The nature of Antalya is impressive richness and brightness. Over the blue of the sea there rise of the Taurus mountains, covered with a cloak of cypresses, orange trees and pines. Spring on the mountain slopes nature draws fabulous patterns from cyclamen and orchids. If you go early in the morning to the shore, you can see how calm the water surface merges with the white dawn mist and white clouds. No wonder that in ancient times the Mediterranean sea was called the White!
