The Kursunlu Waterfall is a small cascade set amid a cool, pine forest. While not as impressive as the more visited Duden Waterfalls, the Kursunlu falls feel a little more remote due to their setting and access via a short and pleasant walk through the forest.
Only 20 minutes from central Antalya, the surrounding area offers plenty of walking opportunities, especially along the Aksu river. While the falls are more of a trickle in the summer months, it is sometimes possible to spot trout and turtles in the pools that form here.
It’s a good idea to bring a picnic – there are plenty of picnic areas along the river.
Kursunlu Falls are about 19km (12mi) northwest of Antalya along the Antalya-Alanya highway.
