Kemer is very popular among tourists from Russia and Germany, and is still little known among Poles. From the Adrasan water restaurants to hectares of tomato greenhouses in Kumluca, to the ruins of ancient cities such as Demre, it's a good starting point.
When visiting Kemer, it is impossible not to notice how much money has been invested in this city. Currently, it is one of the most famous resorts of the Turkish Riviera, attracting tourists with beaches, most of which are certified with the Blue Flag. In the very center there is a wonderful park, very well-kept, designed with attention to every detail. A walk on it, among the greenery and fountains, is a real pleasure for the eyes.
Another is a stay in Moonlight Park , a place full of greenery and playgrounds, situated right next to the beach. Apart from palm trees and fountains, its advantages are numerous cafes, bars and a small dolphinarium. You can spend the whole day here, what's more, the local disco is thriving. In the immediate vicinity of the pebble beach there is a yacht marina, from which you can go on a cruise around the bay. It is a very picturesque place, especially in the evening when the lights are touching the surface of the water.
The charms of the resort
Kemer impresses with its location. The surrounding slopes are covered with forests, and the rocky peaks are exceptionally dignified above the turquoise sea. The coast consists of numerous coves and the water is crystal clear. The picturesque landscape is complemented by mountains, which in many places fall into the sea almost vertically.
It is not surprising that such a beautiful place has tempted tourists for years. Vacationers from abroad were the first to discover it, which gives it an advantage over neighboring resorts, just building their brand. Visitors praise the high level of service in local hotels and the ease of access both from the international airport in Antalya and to nearby attractions.
Attractions of the area
When visiting Kemer, it is also worth going to the town of Tekirova. It can be reached in 20 minutes by car. It is not crowded here even in high season, which allows you to enjoy a quiet holiday. One of the biggest attractions of the resort is Tekirova Ecological Natural Park , the world's first eco park where you can admire endangered plants and amphibians. It is open from May 1 to October 12. It covers an area of 40,000 m² and is home to coral snakes, cobras, mamba, anacondas, giant lizards and many other creatures under strict protection. There are also scorpions, tarantulas, iguanas and Nile crocodiles. As for flora, the park has over 360,000 species of plants, trees and shrubs from all over the world.
A little closer to the resort are the ruins of the ancient city of Phaselis . We will see them after purchasing an admission ticket to the National Park on which they are located. In the past, roses were grown here, while today tourists can walk along the old ancient road, among stones with inscriptions carved on them. In a shaded pine grove there are also bathhouses, a theater (best preserved) and an impressive aqueduct from the 1st century AD
Traces of the past can also be found in Myra , today called Demre. Before entering the city, you can see ancient rock tombs, but it is worth taking a closer look at them. The local population believed that death and the funeral connected with it was not the end, but the beginning of a new road. For this reason, the tombs, tombs and sarcophagi she built were impressive and rich.
Campsites in Kemer
When looking for accommodation, you can consider hotels in the resort itself and in the vicinity. Kiris has an exceptionally rich offer, which can even be called a hotel town, just like the Beldibi and Goynuk resorts. If you would like to stay at a campsite, you may be interested in the Engin Pension in Cirali, approx. 15 km south of Kemer. In the off-season, you can spend the night here for about 10.5 euro (the price includes accommodation for 2 people and a motorhome pitch).
As one internet user put it, “in Turkey every town is close to something worth seeing. In Kemer, it is close to Antalya, Demre, Kalekoy Island and beautiful Thatali, which can be seen from almost anywhere ”. Nothing more nothing less.
