Gazipasa Travel Guide
The known history of human settlements in the area dates from 2000 B.C. But although they do not give us sufficient information, there are signs of earlier human settlements around Gazipasa.
In a world where people are in a race to leave at a place untouched and with an unspoiled beauty, Gazipasa shines out with its unpolluted nature, pure historical heritage and friendly hospitality of its people.
In Gazipasa the Taurus Mountains run parallel to the infinite azure of the Mediterranean Sea with their snow capped peaks in the winter and their emerald green in the summer.
There is an antique port on the border separating Alanya and Gazipasa This antique port is used today as a beautiful cove where people can go swimming. On both sides of promontory stretching into the sea, there are two beaches. The ruins of an old structure rising on the promontory above the beach known by the name The Port of Haul, looks like an old castle. But in fact, it is the ruins of an old church. The ruins of the antique town of Iotape lie on the opposite side of the road running parallel to the sea.
It is possible to have a list sight of the Gazipasa coastline from the promontory jutting into the sea here. Here, you cannot help but notice the crystal-dean sea; sand beaches stretching as far as the eye can sea and the peacefulness of the surroundings.
