Everyone loves Antalya, but have you ever visited the Upper or Lower Duden Waterfalls in the city centre? You most likely did not! The Duden Waterfalls Antalya are part of Antalya’s natural grandeur, and they are nearly in the city centre. As a result, you can easily visit them in a short amount of time. But first, let me say that they are not comparable to Niagara Falls, but they are well worth seeing. The majority of Antalya residents appreciate the beauty of the Duden Waterfalls on a daily basis.
The Duden Waterfalls can be seen in two different locations along the Duden Stream. The Lower Duden Waterfall is accessible to the south of the Antalya International Airport, where the Duden Stream joins the Mediterranean Sea, while the Upper Duden Waterfall is situated to the northeast of the city centre, Dudenbasi district (Mahalle). The distance between these two waterfalls is approximately 16 kilometres. You can begin with the upper and work your way down.
Upper Duden Waterfall Antalya
The Upper Duden Waterfall, nestled on the Duden River 10 kilometres north of the city centre, is practically heavenly. The Upper Duden Waterfall, also known as Alexander Falls, is 10 kilometres from the city centre. The waterfall’s paradise-like surroundings is lush with greenery. The source of the 20-meter-high waterfall is 22 kilometres away in the Kirkgoz region. Under the waterfall, you may observe carved tombs in the rocks.
The caves beneath the waterfall are worth viewing. Another water source can be found at the bottom of the hill, where a waterfall falls. The waterfall’s surroundings have been created as a picnic place. The modes of transportation to Duden Waterfall Antalya are public buses and minibuses.

Lower Duden Waterfall Antalya
On the way to Lara, Lower Duden Waterfall is located 8 kilometres from the city centre, near to Karpuzkaldiran Beach. This magnificent waterfall is created by Duden Creek, and its drop height is bigger than the upper waterfall, plummeting 40 metres into the sea in spectacular water clouds. When viewed through the Genclik Park nearby, the panorama appears to be a painting. If you have the opportunity, we recommend watching the dropping waters from a boat out at sea.
