Just a short bus ride away, Antalya has plenty of facilities to entertain its visitors; to the west of town by Konyaalti Beach is a waterpark, Dolphinland, the Antalya Aquarium and Aktur Lunapark (fairground). There is also the Archaeological Museum and Antalya Zoo.
Antalya's old town also known as Kaleici, is a picturesque part of the city and is full of character with narrow winding cobbled streets once enclosed in the ancient city walls. A pedestrian zone in the centre features a landmark stone tower, the Grooved Minaret and a statue of Attalus, while the Roman arch known as Hadrian's Gate, can be found at one of the entrances.
The area is great for day trips to nearby sites of interest such as the Phaselis and Olympos ancient ruins, Duden and Kursunlu waterfalls, the Roman theatre of Aspendos and the Termessos archaeological site found high on the Gulluk Mountain National Park.
Popular with scuba divers are the three small islands which can be found just off the coast at Tekirova, around 1-hour boat ride from Kemer. Suitable for divers of all levels, with depths varying from 3-metres to 40-metres, Three Islands is one of the most beautiful dive spots in the Turkish Riviera.
