Ancient city of Phaselis is located on three small, perfect bays and now under protection within the grounds of a picturesque national park.
Over 2000 years ago, in Roman times, Phaselis was a thriving port town shipping rose oil and the perfumes made of it, as well as timber from the forests all around.
Today the three bays and ruined aqueduct of golden limestone shaded by fragrant pines are all that is left of once glorious Phaselis. Phaselis is located near Olimpos and not all that far from Antalya city center, it is a good spot for a quiet rest and a splash in the sea from one of the small pebbly beaches.
There is a small entrance fee to the park, which is open from 7:30 am to 7 pm in summer. Drinks, snacks and toilets are available inside.
