Welcome to Anamur


Whether it's the ruins or relaxed beach life that brings you here, don't leave town without sampling the local muzler (bananas). Piles of the bananas, which are shorter and sweeter than imported varieties, are on sale everywhere. Do as the holidaying Turks do and buy them by the bagful to munch on the sand.

Anamur lies north of highway D400. About 2.5km southeast of the main roundabout is the İskele beachfront area. Anemurium is 8.5km west, while Mamure Castle is 7km east.
