is by air and land. Sea routes are still under development. In 2007, the airport added a new terminal. The city has a main port at the south of the Konyaaltı.
