There is a beautiful waterfall in Antalya.
It’s called Lower Duden waterfall, and it’s situated on the outskirts of the city. Since the waterfall is right on the coast and falls into the Mediterranean sea, it’s both a beautiful place to go on a walk to and also a very unique place to visit in Antalya. Yes, you can also go on a walk from Antalya old town all the way to this waterfall.
Lower Duden Waterfall: Basics
I have seen a fair share of waterfalls in countries like Norway, Thailand and Indonesia. But seeing a waterfall this big in the city, I was really surprised.
LOCATION: Lower Duden waterfall
There are two Duden waterfalls in Antalya region.
We are talking about Lower Duden waterfall. Upper Duden waterfall is also in the city, but it’s further away, it takes more time to get there and it isn’t open 24/7.
TIPS: Open 24/7. Because it’s a regular public park with no gates. There is a bike path going all the way to the waterfall, so you can also cycle there. If you fancy to have a picnic somewhere in the area, there are plenty of places to choose from. Just be prepared that it’s a popular place both among the locals and tourists.
How to Get to Lower Duden Waterfall?
It’s quite far away, but it’s still very easy accessible.
There is a bike path all the way to Duden Waterfall.
You can take a bus to the waterfall. There are also direct buses going all the way from the old to the waterfall, so you don’t even have to change a bus. The nearest bus stop is only a 5-minute walk away from the waterfall.
To find the right bus in Antalya, use Moovit app. At least in 2021, Google Maps isn’t showing public transportation in Antalya. Don’t forget to connect your Antalya card transport card with your HES code, if it’s still needed when you’re traveling — it takes less than 5 minutes, and you can do it online.
And you can also take a taxi to the falls.
Visiting Lower Duden Falls: Our Experience
In three words – it was awesome.
The place is pretty. It’s very easy to get there and to find it. And it’s a free public park, meaning that you don’t have to wait in line or to buy a ticket. Apart from that, you don’t have to go to one specific place to look at the waterfall. Anywhere to the right (in direction of the old town) will be fine.
Here are a few photos from our visit.

Book Your Trip Like a PRO
1. Book Your Flight. Find cheap flights using Kiwi.com, Momondo.com. Or subscribe to Dollar Flight Club, if you don’t want to be searching for the flights yourself. Momondo usually is my first choice.
2. Book Your Accommodation. Booking.com, Agoda.com and Airbnb. I use Booking and Agoda at least a dozen times a year, and Airbnb – when looking for a long-term stay. My best tip is to ALWAYS compare the price. Sometimes the same hotel is cheaper on Booking.com, other times – on Agoda. Always compare the price!
3. Buy Your Travel Insurance. World Nomads and SafetyWings are two companies I can recommend. World Nomads offers some extra benefits, that will be important for those doing some higher risk activities, while SafetyWings is significantly cheaper. SafetyWings is only $9.25 / week.
