Where Can You Travel?
Campers who vacation in Antalya talk about many places they will visit. When we think about what is Antalya known for, many things come to mind: magnificent bays, clear sea, walks in touch with nature, various activities, and much more. Seeing the bays with boat tours, crossing the Lycian road with hiking trails, visiting ancient cities and swimming with fish by entering that magnificent sea… Which one would you choose? There are several options here:
Yanartaş, also known as Kimera, is 230 meters above Çıralı and Olympos. It has a natural source of fire known as eternal fire. It is a must see for anyone camping in Çıralı or Olympos. According to Homer’s texts, Chimera consists of a lion, goat, and snake. The lion’s head and the goat’s head are on the front, and the snakehead is on the back as the tail.
The story: This three-headed monster comes out of the fire with each breath. The Lycian King of the period sends the young Bellerophontes, who was exiled from his own lands and was not accepted by other kingdoms, to kill the monster. Actually, he gives him this task because he thinks that he cannot kill that monster, that he will be prey to the monster. Bellerophontes sets out with his winged horse, Pegasos. When he comes to Chimera, he begins to fight him. Pegasos takes off when Kimera moves to attack. While descending, Bellerophontes thrusts his spear into Chimera and buries the monster seven floors below the ground. Here Chimera still continues to fire seven floors below the ground.
2. Gelidonya Lighthouse
Gelidonya Lighthouse, the tallest lighthouse in Türkiye, is 227 meters high. The view from the lighthouse is magnificent. Gelidonya was named after the swallows that nest in this region every year. The nose where the lantern is located is called “Kırlangıç Cape”. Sailors call Gelidonya Lighthouse “five islands”. Located between Adrasan and Kumluca, the lighthouse is 8 km from the center of Adrasan. Gelidonya Lighthouse is located in the Karaöz Village – Çıralı trail, which is one of the most beautiful but challenging tracks of the Lycian Way. If you are walking on this track, don’t go without seeing Korsan Cove.
You should definitely see Suluada, known as the Maldives of the Mediterranean. You can go here with a boat tour from Adrasan. This island is completely untouched. The island, which is a natural reef area, has two beaches. The beach in the north is 50 meters long, the waves are fewer here, so this place is more preferred. The beach in the west is 120 m long and is an ideal place for those who like a more wavy sea. Dolphins and seals are the most frequent visitors of the island, which is rich in fish. Have your snorkel with you, because there are many caves both under and above the sea in Suluada. Especially Love Cave attracts the attention of romantics. There is a freshwater spring in the northeast of the island and it extends to the beach. You can drink water from here.
