Gelidonia Lighthouse




GELIDONIA LIGHTHOUSE




The construction of one of the guiding lighhouses of the Mediterrenean, Gelidonya Lighthouse, started on the historic Licea route in Antalya, Kumluca, Taşlık Foreland in 1934 and was opened in 1936.
Gelidonya Lighthouse is the highest lighthouse in Turkey, with an altitude of 227 metres. Being located over steep rocks, it is quite difficult to reach there. Even today, it works manually due to the difficulty in transferring electricity.

As soon as you reach the Lighthouse, it is impossible not to be fascinated by the mysterious and virgin beauties of the combination of the sea and five Gelidonian islands. You will feel that there is no sense of time and experience emotions that are hard to define. Maybe it is an unnamed fantasy land. Gelidonya Lighhouse, washed by the Mediterrenean sunlight among the scent of pinetrees, it is the lighthouse with the most impressive scenery.
