Diving Spots in Antalya
Lara and Konyaalti
Probably the best diving spots available in Antalya
are situated along the coast between Lara
and Konyaalti. The depth of the diving spots in this area varies between 15 and 25 meters.
The cliffs, especially ones close to the Konyaalti
Beach, continue underwater as a vertical wall, which makes this place pleasant for divers.
Sican Island, situated 1 km away from Topcam Beach is also a popular spot for divers. There are shallow and very deep sections of the island that people can dive. Additionally, on the east side of the island, there is a small cave. However, it gets busy because of the large number of boats visiting the island.
Sunken San Didier French Warship
The third most popular diving spot is the submerged French warship, San Didier, situated 1 km away from the Antalya
Yacht Marina. The ship sank in 1942 and it is a popular diving place since then. However, if you want to dive here, you will need to get a diving permit from the Governor’s Office Coast Guard Branch.
