A Paradise in Antalya

Kemer is at the center of the Southern Antalya Tourism Project, where accommodation facilities with high star numbers such as Beldibi, Göynük, Kiriş and Tekirova are located on the coastline extending in the north-south direction to the west of the Gulf of Antalya. Kemer and its surrounding tourism centers, named after the villages built at the foot of the hard-built mountains rising just behind the rows of sandy beaches on the west of the bay, today provide quality holiday services to guests of all nationalities, whose number is increasing year by year.

A Turquoise Sea

High quality infrastructure investments made over the years in the Southern Antalya Tourism Region, which stretches along the coastal road between Antalya and the western provinces of Muğla, have made the region one of the most important holiday centers not only in Turkey but also in the world. With the tunnels opened on the highway connecting Kemer Tourism Region to Antalya and Muğla in the west, and with the remedial measures taken, transportation has become safer and in a shorter time. Many beaches along the coast, with infrastructure provided, offer the opportunity to swim in the sea for the day, as well as for local people and foreign guests.

Ancient Geography

Kemer region, like other tourism centers around Antalya, is not just a holiday environment consisting of sea, sun and sand: Phaselis, the ancient city with three ports, on the west coast of Antalya, and Chimera, the unquenchable fire of Lycia, to the west. Çıralı Beach, which it illuminates incessantly during the day, and the city of Olympos next to it, used by the famous pirate Zeniketes as a base… Adrasan Bay, which descends from a mountain road with an extraordinary view leaving the Antalya-Muğla highway, is separated from Finike-Kumluca Bay in the west by Gelidonya Cape. A number of ancient cities, including Rhodiapolis in Kumluca, Limyra in Finike and Arykanda further north, offer the privilege of experiencing an extraordinary historical geography over time, as well as the opportunity to experience the visual beauties on daily tours, for tourists staying in elite recreation centers in and around Kemer.

High Plateaus, Mountains and Rivers

The "high plateau geography" behind Beldibi, Göynük, Kemer, Kiriş, Tekirova and even Adrasan was an integral part of the production and living space of the people of the region until recently. Today, the same geography gives foreign tourists staying on the beach the opportunity to get to know the Anatolian people in their old production and living environment. In the Göynük and Kuzdere canyons in the Kemer region, the unusual natural formations created by the water on the rocks arouse admiration among the tourists staying in the surrounding facilities. Swimming in the natural pools in the canyons during the hot summer months is a privilege for visitors. Gedelme Plateau to the north of Kuzdere Canyon and the springs of Alakır River further on offer unique opportunities for those who want to experience the sea and the mountain together.

Explore by Cable Car

On the Gedelme Plateau, the Monument Sycamore Tree, whose circumference reaches approximately fifteen meters, is named after this plateau; The Gedelme Sycamore… The ancient castle next to the monumental tree, like two sphinxes, one living and the other dead, keep watch over time together. Above, at altitudes above a thousand meters, there is a dense forest cover formed by cedar, juniper and larch trees that are as old as mythological ages. The cable car, which was built on Tahtalı Mountain, on which Kemer and its surroundings lean, with its head in the sky and its skirts in the Mediterranean, offers a service not only for those staying on these beaches, but also for those who come from far and near. The cable car line offers the privilege of watching the magnificent nature of the Antalya Gulf and the Taurus Mountains, stretching to the east and west from the summit of Tahtalı Mountain at 2300 meters.
