Old City Marina
4.5
About
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, which forms the basis of Antalya and get a special view of the landmarks from down below.

We visitied the Old City of Antalya after almost 20 years from our first visit, while in our golf week in Belek. First time we were impressed but this time we were really delighted by the beautifully refurbished mix of traditional, monument and religious buildings (e.g. Hadrian Arch, mosques and towers, fortress) surrounded everywhere by full of charm restaurants and interior gardens, paved streets, excellent restaurants and small parks with views towards Taurus Mountains and the Golf of Antalya. A really amazing place, very well refurbished for the joy of turists and locals. A place not to be missed if you are in Antalya or around.

The old Marina is set at the foot of Kaleici old town in Antalya. Passing a picturesque bazaar you descend a steep hill via alleys or steps and reach the horseshoe shaped marina.
During the day many boat excursions start from here, while at night it's more relaxing with cafes and restaurants you can visit.

During my recent visit I took the time to view the old marina had a drink in one of the cliff side cafes overlooking the boats, restaurants &shops below. Even though we were visiting in January the sea was calm the sun shining and the atmosphere relaxing. Watching the boats out at sea and gliding back into the sheltered harbour. Wish I had more time to wonder around the water front but definitely next time.

This is a general comment from a person, family that calls this city a 'Second Home' after 10-12 years. The pollution at night in the winter months has become unbearable and I would think almost at dangerous levels. Something has changed in the last 1-2 years. You can not leave the window of your home open at night for fresh or clean air. The matter should be addressed by the authorities, as I would imagine, personal livelihoods and health would be at stake in the long run

December -Feb months are the worst. which is a shame when the nights; with calm sea and moon, are spectacular and a peaceful to view from this corner of the world, yet the smell can be terrible, if not for the health of Antalya inhabitants.

I understand the pollution is due to greenhouses burring coal and any other matter on hand that they can find (that is cheap), to keep greenhouses temperatures high, encouraging agriculture growth (fruit and veggies).

Hope this matter can be addressed at soonest. I not want to return with this bad air in these months.

The marina is a well resored area where the ancient and first harbour of the cıty was located. Use your imagination to see the pebbly beach where trıremes would have been pulled up and Roman cargo boats loading and offloading wonder things from all over the empire. There are many cafes for a cold drink and fish restaurants for seafood. The old town is quite atmospheric.

We got a taxi here from Lara Beach and it was well worth it.
The marina is really picturesque and you can get to the old town easily from there.
There’s lots of shops nearby although you literally get hounded to go in them all which can get a bit annoying when all you want to do is have a browse/ stroll pass.

Access to the marina is steep. Once there, the nice setting is rather ruined by the number of tour boats offering trips. The setting could be really nice but they haven't made the most of it. Usual cheap tourist tat and restaurants.

We spent a day in the Old Town was beautiful and picturesque lots of amazing places to visit, we walked to Adrina Gate and the wonderful restaurants hidden away in the sidestreets. There is a huge market/bazaar too where you can buy almost anything we'll worth going lots of traditional Turkish gifts. We would highly recommend going!

You don't need a taxi from the Old Town everything you can easily get to by foot.

Great for a walk, the scenery is beautiful with a view on the sea and the mountains. There are many restaurants to choose from and places to have a drink. You can also pay for a boat trip, overall a great place to spend time with family.

Beautiful old city of Kaleici in Antalya. Laidback very friendly and safe place. The old town has a myriad of lovely quaint lanes to wander along. There are plenty of restaurants to choose from and shops to choose from. Highly recommend a visit to this place.
