Phaselis was an ancient Greek and Roman city dating back to 700BC. It was a major seaport. If visiting by car it is signed off the D400 main road. You drop down the road
and pay at a kiosk then drive to the large parking area adjacent the runs.
The runs are quite extensive There is a theatre and bath houses and the remains of a very wide main street leadign down to the beach. It is easy to see that this was a perfect port as it is very sheltered and very attractive to view . Not much in the way of facilities but there are toilets

So much history here it was fascinating to see. It was a lovely walk and there was a nice beach.

From reading the reviews I couldn't tell if the buses go past it entrance and down to the site as it new it was some distance. To be sure we got a Cab from our hotel and he took us right to the site. I didn't see a bus while I was here so might be worth getting a cab to save that long walk.

We paid 30tl pp which is well worth it, the only problem was we couldn't find an information guide.

I really enjoyed hiking in the area - views are spectacular, beaches clean and warm. The ruins themselves are also quite impressive

Very nice place to visit if you enjoy learning more about history. The place seems to be popular with locals who come there all geared up for a day on the beach.

The trip to Phaselis was amazing. The antique places to take photos were great. The two neavjss just a few meters away were fabulous and the water was so clear

Visited by car [20TL pp]. The ruins are interesting to look round but most visitors were locals there for the day [saturday] to picnic and swim in one of the 3 beachs. They had all the gear-tables, chairs, tents etc. There were no sunbeds and the ground was not really suitable for lying on a towel so we just had a swim and left for a proper beach.

One of the best thematic beach to swim. It is an ancient city, with great amphitheater, Odeon and everything yet, unbelievable beach. If you could go early or stay late you will enjoy better.

Loved wandering around some well preserved ruins. The setting of the pine forest and beaches was amazing. The beach could do with a little clean up but I wouldn't say it was dirty. Some may get annoyed by the party boats that stop at such a peaceful location but for me it wasn't too bad.

Photographer went straight to the children to photograph and while he was pleasant and friendly, you could tell he was playing us to buy the picture. For a few lira though I didn't mind.

A must visit for everyone.
