The shore from Beldibi to Tekirova consists of unspoiled beaches in bays of various sizes, mostly stoney rather than sand. With easy transportation, good communication and other municipal services. Tekirova has a large hotel bed capacity and is a comfortable and peaceful holiday coast with an internationally accepted reputation, attracting large numbers of visitors from countries such as Germany, The Netherlands and in recent years predominantly families from Russia. Many of the visitors come as part of low-cost all-inclusive package deals but tourism is still the mainstay of the local economy. There are so many visitors that most shops in both Tekirova and Kemer are set up to sell things like leather jackets to overseas visitors and trade in the dollar, the euro, as well as the Turkish lira.

Göynük Canyon, Ulupinar, Cirali, Olympos, Chimera, Phaselis, Camyuva, Kemer, Three Islands and Eco Park are the tourism points of this region. The town of Kemer is vibrant with clubs, bars and restaurants, blue flag beaches and a 320 capacity yacht marina. Popular coastal villages nearby include Beldibi, Kiris, Çayova, Aslanbucak, Kuzdere, Beycik, Çamyuva, Göynük, and Çirali.

Annual events in the area include art exhibitions in Phaselis, boat races, WRC (World Rally Championship), Turkey Offshore Championship, Turkey Motocross Championship, Phaselis Art Festival, and the Kemer Carnival. International pop stars and Djs, such as Tarkan and Dj Tiesto also give summer concerts along this coast.
