Anemurium offers a little rocky beach in front of the ruins (still in good state of conservation). Pleasant walk between the stones and the walls of the old building. The thermal building is the best conserved, with mosaicos still visible with full colors.

Anemurium is simply stunning. On the southern tip of Turkey. Difficult to get to but worth the effort. Taxi from Iskele and back cost 50 Tly. Our visit was in winter, but methinks the beach there will be wonderful to swim in summer!

Just after Anamur on your right hand side you will find this very very interesting place. Many ancient buildings are scattered through the area, some well reserved. Parking place and restaurant available. Also the beach is easy to approach. A winding road up the mountain...More

Excellent ruins in pretty good condition right near the sea. When I was there, I had the ruins to myself. Very atmospheric and very interesting. The ruins are at the southernmost point in Turkey. About 6 or 7 km from Anamur.
