Details

Spend a lovely day sailing along the Manavgat River, enjoying spectacular river landscapes and the beauty of Manavgat Waterfalls. River Cruise starts from the town of Manavgat (transportation from/back to Alanya is included). Sailing through the green waters you'll see many small turtles sunbathing in tree branches by the river. Surrounded by the beautiful scenery you can sunbath on the top of the boat and relax enjoying cool refreshing breezes. At the end of the Manavgat river there is a great sandy beach which separates the river from the Mediterranean Sea. In this remarkable place cold fresh river water mixes with the warm salty sea water. You'll have a break for sunbathing on the beach and swimming either in the sea or in the river.

After lunch on the boat you'll visit a beautiful waterfall on the Manavgat River. It's located not far from the ancient city of Side, 3 km north from Manavgat. The width of this waterfall is about 40 m. Although it falls from a low height (about 3 m), the white foaming water of the Manavgat Waterfall flows powerfully over the rocks. Shady tea gardens, fish restaurant, cafeteria and souvenir shops near the waterfall make it a great resting spot.

During this trip you'll also visit the town of Manavgat (the third largest city in Antalya region (after Antalya and Alanya) and its mosque (one of the biggest on the Mediterranean side of Turkey, with four minarets and beautiful ornaments inside). Every Thursday there is a big bazaar in Manavgat; it's worth to visit, especially the fruit and vegetable bazaar which makes You feeling the oriental atmosphere.

We booked the boat trip, I emailed them and they provided me with their whatsapp. Ibrahim was who I dealt with who replied back so promptly, excellent communication. We were collected and then taken to the mosque, it was beautiful. We then went to manavgat and got on the boat, we had a beautiful trip, the boat ride and views were great. Once we got to the beach area, we had 1 hour to just chill and relax, then we had our lunch on the boat. It was the tastiest meal I've had in ages! The meat was cooked so well, the salad was lovely and so was the rice, I honestly would do the boat trip just for the food haha. Then we travelled back towards the starting point. it was probably 3pm when we were back on the coach and headed to the markets. The markets were great, I didn't buy much but many bargains there. After 2 hours we then headed to the waterfall, which was stunning. The force of the waterfall was tremendous and we took amazing photos. We got back to the hotel just before 7pm, so it really is an all day tour as we were collected at 8.30am. It's really worth every penny, the staff were great. Most on tour we're German so the tour guide had to speak in German first but then he translated to us in English.
