Antalya's ancient cliffs attract tourists with swimming, diving opportunities

The 64-million-year-old cliffs, situated between Antalya's most visited beaches - Lara and Konyaaltı - feature a natural beauty that is truly a sight to behold.

Tourists can either access the cliffs from land or by boat and are able to dive into the blue sea and explore the nearby underwater caves.

One of the tourists who came all the way from London, Andrew Kyuassa, said it was delightful to swim in the sea next to the cliffs and enjoy the natural beauty both under and above the waves.

"This is my first time in Turkey for a holiday, and I'm mesmerized by Antalya. It's an extraordinary experience swimming with the fish. The beaches are great, and the sea is the cleanest sea I have ever seen. I learned that these cliffs occurred millions of years ago, which shocked me. From now on, Turkey is my number one destination for holidays," Kyuassa said.

"I have never seen a place like this," said Marina Anisimova from Russia. "You are alone in nature with the cleanest water and incredible rock formations. We're having the time of our lives."

Turkish tourists who have never seen Antalya's 64 million-year-old cliffs are also shocked to see such striking natural beauty.

Ankara-based Gizem Uysal, who is visiting Antalya, said the beaches and the sea between the cliffs are reminiscent of a natural swimming pool. "It is nice to be here. There are many international tourists. We get a chance to talk to them and have cultural interactions," Uysal said.
