Anamur Tours - Excursions, Trips to Anamur ( Anemourion ), Turkey
ANAMUR...Anamur is a town and district of the province of Mersin, on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey, between Antalya and the city of Mersin. Anamur is Turkey's southernmost point, a coastal resort famous for its bananas and peanuts.
Anamur has mutated from the Greek "Anemourion"
(Ανεμούριον) meaning "windmill".
Although there are places of historical interest, long beaches and a clean sea there is no large scale tourism on this part of the coast as the coast road in both directions is winding and really slow to drive. But there are major road works now into the direction of Mersin and Antalya. Many kilometers have four lanes now. It takes 5 hours to get here by bus from either Mersin or Antalya. Gazipasa Airport (near Alanya) has been opened mid 2011.
The fascinating historical remains and natural sights will make your trip unforgettable...
So although some people from central Anatolia as well as foreigners from Europe (Germans/Austrians/Dutch) have holiday homes here. Anamur itself is a quiet isolated town with no night life, and in winter is very quiet indeed. Anamur Iskele is the beach resort of this area. A lot of holiday flats and villa's are situated near the beach or more inland. Plenty of small and some bigger hotels offer good quality as well as the restaurants near the small boulevard. The beaches are important nesting grounds for the sea turtle caretta caretta and the rocky areas of coastline are inhabited by the Mediterranean Monk Seal.
Mamure Castle, the medieval castle, well-preserved,
about 7 km (4 mi) south east of Anamur. Originally
built by the Romans in the third or fourth century
AD, it was enlarged by the Byzantine Empire and the
Anemurium, the remains of the ancient city, built between c. 100 BC and AD 600 6 km (4 mi) southwest of Anamur, on the coast. The stone walls of the city are still partly intact and there are many mosaics.
