Kemer Blue Cruises Turkey
Kemer is a large coastal holiday resort not far from Antalya whether you spend your time exploring the natural countryside or visiting ancient ruins of civilizations gone by or whether you sail Turkey on the blue waters of the Mediterranean as many do on their Turkish gulet holidays, you will adore Kemer for its old-world charm. The beaches, shopping and nightlife attract many holidaymakers year in, year out. This is also a fantastic spot to pick up blue voyage cruises heading towards Antalya or the beautiful, ancient Lycian coastline towards Kekova for their luxury yacht holidays.
Kemer is a popular resort-style town not too far out on Antalya. Although the Turkey gulet cruises do pass through Kemer, it is not as popular for these cruises, as other locations. Kemer is popular for its lively nightlife and beautiful coastline. Kemer is the starting point for our Popular 1 week Kemer-Kekova gulet cruises.
1)The Ancient ruins of Phaselis are an easy day trip from Kemer. Dating back over 2000 years these ruins are a popular tourist attraction as you can explore the Roman and Byzantine ruins whilst enjoying the beautiful scenery that they are found in.
2)For the best panoramic views over all of the Antalya region be sure to catch the gondola ride up to Mountain Tahtali. A great little day trip from Kemer and a nice way to escape the summer heat with the high mountain milder temperatures.
3)The beautiful Goynuk Canyon is a day well spent. You can wander through the canyon and enjoy the beauty surrounding you. It’s nice and cool, so it’s a great way to get out of the summer humidity. If you are brave take a dip in the icy cold waters that around running through the canyon.
Best places to eat!
As Kemer is such a popular holiday destination you can really get your fair share of a different array of food on offer. The ones we think are worth a mention are –
1)Captain Pirate Restaurant and Café Bar. This place, although seems a little cliché is actually a really good pick among all of the restaurants and cafes in Kemer. It has a variety on its menu from western-style food and also Turkish dishes on offer. It also has the best cocktails in town!
2)For the real local experience without the fancy fanfare then head to Havuzbasi Restaurant. This is a great family run business and caters really well for families too. It’s the popular spot to grab your fresh trout meals. The location is lovely right by the river.
3)Navigator Restaurant is the best pick for sunset dinner along the marina. Not only do you get to watch the sunset on another beautiful day in Turkey, but also the food and drinks served here are top-notch and well worth it.
Best places to drink!
Kemer is well known for its lively nightlife. You will want a few nights to get out and explore the best places in town. Be sure to have your dancing shoes on.
1)Club Inferno. This is the hot pick in town. Each night normally has a different theme. You may get the pick of the best songs of the year, a Turkish night or they even host foam parties. Either way, this has been one of the most popular clubs to head out to in Kemer and you can see why.
2)Klub Kristall. Although it’s said to be Inferno’s little brother this is still a really good pick if you want a change of scenery. Good music choices and the staff are super-efficient in serving drinks.
3)Monkey Disco Bar. If you want something even quieter then the bigger clubs on offer, then head here for friendly local service.
