Kemer Things to Do

  • Diving of course

    It is a kind of "must do" in Antalya region. Those diving instructors (!) are "collecting" people from all the Antalya region and that "diving industry" seems to be a very good business in the area, perhaps the best in Kemer.I did it once but I will never repeat that exercise. You'll understand me when I will tell you that we have used the same...

  • Myra

    A fairly short drive to the SW, along the coast of the large bulbous peninsula of ancient Lycia, is the town of Myra. I have separate tips on that place, but it is an easy day trip from Kemer and has interesting Roman-era ruins next to tombs cut into the rocky cliffs. It is also the hometown of Saint Nicholas.

  • visting the GOYNUK CANYON

    A canyon and waterfall that can be reached 8 km from Beldibi towards the mountains. Different than Kuzdere because, from time to time you need to swim or climb up the rocks in order to pass the canyon.

    On the other hand all the shops are open till morning.

Kemer Shopping

    by moscowgirl Updated Jan 27, 2004

    Just for your information: all the shops and malls you are taken by a tourleader nearby are not THAT cheap as you would probably expect them to be. At least the leather store for sure. We had no intention to go there, but we took a group tour to Antalya and "paid" for that. 3-4 stores at least with 1 hour into each. Disaster. Besides you have to bargain everywhere with everyone. Even in the hotel store. I am not a bargain profi and honestly don't like bargaining. If you are the same type of person get ready to pay more.

Kemer What to Pack

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: In Kemer it is incredibly hot!! At daytime the temperature is even above 40° and just by staying still you sweat a lot!! At night you can feel a mild change but still so warm! You won't need for sure any warm clothes or jumpers, so save space in your luggage and leave them home
