Stroll through valleys of orange trees to the river and waterfall of Goynuk – keep an eye out for the turtles! If you’re feeling active, hike through the Taurus Mountains or make your way through the green hills on a jeep safari. And when it’s time to chill out, spend the day at the beach, lazing beside the sea. On the streets of Goynuk, you’ll find lots of shops - perfect for a bit of a souvenir shopping. End your day with a big plate of grilled sea bass in one of the traditional Turkish restaurants. 

Surrounded by mountains and clear emerald waters – the area’s natural beauty is one of Goynuk’s main attractions. Nature lovers will enjoy a guided tour through the Olympos National Park into the canyon. Hike through the valley of the river by the rocky Taurus Mountains. On your way, you’ll find the waterfalls of Goynuk which form a stunning emerald green pool. Or if a day on the beach is all want, head to the town’s Blue Flag beach for a dip in the warm waters. 

West of the town by Konyaalti Beach, you’ll find Dolphinland on the road to Antalya. Dive into one of the pools where you can touch, play and swim with the dolphins. If you’re looking for something even more thrilling, embark on a white water rafting adventure down the river in Goynuk. Alternatively, kick up some dirt with an action-packed Jeep safari through the Taurus Mountains. Kids will love a trip to Europe’s largest dinosaur theme park, Dino Park. Check out the huge replica of a T-Rex, and then try out the climbing walls and swimming pools. 

From souvenir stores to traditional markets – you’ll find plenty of places in Goynuk to shop. Friday is the day when the market comes alive. Mix with the locals as they shop for local fruits, vegetables and cheeses. If you’re here to pick up some souvenirs, look out for handcrafted leather items and clothing, and put your haggling skills to the test.
