Why choose Kemer?

To begin to clarify why the question “where better to go to Turkey? “, For ourselves, we decided – not Alania, not Side, and not Belek.

+ Banal argument about the rest in Kemer: the price of all inclusive here slightly lower than other resorts. Basically, he’s all determined? We did not choose the cheapest hotel, but for our “Wishlist” turned out to be more profitable Kemer.

+ Convenient location from the airport – 60 km (about an hour drive).

+ Nature: mountains, pines, greens – subtracted in the vast network. So it is.

+ Pebble beaches – to whom as, and to us in plus, nothing sticks and not carried to the room. And what a clear sea!

+ Excursions in relative availability. And here it is not missed.

Districts and Towns of Kemer

The resort Kemer in a general sense is the city of Kemer itself and the neighboring settlements (“podkurorty”).

✓We were in Kemer Center. Green tourist corner surrounded by mountains, but with a touch of civilization and well-established infrastructure. In the summer, all inexpensive treshki – and their a bunch! – filled with youth. As well as numerous places where hang out: bars, nightclubs.

The beaches are pebbled, narrow, they need to “dive” into the passage with the waterfront. Therefore, hotels on the first line – in the classic understanding – no. But there is also a sandy beach – public Moonlight (only sand is not gold, but gray). I will say this: in the city of Kemer – so who is resting on a budget (applies to both young people and 40+ people) or fun with the company.

In the central Kemer, oh-oh-very narrow beach strip and almost immediately deep / Beach Moonlight – the only one with sand

✓ Beldybi. A small settlement 15 km from Kemer. There is everything for tourists: cheap and not very hotels with beaches, cafe-restaurants-benches. Log into the sea leaves much to be desired due to cobblestones – will have to buy corals (10-15 lire in the store) or swim from the pier. But at the beginning of Beldibi behind the tunnel is hidden beautiful wild beach with sand and pebble sunset. Large shopping centers and no supermarkets, for this in Kemer City. Minibus Beldibi-Kemer: 4.5 lira (or $ 1).

✓Geynyuk. The village, divided by the highway 2 parts: closer to the sea – hotels like aki majestic castles, closer to the mountains – the nature and life of the locals.

Beaches somewhere with imported sand, somewhere with stones, but the entrance to the water everywhere pebbled. Route Goynuk-Kemer: 3.5 lira (or $ 1).

✓Tekirova. Secluded relaxation place with Spa and dive centers. This will not fall burning tour, because village considered expensive, with the corresponding hotels. It’s nice here with small children or for a quiet holiday together. Nature is cool but fat minus – to Tekirov long transfer, more than 2 Hours. Tekirova-Kemer route: 4.5 lira (or $ 1).

✓K Kemer resort locations also include smaller villages of Camyuva (but more lively than the same Beldibi) and Kirish. Route Camyuva-Kemer: 3.5 lira (or $ 1).

Recommendations for cafes in Kemer.

Lavash Pide Kemer Lavash Pide Kemer

It is clear that all-inclusive and food and so in bulk, but I insist that at least once you went to a local institution. This is delicious. AND inexpensive!

– Cafe Tavuk Dunyasi popular among themselves Turks. Accordingly, the menu is only in Turkish and the staff, alas, does not know the languages of others (or pretends to be). Portions here big ones.

– Cafe Lavash Kebab House – it seemed to me too publicized, but you can jump in if nearby. Prices higher than the average for the resort.

– Confectionery Kemer Pastanesi – just Bo-gesture-ven-naya baklava! Everything else – and the choice there hoo what – I think that’s great too. There is no price tag, and, honestly, I do not remember how much Exactly worth the baklava, but 4 kinds of 2 things each came out in 26 liras.

In any cafe, in addition to the ordered, you will bring a cake, sauces, light salad – free, hospitality, everything? But before Pay carefully check your receipt. The Turks, though friendly, however, to dissolve a poor tourist is a sacred cause. Somehow we count found an extra dish and a bottle of water that was not ordered.

  • to Phaselis – tourists are waiting 16 km from Kemer the ruins of the ancient city. 7 century BC, for a moment. Wild near beach and clear Mediterranean. Note: for the entrance to the city will ask 20 Turkish.
  • in Moonlight Park – this is when in Kemer City it gets too hot and you need to take shelter in the park. A huge park. With a sandy beach and sun beds ($ 3).
  • to Liman street – for souvenir gifts in The last day is the main shopping street in Kemer.
  • and to Antalya – they rode here twice (8 lire per one side). If shopping is yours, we recommend. Besides, if you pay in lira, it turns out pretty budget. Women’s Kinetics crosses for 50 lire, what is it? ☺

Firstly, there are more bulk beaches (with sand, that is) and cleared entrances to the water. Secondly, the hotel base is more decent, as per quality and quantity. Third, the main children entertaining is here too.

For example:

✓ in Goynuk settlement – dinopark ($ 25, up to 6 years free),

The best beaches in Kemer

The best beach in Kemer The best beach in Kemer

Mountains surround the whole of Kemer. And in May, on the tops of some snow is still visible!

I have to say, the beaches of Kemer are mostly pebbled. For us such beaches are suitable – the sea is not muddy, nothing sticks to your feet. So if you are interested in categorically sandy, I advise you to choose other resorts of Turkey. And the “what?” Dilemma help to solve this one article – Where is the best beach holiday in Turkey?

If all the same Kemer? Then the top of the best coasts below:

  • Moonlight Beach (Moonlight) – sandy with pebbles at sunset in the sea. Sun beds with umbrellas, sun beds ($ 3 or 15 lire) or a place for towels – choose what is best for you. This and suitable option for families with children in Kemer. Also close Moonlight Park with a dolphinarium, attractions, cafes and restaurants.
  • City beach – here the water is clear because pebbles, sun beds are free. The main thing – to have time to take. Meet and hotel beaches (separate areas).
  • Tekirov beach – for fans of diving.

From myself: we liked the northern bay of Phaselis with sand pearl gray. The beach is wild, there are not so many people, except visiting groups of tourists. We also hanker for luxury hotels Kemer beaches on the first coastline. But if you are not a guest … Alas.

The sea in Kemer is calm, and if the waves appear, then closer to in the evening. The depth begins immediately after a few meters.

Confused pebbles? You can choose Side – there is sand and flat long run Read what else the resort wins from Kemer!
