    Kemer

    Kemer is a seaside town on the outskirts of the West Taurus Mountains that run along 52 kilometers of coastline, where a deeply entrenched history dances with breathtaking natural beauty. At Kemer, you’ll find clear blue water, green forests, and pine trees washed by sea waves that cast their shadows on the beaches. The coast from Beldibi to Tekirova presents visitors with entirely untouched nature. The shore consists of numerous bays and small natural ports. You can go for a swim in Phaselis National Park, where the ancient city reveals its spirit. In recent years, safari tours in high-altitude regions - including Söğüt Cuması, Altınyaka, and Dereköy - have grown in popularity. Kemer hosts a large number of events throughout the year, ranging from sports competitions to artistic gatherings such as the Phaselis Art Festival, Türkiye Offshore Championship, and the Kemer Carnival to name just a few.

    The town’s numerous bays include Beldibi Cave and Bay, Ayışığı Beach and Park, Kiriş Beach, Çamyuva Coast, Alacasu Bay, Cennet Bay, Bostanlık Bay, Tekirova Beach, Mehmetali Bükü Bay, Beycik Bükü Bay, and Maden (Atbükü) Bay.

    Adrasan/Çavuş Port

    What comes to mind when we say Adrasan? A stunning 2-kilometer-long beach and a clear blue sea? Or perhaps the forest-covered mountains surrounding the bay? Or the Lycian Way, one of the world's greatest hiking trails? Adrasan is enclosed by the Gelidonya Lighthouse on the west and Olympos, Çıralı, and Çıralı Yanartaş to the east. In Adrasan, also known as Çavuşköy, tourism is the main source of income, and tourists are always greeted warmly. Adrasan is also a hotspot for fishing enthusiasts. In recent years, the area has become one of the most important sailing and yachting ports of Antalya - it’s no surprise that "Suluada Boat Trips'' have played a big role in this. The fishing boats that gather in Balıkçılar Bay organize private tours. Suluada is located between the Adrasan coast and Taşlıkburnu, where the Gelidonya Lighthouse stands, 2 kilometers offshore. The name “Suluada” (literally “Water Island”) is a reference to the vast water sources on the island. There are no settlements on Suluada, and as a result it is home to all kinds of fish of the Mediterranean ecosystem. The island contains several underwater caves nestled with Mediterranean monk seals and dusky groupers. It is possible to swim to the other side of the island through the Aşıklar Mağarası (Lovers' Cave) located at the tip of the island.

    Nearby bays: Olympos Bay, Boncuk Bay, Suluada, Akseki Bay, Korsan Bay (Çoban Port), Sazak Bay, Yalancı Bay, and Genoese Bay.
