I spent a week in Side together with my girlfriend, june 18-25. I want to warn everybody not to go on the boat trips from Side harbour to Manavgat and the dolphin tour. They are tourist traps! Both these trips were very boring - the Manavgat river is very dirty and nothing to see. Also, the crew on the ship Calypso VIP were really rude - we made two trips with this ship - and they dumped us, two days in a row, on some beach instead of taking us back to Side harbour with the boat, as was promised. I do recommend the rafting excursion to the mountains however, it was beautiful.
