“Beautiful but short trip”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

The sight is beautiful but apart from the waterfall there is absolutely nothing to do or see. It takes 15 to 20 min to see it and take pictures. Then you climb back up and have an option to sit in a cafe with the rest of the tourists and have coffee or tea. Enjoy!

“magical park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

lovely place - and perfect to cool off especially by the waterfall. We were only there for a short visit at the end of day out with Nirvana tours (recommend them) but when we return to Antalya we will definitely go there for a day and take a picnic.

“cool and beautiful break from the heat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

I went to Kursunlu park on a blazingly hot weekday in June. After spending the morning in the scorching sun at the Perge ruins nearby, we needed a little shade and thought the falls might be a refreshing break. There were a few people there, but not the hoardes of tourists that others have warned about in their reviews.
The falls and trails along the river past the "little falls" were gorgeous. We saw a lot of animals (turtles and frogs and lizards and a kingfisher and other great birds) down by the water, and even saw some land tortoises up in the drier areas along the top of the ridge.
We brought a picnic and ate on some large rocks along the river with our toes hanging into the cold water. It was wonderful.
The falls are not huge (and of course the large waterfall is the most touristy and crowded area in the park) but it is very lush, green and beautiful around the falls and along the river and it is a nice break from beaches and historical sites.

“An amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

I went to the Kursunlu waterfalls during my stay in Antalya and this is a very beautiful place, I really loved it! There's an air of calm about this place and it's very clean and well looked after.

The waterfalls are not that big, although very lovely and surrounded by beautiful vegetation. Wonderful lime green ponds (or "lagoons") filled with clear water holds lots of fish, and if you're lucky you might see turtles swimming around as well! The views are just amazing!

There is a big park with lots of tables and barbecue pits it you want to grill your own food, or rest for a while. If you want to buy something to eat or drink, there is a shop to be found inside the park, and the prices are not much above avarage.

If you have any kind of mobility issues this attraction might not be a suitable for you, because there's lots of stair climbing and walking to be done. Some paths are slippery, bumpy and rough.

If you want to go to these waterfalls from the Antalya city centre, you'll have to take the tram that goes to Meydan. Meydan is the last stop with the tram, and when you arrive you'll notice that there is a bus station on your right side. Bus number 524 from Meydan will take you to the Kursunlu Waterfalls.

Note: A local guy told me that the water leves might be quite low during summer.

Prices in Turkish Lira for this attraction (april 2013):
Entrance Fee: 3,5 TL
Tram: 2 TL (one way)
Bus: 2 TL (one way)

Have a great time and enjoy!
