Kemer is the go-to seaside resort in Antalya if you’re looking for small but wonderfully scenic beaches, which are set against magnificent nature and with slight touches of ancient Lycia. Wherever you go, whether it’s in the town square, the marina, or even on the gorgeous coasts, you have the lush and forested Tahtali mountain range as a backdrop.

Kemer is among a few towns in the region that serves as a base for taking in the beauty of the mountains and the Mediterranean, with bits of history and even Greek myths thrown in – you can visit the supposed birthplace of the fire-breathing Chimera. Modern pleasures in town range from unpretentious taverns offering mouthwatering Turkish cuisine, as well as themed bazaars and friendly bars.
