The Manavgat Waterfall:
There is a waterfall 3 km far from Manavgat. It is a low (2 m), but very wide (40 m) stream. It is not visible in the flood. This place creates an amazing atmosphere, beautiful views and a pleasant coolness from cold water. It’s transparent, but under the sunlight, it changes its color in a bizarre way, with different shades of blue and green. You can admire the waterfall from a small viewpoint. The pictures here are beautiful.
River Trip & Swimming
The yacht tour is one of the popular entertainments in Turkey, which is not less interesting than a sea trip. The Manavgat River flows from the eastern slopes of Western Taurus mountains among the canyons. After the waterfall, the landscape is replaced by a plain. After a few kilometres, the river flows into the Mediterranean Sea. It has two dams – Manavgat and Oimapinar. The latter one formed a reservoir called Green Canyon (Green Canyon).
After a walk on the river everyone can swim in its delta. There is a sandy spit that separates Manavgat from the Mediterranean Sea. Bathing in cool waters allows refreshing and energizing for the rest of the excursion. This option should be planned in advance and take a swimsuit (swimming trunks) and a towel. If you don’t want to swim, you can just admire the sea view.
The market in the city of Manavgat is the local Grand Bazar. Here you can fully experience the Turkish coloring. The range in the market is large:
– fresh fruit and vegetables;
–spices and sweets;
– bags, shoes and accessories;
– watches and jewelry;
– clothing and jeans;
On the market you can find high-quality copies of famous brands at an affordable price. It can always be reduced as it is obligatory to bargain a little bit. At this stage, tourists are given free time to find what they need.
