The newly built seaside resort of Kemer is situated on the Gulf of Antalya, on the Mediterranean coast of Turkey. Kemer has two beautiful beaches and a marina, which is a popular winter docking point for boat owners.
There are many opportunities for venturing out on day trips whilst staying in Kemer - both Olympos and Phaselis are conveniently located for visits. In Phaselis you will find many ancient Roman ruins, including theatres, castles and the Zeus Temple. If you go to Olympos, you can explore the national park. Anyone with a penchant for rambling might enjoy the hike to visit the ‘Chimera’ (eternal flames), which is an extraordinary natural phenomenon.
Kemer was once home largely to the Turkish Nomadic tribes-people, the Yörüks. There are still a few Yörüks living in Kemer and there is an anthropological park where they can be visited to experience their lifestyle. For some exquisite panoramic views, get the cable car that takes you to the top of the Mount Tahtali. There are also Jeep safaris around the Taurus Mountains, available for adventurous types.
One of the best places for picking up authentic Turkish products is at the Folks Bazaar. There is a good array of cafes and restaurants in Kemer and there is also a very lively nightlife due to the great selection of bars and clubs in the area. There is something to keep you occupied day and night in this lively beach resort.
