Antalya/Kemer/Alanya : Turkish Bath and Massage with Pickup

6. Antalya/Kemer/Alanya : Turkish Bath and Massage with Pickup

Visit a Turkish bath house and experience what's still a major part of Turkish culture — a spa of sorts for both cleansing and relaxing. Enter the public hammam and get a massage, hang out in the sauna or steam room, and leave feeling rejuvenated. The Turkish bath traditionally consists of a main circular and large marble steam room with high ceilings that are heated by a furnace. The center of the main room will have an elevated circular platform on which you can lay to experience the heat and get the massage and scrubbing. The surrounding walls are lined with individual sinks, referred to in Turkish as kurna, with hot and cold water taps that you sit next to and fill up with water at your desired temperature. Use metal or copper bowls to pour the water over your head and body. The most popular service offered at the Hamam is the scrub, which is named after the abrasive fabric used for the process. Lay on the center stone as the scrubber proceeds to rub the dead skin off of your entire body by using repetitive motions that will reveal dark rolls of skin and dirt.

Definitely a thing to do!!! It was great from begging to the end. We had transfer from our hotel to the boat and back. On the boat the staff were very friendly and nice. The lunch was also great. For the beaches I dont even have words.. Crystal clear water good beaches and you have 45-60 minutes for every beach. Only thing that I don’t recommend is taking photos on the boat with the photographer, it is too expensive, he asked for 70euros for 5 photos.

We got picked up on time from our hotel and were taken to the boats on a lovely beach. We were then met by the hosts of the boat and the captain. Had a lovely time going to the various stops and had a great lunch. Really nice day. Just wish we could have spent the whole day on the island.

It was just great! our guide - Captain Jack was the best! He made it such an adventure for all of us! we laughed a lot! the water is a bit cold. wear watershoes. dont take anything with you. the pictures and the video are verry good and funny! its worthy!

The excursion was amazing and it’s worth the money and the traveling as it’s 3:30hrs away from Antalya and we had to leave very early. The ruins and the springs are wonderful to see.

Pur expérience with this trip was awesome. We definitely will do it again.
