Belek is surrounded by Aspendos a few kilometers to the east, Sillyum to the west and Selge to the north. It offers a rich historic environment that greatly enhances the holiday experience of visitors. However, the region is not only known for its historical richness.
The Turkmen nomads, who use the area around Serik as their traditional winter quarters, have only recently become sedentary. This can also explain the long-lasting relationship between the Turkmens and the highlands. Serik and its surroundings are among the most important regions where tourists interested in culture, rather than just leisure and entertainment, can witness the traditional lifestyles of the villages and highlands.
