EXPLORE Destination Antalya
PHASELIS: Visit the ruins of Phaselis and its gorgeous beaches. This ancient Lycian city is on the outskirts of Kemer town and it is reached by road or sea. Once ruled by Alexander the Great, Phaselis was an important trading point and this is evident in the ruins of the main market street stretching from one harbor to another. Remains also include the amphitheater and houses. If ancient ruins are not your idea of fun, pack a picnic and spend the day lying on two gorgeous beaches.
CIRALI: Steeped in mystery and intrigue, the burning flames of Chimaera are near the resort of Cirali. Flames burn from rocks for 24 hours a day and in ancient times, they provided light to ships fearful of crashing on rocks. Simple science explains this natural wonder. Gases oozing from cracks in the rocks ignite with air causing flames to burn every day, all day no matter how many times they are extinguished.
TAHTALI: Go from sea to sky by using cable car to travel up Mount Tahtali. From there, marvel at amazing panoramic views of the coastline and Taurus Mountains. During winter, choose to ski down or if you are a daredevil with a head for heights, paraglide down instead.
