Kemer, one of the most famous districts of Antalya, is a Mediterranean district 40 km from the city center.
The district was a small village until the early 1980s. With the facilities opened in the last 20 years, it has become one of the most important centers of Turkish tourism.
Kemer district, which lies at the foot of the Western Taurus Mountains and along the coastline of 52 kilometers, is one of the most important tourism centers in Turkey.
The oldest historical past of Kemer dates again to 690 BC. The inspiration of the traditional metropolis of Phaselis relies on this date.
One among Kemer’s primary sights is its pure magnificence. Sea, forest and mountains converge at one point. The clarity of the sea, the greenery of the forest, the sea waves reaching up to the pine trees and the use of pine trees as a shade on the beaches are very attractive. Your complete coast from Beldibi to Tekirova is a very pure seaside. There are many coves and small natural harbors on its indented coasts. Beaches in the center of Kemer are the Belediye beach and the Moonlight Beach next to the marina. It is possible to swim easily in places such as Phaselis beach, which is a national park and where the ancient city is still standing.
It is possible to reach the nearby ancient cities of Olympos and Phaselis from Kemer. In recent years, safari tours to high places such as Söğüt Cuması, Altınyaka and Dereköy have also attracted a lot of attention.
Kemer also has an important place in yacht tourism with its modern marina with a capacity of 320 yachts. The marina and its 52 km coastline were awarded the Blue Flag by meeting the criteria set by the European Foundation for Environmental Education.
