Your plan includes some of its best attractions: take in the dramatic scenery at Tarsus Waterfall, don't miss a visit to Eski Cami, pause for some serene contemplation at Kirkkasik Bedesteni, and examine the collection at Nusret Minelayer Museum.

Erdemli

Erdemli is a town and district of Mersin Province in the Mediterranean region of Turkey, 35km west of the city of Mersin.GeographyThe district extends from the Mediterranean coastal plain, the largest agricultural area in Mersin Province, to high in the Taurus Mountains where there is forest, and then a large area (half the land area of the district) is high mountain above the treeline.Erdemli is a quiet rural district where the people are conservative, and is traditionally a stronghold of Turkish nationalist politicians; however some departments of Mersin University are opening branches here which will surely have an effect on the cultural and social life of Erdemli in the future. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Erdemli: Mersin (Mersin Forum, CambazlI Kilisesi, &more), Silifke (Yaprakli Koyu, Astim Cave, &more) and Caves of Heaven and Hell (in Kizkalesi). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Kiz Castle, kick back and relax at Susanoglu PlajI, and delve into the distant past at Kanlı Divane Ören Yeri.

Anamur

Anamur is a town and district of the province of Mersin, on the Mediterranean coast of southern Turkey, between Antalya and the city of Mersin.Anamur is Anatolia's southernmost point, a coastal resort famous for its bananas and peanuts.EtymologyAnamur has mutated from the Ancient Greek "Anemourion", Latinized as "Anemurium", meaning "windmill". Get out of town with these interesting Anamur side-trips: Mersin (Soguksu, Mirror Lake - Gilindir Cave, &more), Tisan Koyu (in Silifke) and Bozyazi (Softa Kalesi & Toslaklar Koyu). Spend the 22nd (Sun) exploring nature at Pullu Tabiat Parki. There's still lots to do: delve into the distant past at Anemurium, examine the collection at Anamur Museum, step into the grandiose world of Mamure Kalesi, and take in the views from Alakopru.
