Should you be making a visit to the ancient city of Phaselis one of the most lovely things to do is contemplate the ruins from the beach. Before heading back to busy, Antalya take some time for yourself at Phaselis Cove. Protected as a National Park you will find unblemished beauty and a great place to have a refreshing dip. The cove is made up of three small bays and with the right amount of seclusion should you want to hold an impromptu picnic by the sea while you lose yourself in the beauty or in a good book. At the different coves, you will notice there are ruins of the ancient harbours that were probably used by the ancient city of Phaselis for trade and protection. The middle harbour, in particular, had a strong sea wall but it is today a shallow cove, perfect for swimming and snorkelling should you try to see if there any ruins that might have misplaced themselves into the sea. Take a hike down the shoreline to explore the full length of this cove before making your way back towards the ancient town of Phaselis.
Other travellers after taking a half-day or full-day here make their way then on to Cirali and Goynuk Canyon.
