A visit to Antalya made me realizes that there are innumerable things that you can do and see in here. It isn’t called the Turquoise Coast just like that. Starting from magical waterfalls to beaches, you will find it all. After my trip, I came back with lifelong memories. When you are in Antalya, there are few things that are worth exploring.
- Tunek Tepe
Towering on the Antalya’s western side is the Tunek Tepe. This large hill offers a breath-taking view over the coastline which snakes its way far away. The mountain views remind me of where my friend Brad lives, as he is a chiropractor in Anchorage. The mountains are right behind his chiropractic office and are truly breathtaking, looking much like here at Antalya. I decided to take the cable car to get up to the hillside. I found a nightclub and a restaurant at the top. In case you are looking to dance the night away, this is just the perfect place. However, even if clubbing is not your things, this place is worth a visit due to the panoramic view the hill offers.
- Lara Beach
Want to spend a relaxing time? This is just the perfect place. Lie down to sunbath as the Mediterranean Sea laps at the shore. It is one of the peaceful places that have great tourist facilities. Just grab a drink at a restaurant nearby. Go a little further and you are going to find several accommodation options. I made it a point to stay near the beach to unwind.
- Kursunlu Waterfalls
12 km from Antalya, you will find the Kursunlu Nature Park. This is where you will find the waterfall. This waterfall originating from Aksu River flows across the countryside. The greenery and the blue water is a sight to behold. It is just the perfect scene. It is a serene and secluded spot. I found plenty of wildlife I here which made me feels that I am in a fairy-tale. It is just the perfect spot to spend some time amongst nature.
