Manavgat Waterfall is a famous waterfall formed by the meandering Manavgat River. Manavgat Waterfall, which is 80 km from Antalya, reflects its beauty to its visitors as the river waters fall from a 4-meter cliff. Although it flows low, unlike the usual waterfalls, the transverse width of the waterfall and the sound of the powerful waters are enough to take you away.
Entrance to Manavgat Waterfall is paid and Müzekart is not valid. When you enter, there are many souvenir shops, ice cream shops and various cafes left and right.
The waters of Manavgat, which come from two spectacular dams, Oymapınar and Manavgat, pass through the Manavgat Strait, where the Manavgat River meets the sea to meet the Mediterranean Sea and has a hidden flavor all around.
Let’s give brief information about Manavgat Waterfall. The name of Manavgat Waterfall is derived from Melas, its name in ancient times. A viewing terrace has been prepared right next to Manavgat Waterfall. It is so close to the waterfall that when you climb up here, you feel the water beads on your face and cool off.
Some days the waterfall overflows due to excess water and can reach the restaurant on the left. In the heat of the summer, the water that accumulates in this area becomes a popular spot for visitors. This situation causes a chaos in itself and the already small observation terrace of Manavgat Waterfall is overcrowded with people.
Manavgat Waterfall, which is preferred by tourists especially during their trips to the ancient city of Side, 7 km away, was featured on the back of the 5 TL, which was in circulation between 1968 and 1983. Even if the new generation does not know this, the previous generation will surely remember it.
