Lower Düden Waterfall is perhaps one of the most magnificent natural spectacles to view in the city if you're searching for a fantastic walk to experience Antalya's breathtaking surroundings. A special attraction called Lower Düden Waterfall can be found in Düden Park in Antalya's Lara neighborhood. Both from a boat on the water and the pavement, it is a potent water attraction.
Knowing that the Lower Düden Waterfall is also known as Karpuzkaldiran şelalesi, which translates to ''the watermelon lifter waterfall,'' is noteworthy given that the region's name is Karpuzkaldran. In Antalya, there are two falls with the same name, Düden. This waterfall emerges from a natural formation near Karpuzkaldran and empties water from the Düden River, one of the biggest rivers in southern Anatolia, into the sea. There are other waterfalls on the cliffs that are identical to this one, but this one is more stunning and draws more tourists.
From adjacent Düden Park, you can view the lovely waterfall. It includes a viewing terrace that offers a unique perspective of the waterfall. This terrace is a wide, lovely green space for guests rather than a place for recreation. It also has a picnic area, a parking lot, and a cafeteria. A well-known attraction in Antalya is famous for breakfast at one of the eateries perched on the summit with a view of the waterfall.
Because it flows underground, this waterfall from the Düden River is known by this name. In the past, the Düden River was known as Katarrhaktes. Despite being only 15 km long, it is one of the major rivers in the Mediterranean region. The river's water originates from underground springs 40 kilometers distant.
In a location known as Düdenbaş, the water rises to the surface and stays there until it reaches the sea. The Düden River empties into the sea near the end of Lara Road, where Lower Düden Waterfall descends from a height of 40 meters.
Boat tours leave from a location close to the waterfall. Additionally, it is one of the unmissable stops on boat cruises leaving from Kaleiçi's Antalya Yacht Marina. You may get the most spectacular view of the waterfall from the sea on one of the boat cruises. Spring and summer are the greatest times to take the tour because the boats may approach the waterfall up close. Near the waterfall, a rainbow frequently forms as a result of the sun's rays being refracted. You shouldn't miss this view. Great photos are a given!
Fishermen value the location where the waterfall empties into the water. The majority of the fish species in the Mediterranean Sea may be found there because it is where salty and fresh water converge.
