There are a lot of beautiful places in the world, in fact there are a lot of beautiful places in Turkey. The seaside resort of Kemer along the Turkish coast, however, is a place of true outstanding natural beauty. With 33 miles of sea coast and a mountainous backdrop that gives New Zealand a run for its money, Kemer is one of those places that you have to stop for a moment to take everything in. Visitors flock from all over Turkey, Europe and the world to have a relaxing holiday set within an awe-inspiring environment. All the facilities are available for the average tourist but the resort itself has not succumbed to the typical concrete tourism development. The skyline is still traditional and the streets aren’t lined with fast food restaurants, Kemer manages to get the balance just right. If all of that wasn’t enough, the weather is amazing. The summer temperatures rarely go below 25 degrees Celsius and in the height of August your tan will certainly be topped up in maximums of over 40.
The marina in Kemer offers everything a visitor could ever want or need. Restaurants, bars, cafes and shops litter the promenade offering everything from leather jackets to fresh seafood. A handy tip – most of the shops here are so used to European visitors that they trade in both Turkish Lira and Euros. If you’re in need of a culture fix, Kemer is a gateway to some amazing landmarks and relics. Nearby you can find Mount Chimaera. Classics fans will know that this is the natural burning rock according to Greek mythology. Just a short journey from Kemer also lie the ancient sites of Phaselis and Olympos. The former is an ancient Lycian city that’s harbours, streets and theatres can all still be made out from the ruins. The latter is a fascinating National Park that is great for walkers, hikers and climbers; it also contains an interesting mix of ruins.
