Manavgat - Turkey Manavgat
Manavgat is a town and district of the Antalya Province in Turkey situated 72 kilometers from the city of Antalya. The Manavgat River has a waterfall near the town which draws large numbers of tourists to the area. Between the Taurus Mountains to the north, and the white sand beaches of the Mediterranean Sea, much of this district is surrounded by a flat plain that is fertile farmland well suited for agriculture and is well developed in the Manavgat area. Raising livestock and the growing of crops including wheat and sesame as well as fruits and vegetables and in recent years olive trees have also been planted. There is no industry except for the processing of the locally grown food, so aside from thisagriculture the local area economy depends on tourism.

The mountains are covered with forests as well as typical varieties of Mediterranean shrubs and there are small plains higher in the mountains which have traditionally been used for summer grazing pastures by the Yörük nomads. Manavgat has a Mediterranean climate of hot, dry summers and warm, wet winters with the temperature rarely dropping to freezing levels. The district is irrigated by the Manavgat River, and has two dams creating hydro-electric power. The nearby ancient cities of Side and Selge date back to the 6th century BC. Manavgat was conquered by the Seljuk Turks in 1220 and by the Ottoman Empire in 1472.

With 64 kilometers of beautiful sunny coastline lined with sandy beaches, a long river and unique waterfall, well-protected natural countryside including mountains and forests, Manavgat has become an important tourist destination. There is plenty of accommodation on the seashore and many places to visit including historical sites, beaches, rivers, the waterfall and caves. And there is the unique experience of swimming from a fresh water river directly into the sea at the mouth of the river. Culinary affecionados will love the cuisine - much of which includes fish from the Mediterranean Sea.

With a large number of visitors every year this traditionally conservative area has evolved considerably with bars, discos, and all the amenities of the youth culture which did not exist 20 years ago. On the coast the villages of Kumköy and Ilıca are particularly lively destinations for those seeking a more exciting holiday. Places of interest such as Köprülü Canyon - situated in the middle of a forested national park this canyon is popular with river rafting enthusiasts. For history buff the ancient cities of Side, with its theatre and port and Seleucia or Pamphylia - which was visited by Alexander the Great.
