Chasing Waterfalls, a Turkish Delight!

“Don’t go chasing waterfalls” they said….

Well that’s precisely what I did do, I chased four waterfalls whilst in Antalya, and they were well worth the effort. Earths natural elements never cease to astound me with their beauty, so I probably won’t stop chasing waterfalls.

I managed to check off four Turkish waterfalls in one day (including the mighty Manavgat Waterfall); first stop was the Karpuzkaldiran Waterfall, not too far from Lara beach and an iconic Antalya tourist spot.

Karpuzkaldiran Waterfall

Holidaying in Antalya this summer? Looking for a waterfall with a difference?

Just minutes away from Turkey’s Lara beach resort strip are falls that sit opposite a majestic snow capped mountain range, surrounded by panoramic views of the deep blue Mediterranean Sea against the tall, proud high-rise skyline of Antalya city. 

Karpuzkaldiran falls boasts this unusually diverse scene and more, with zip lining and picnics to boot, weather permitting.

So that’s a city scape, mountain ranges and ocean views all in the same place – impressive!

Set against a green turfed park, four powerful frothy pillars gush down a tall sharp vertical drop into the sea below. Whichever direction you look, you’ll be clicking your camera finger.

Kursunlu National Park and Waterfall

Still chasing waterfalls, I felt like I’d walked into a magical scene from a fantasy film, hidden away in a idyllic deep pine forest, the sound of water trickling, rippling and gushing on every turn, under a roof of branches and the chorus of bird calls. Kursunlu National Park feels small and secluded, a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of the city beyond it’s gates.
