Manavgat is your first point of entry if you plan to get to Side by bus. From Manavgat, some bus companies offer minibuses to Side from otogar (bus station) free of charge. There are also very frequent minibuses (dolmuş) from downtown Manavgat which should not cost much more than a couple of Turkish liras. If you want to go from Antalya you should get on Antalya-Manavgat bus at Antalya Otogar (Bus Terminal) and get off at Side junction (Side Kavsagi). There is a free minibus service that takes people to a parking just beside the historical part of Side.
