Reviewed 1 August 2014

I had read some negative reviews but also some positive so we went with an open mind. Thankfully the entry cost was minimal. This is nothing spectacular, in fact we have a viaduct in a local park that is bigger and more spectacular back at home. Litter was everywhere and the place was just full of shops etc. You even had to pay to use the WC but this was not a nice experience despite paying. I would avoid this attraction.

If you are in the area then go but else I would not book a special trip to see the waterfall.

Before going I did not know much about the waterfall but on arriving the whole surrounding area of the waterfall is fenced off and they charge 5TL to get in (I do not mind paying that is only about £1.50) the problem is the area inside is just horrible loads of over priced cafes , food stands and gift shops, as well the stall where you can get your picture taken with a parrot, something I particularly dislike, especially when you see the man handling the parrot hitting it on the beak and making it dance to some music that was playing.

The waterfall itself is ok, nothing spectacular and it is hard to get any good photos of it due to the amount of people that were crammed in when we were there, we really struggled to get close to the railings for a family photo.

This could have a real natural beauty but they ruined it by turning it into a horrible tourist attraction, which I find strange when you compare it to most of the ancient ruins in Side which you can walk freely through.

Car park opposite and close to the entrance - worth seeing once, but you have to run the line of tourist tat before you get to the waterfalls themselves. Pleasant photo opportunity, but not much else. If it's included in a tour (mine was with a Jeep Safari), then go, otherwise only call in if you are passing.

The waterfall is not so impressive. You pay 5 tl to go in and it's covered in trash, especially from bottles or shoes. The cafes around are a bit sleazy and use cheap ingredients. Come if and only if you're tired of the beach and have nothing else to do.
