“Not worth a special trip”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Had read mixed reviews and as we were going to Manavgat anyway, decided to take a look. Took around 10 minutes from Manavgat (on a Dolmus that had seen better days!). Cost was 5 LT each which isn't much BUT am not sure what they use the entrance fee for as it certainly isn't being used to maintain the site. Rubbish scattered around, a small, stagnant looking pond with an ornamental vase in it, a couple of restaurants and some small shops selling trinkets and clothing.
The falls themselves are pretty but not spectacular and once we had taken a few photos we left, having spent no more than 10 minutes there.
My advice would be to only visit if it's part of a larger excursion.

“Very beautiful place”
Reviewed 18 August 2014

Ticket cost 10 liras/ person. Place is full of shops which are expensive so don't buy anything just look at the beautiful waterfall. Water runs in the sightseeing balcony which is nice even though the water is only +11 degrees celcius. Definitely worth the visit!

“Nice waterfall, that's it.”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

A nice natural waterfall in the river, clearly a tourist trap with hawkers and parrots for photos and a number of market stalls and shops selling souvenirs, spend 10 minutes tops....

“Really beautiful”
Reviewed 15 August 2014

We visited as part of an excursion and the scenery is amazing. The waterfall is truly beautiful. The river is also excellent and we got a great experience of it going on a river cruise along it. Although the waterfall was great there was not much else to do there bar a couple of shops so I wouldn't plan to spend the whole day there. We stopped for 40 minutes there on our excursion which was the perfect amount of time.

“Nice view”
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

Well the view is really nice, however this of me is not a real waterfall as the height is not that much.

There is an entry fee however really cheap, lower than 2 €/person and you can buy several souvenirs surprisingly low priced for a holiday attraction.
