After leaving Antalya’s Yacht Harbor by boat
and following the cliffs that stretch along 13 kilometers
of the coastline, what do you say to plunging into
their deep caves?
As you enter Antalya you are greeted by a sign
that says “Altitude: 30.” This 30-meter
difference between sea level and the city is the
height of the cliffs on which it is built. These
cliffs, which set Antalya apart from other coastal
towns, are 13 kilometers long and from 30 to 50
meters high, a sight well worth taking in for the
And the easiest way to enjoy the cliffs from up
close is to make a short trip by sea. To do that,
it’s enough to go down to Antalya’s
oldest harbor, now called the Yacht Harbor, and
cock an ear for the boatmen’s call “Selaleye
gider”—“To the waterfall!”
And after your boat leaves, filled with tourists
from a variety of countries, all you have to do
is lean back and let your eyes wander.
On this boat trip you will have a chance to see
not only the cliffs, every square meter of which
is a natural wonder, but also a number of points
that dot them.
