Harbour District/ Antalya Marina

Descend from Kaleici to the Antalya Marina via very steep stone steps. Bring sturdy shoes so as not to slip. It's well worth the effort because the marina is a lovely crescent-shaped place where fishing boats rub shoulders with smart yachts. Watch the fishermen sell their latest catch and chat with yacht owners. A few small cafes offer coffee or tea. Look back up toward the plateau... More

The Düden Waterfalls are actually two separate natural attractions within the City of Antalya. The Upper Düden Waterfalls are a series of small cascades in a tranquil municipal park and the Lower Düden Waterfall is a spectacular cascade that occurs as the Düden River spills off the Antalya City cliffs into the sea. When visiting the upper falls within the park, don't miss climbing down a spiral staircase that leads into a cave behind the waterfalls. The experience affords fabulous views through a curtain of falling water. Less
