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

A wonderful couple of hours spent exploring the ruins, swimming in the sea and walking the hills made this afternoon trip one of the best days out of the holiday. Easy to reach by bus from Kemer this is worth the effort.

Phaselis is a divine and shady combination of ancient city ruins and national park, surrounding a scenic and heritage laden small bay. Having explored the wonderful antiquities, we ventured for a stroll along the glorious beach and enjoyed watching the tall, tourist filled ships, as well as our fellow travellers enjoying a swim in the azure and calm waters. There... More

About the place...AMAZING! Nature. Antique. Clean. Water. Take your swimsuit but be careful with the stones under water. Great place to spend all day outside, chill and... More

Turkey has a lot of ancient greek and roman cities- it's amazing, but to be honest we have visited enough of them to get really impressed of it. We came to Phaselis to spend a day off, didn't expect much but somehow have got this "wow" impression. I really loved the ruins, it's all between high trees! And the beaches... More
