Even that most advertisement about Alanya claims the opposite the sun does actually not shine all the time.
The upper Düden Water Falls are found 12 km from the city centre of Antalya. The river flows at ground level and suddently drops 20 meters in a dramatic yet beautiful fall into a canyon.
The falls lay in a picnic area with many green plants and trees. In this natural oasis you can consume the drinks and food you have brought with you at one of tables that are free to use. There is a trail around the area which leads you into a cave where you get a different angle behind the fall. In the cave you also find the Whishing Hole fulfilling your deepest dreams.
Düden falls is a great place to chill out in the warm summer days as the canyon and the falls atomization of its water works like a giant natural cooler. Try to avoid going there Sundays in the summer as it is one of the locals favourite places to go and therefore can be a little overcrowded.
