History buffs simply cannot miss the opportunity to visit Antalya Museum. This incredible gallery showcases the archaeological sites of the Mediterranean coast from the Old Stone Age to the era of ancient Greece and Rome. Among some of the things you can view in this museum include pottery, statues, weaponry, clothing, and dioramas. Antalya Museum is open every day from 8:00 AM to 5:00PM except on Mondays (subject to change).
Waterfalls are a popular attraction in Antalya. Duden Waterfalls is a set of stunning Upper and Lower Falls with pristine beauty. The Lower Falls are formed by the Duden River spilling over a cliff's edge and into the Mediterranean Sea. The Upper Falls can be viewed from behind in a cave, where the water creates a beautiful curtain effect. Both falls are located within a large gorgeous park that you can spend the rest of the day exploring. The photo opportunities you will find here are endless! Another stunning waterfall is Kursunlu, which is located a bit further from town, but nonetheless beautiful!

For example, Konyaalti Beach has miles of sandy beaches, restaurants, and cafes. Plus, this beach is surrounded by a serene mountainous backdrop, making it an incredible experience. Lara Beach is another great destination, as it is famous for its clean waters. Other fabulous beach options include Mermerli Beach, Blanche Beach, and Beach Park.
