Explore Natural Beauty at Waterfalls
If you’re looking for a little break from the monotony of everyday life, look no further than Antalya’s stunning waterfalls. The Köprülü Canyon National Park, located 25km from the city center, contains four different waterfalls. The largest of the cascades is called Manavgat waterfall and is particularly beautiful. It is situated at the end of the Köprülü Canyon, whose cliffs soar up to 300 meters. In addition to being known as one of the most breathtaking sights in all of Antalya, the Manavgat waterfall provides a refreshing swimming spot on hot summer days.
The second waterfall of Köprülü Canyon National Park is Duden Falls, which flows directly into the Mediterranean Sea. This wonderful natural phenomenon cascades over a 20-meter-high cliff into the sea and never fails to amaze its visitors with its majestic beauty. The Duden River is one of Antalya’s main sources of irrigation and provides perfect spots for fishing or just enjoying a peaceful afternoon by its banks.
Visitors to Köprülü Canyon National Park can also explore another two falls – Upper and Lower Düden Falls – both of which are situated closer to residential areas and are great spots to cool off in summer. All these waterfalls make Antalya one of Turkey’s top destination for sightseeing, swimming, photography and general outdoor recreation.

Tahtalı Mountain boasts one of Antalya’s most amazing natural attractions – inspiring views of white-capped mountain tops and turquoise splashes of Mediterranean Sea that stretch as far as the eye can see. Riding the 20-minute cable car will take you up to nearly 2000 meters above sea level, where visitors can also take in panoramic views of Mediterranean cities like Alanya and Fethiye as they traverse the sky. The cable car also offers an opportunity to view two stunning gorges on either side of the mountain peak – Anamurial Canyon to the west and Korkuteli to the east.
On top of Tahtalı Mountain is an adventure park where visitors can enjoy thrill activities like ziplining, paragliding, and ATV tours among others.
