During your vacation in Belek, you should make the most of the opportunity to take in the sights of the nearby resort of Kemer. Join a full-day boat tour and check out some of the spectacular sights in the area, including the ancient city of Phaselis. You will be picked-up from your hotel in Belek and taken to Kemer Marina. Form there, you will board a wooden yacht and start your exciting journey along the coastline.
While sailing through the sparkling azure sea, relax, enjoy the sea breeze, soothing sun, and stunning views around you. The coastline of Kemer is very scenic and is considered to be one of the most charming coasts on the Turkish Riviera. You'll see the pirates caves, sail past golden beaches and gorgeous mountains. On the way to Phaselis, you will also visit some fantastic bays where you can stop for swimming. Both Paradise and Cleopatra Bays will amaze you with their crystal clear waters. You can jump off the boat or just swim in the gentle waves of the Mediterranean Sea. Anytime you wish, you can sunbathe on the top deck of the boat or just relax in the shade. The lower deck has wooden tables and benches where you will be having lunch.
Upon arrival at Phaselis Bay, you will have time to explore the ruins of an ancient city. Phaselis was founded in the 7th century BC and was an important port. This historic site is surrounded by beautiful sandy beaches and pine forests. Walk down the main street of this ancient city-port, explore the ruined city walls, houses, baths, and amphitheatre. After you've finished exploring Phaselis, you'll head back to the boat. Look out at picturesque Mediterranean islands and Tahtali Mountain, which towers above the sea at a height of 2365 meters. Upon arrival at Kemer Marina, you will drive back to Belek and get dropped off at your hotel.
