The ancient city of Phaselis is just down the road from Antalya. I’ve been there a bunch of times, but I’ve never written a blog about it. Maybe ’cause I’ve never been there by bicycle? The site is used more as a beach hangout than to explore the ruins, but of course you can do both. The photos that I’ve managed to find for this post are from visits with Bektaş, Seda, and Defne in October 2015 and August 2019. Be warned that Phaselis gets very crowded on hot weekends and has a pricey entrance fee (36tl/person in 2019).
There are remains of an aqueduct:
and a main street:
linking what used to be known as the North Harbor:
and South Harbor:
Phaselis is definitely a fun place to spend the day.
