Phaselis is beautiful ancient city in small forest. There is well preserved amphitheater, agora, hamam and other places. You can also swimm there in clean and hot cove. It´s better visit Phaselis during a week, on weekends it´s quite crowded with many locals.

This is a wonderful place to enjoy a picnic and play with architectural photography. There are not very many people that gather here so it is a pretty quiet and peaceful location.

Interesting but busy! Get here early if you want to avoid the crowds! Small cafe with a limited selection of food and drinks-bring something along if you're picky.

Very nice ancient ruins with beatiful beach. You can get there by ship from Kemer, it is very nice trip, but you have to chose smaller ship, not the large pirate with loud music and russian techno music.

We rent a car from Kemer to get to this place. It's really worth to visit. Read the history of this city. Phaselis has been ruled by different rulers, Persian Empire, Alexnader, Seljukes and Romans.

Phaselis site is on coast with few short rocky beaches. Ruins are well preserved and whole place is much older than another similar place in Side which I was visiting last year. In compare with Side here is more to see and observe but its definitely smaller. There are no services around like refreshments, cafe bar or so. Probably because... More

Stunning ancient ruins with lovely beaches. There is a small cafe and toilets. Beautiful place that we could have spent all day at however our trip only gave us 45 mins. This was a real shame as the sea looked so inviting.

Nestled amongst a pine forest, the ruins at Phaselis are well worth a visit. The layout of the town is typical of the era with the wide main street: houses shops and baths along its edges. In good condition with some helpful signage. A lovely bay at opposite end to the entrance is good for swimming and boating. Worth stopping... More
