Manavgat is a mountain river that rises high in the mountains and flows into the Mediterranean Sea . Like all mountain rivers, it is pure and the color of its water is an unimaginably emerald green. The width of the river is only 40-50 meters, but the channel is very deep, which allows large ships to move freely through the reservoir. So when you sail on a yacht, the first thing you will be indescribably surprised at is how intense the water is. From time to time ships sail towards you, passengers and sailors will surely greet you cheerfully! Be sure to return the favor.
On the left bank you will meet various ships parked at the roadside. Here you can see modern and rare models of yachts and ships, probably even private submarines. Beautiful natural landscapes await you on the right bank.
The river flows into the sea, forming a narrow passage, on one side of which there is a shore, on the other – a sand spit. Here you can swim in the sea and in the river at the same time. The feeling is exciting, the water temperature in the mountain river is always quite cool, and the Mediterranean Sea is one of the warmest and gentlest seas in the world. Therefore, you will feel either the scorching coolness of the river or the pleasant warmth of the sea. In addition, salt and fresh water differ significantly in density. You will definitely remember this unusual bathing.
Then take a walk along Turkey’s most famous beach – Cleopatra Beach. A must for every traveller. The beach is reliably protected by rocks from all sides. That is why he was once chosen by Cleopatra herself. His purest water has captured her heart as she has captured the hearts of her many fans. According to legend, one of them later gave her this beach. Mark Antony not only presented her with this heavenly place, but also brought sand from the Nile itself to the shore to surprise and please the queen. The sand is truly incomparable, heavy, coarse and dust-free.
You will spend 1.5 hours on the beach and will surely have an interesting time. Today the beach is full of entertainment. As everywhere in Turkey, wonderful music sounds on the shore. You can swim in the pristine waters of the Mediterranean, stroll the white sands and take great photos.
After a dip in the river/sea and a stroll along Cleopatra Beach, your appetite will surely increase. You will board the yacht and at this time treats will be prepared for you. Lunch is served: chicken or fish, rice and salad made from fresh seasonal vegetables. You can purchase drinks and ice cream on board your boat for an additional fee.
After lunch, disembark on the banks of the city of Manavgat, which stretches on both sides of the river of the same name. A two-hour walk awaits you. The city has a rich history, the people who live in it are very proud of their small homeland and worship the river. The most picturesque place in the city is the Grand Bazaar.
The Grand Bazaar is a wonderful classic Turkish national market. It smells of spices, sellers and buyers are talking loudly, trading and enjoying life. It’s absolutely everything on the shelves. From fruit and vegetables to branded goods. Local agricultural products, famous Turkish sweets, an abundance of spices and herbs, tea in glass mugs and classic Turkish coffee on the sand are common.
You will really like the market as the photos capture the amazing features and beauty of these places.
Manavgat Waterfall, the jewel of your trip. A great creation of man. The artificially created 40-meter waterfall is not inferior in its spectacularity to natural rapids. Its height is only 2 meters, but the water shimmers and boils so loudly that you will take your breath away just looking at this wonder. It is interesting that the waterfall is not visible all year round and completely disappears during floods on the river. Incidentally, Manavgat was once depicted on one of the Turkish banknotes.
