Located in the Antalya Province of Turkey, Manavgat is approximately 70 kilometers from the city of Antalya. Manavgat was founded around 200-150 B.C. The River Manavgat, one of the longest underground rivers in the world, supplies the city with water and forms the Manavgat Falls. The river flows to the Mediterranean sea. The town is nestled on both sides of the River. The town center is just 4 kilometers from the coast of the Mediterranean.
Tourism is expanding in the region, as visitors discover the 60+ km of coastline. Manavgat hovers between its traditional roots and the growing modernity with expansion of restaurants, clubs, and other entertainment locations.
Those staying in Manavgat should plan to visit the ancient cities of Side & Selge, just a few kilometers away.
