FINIKE ROUTE FOR SAILING
RENTAL SAILING TECHNOLOGY | RENT HONORS
Finike, a perfect blend of history, nature and sea, is a tourism spot in Antalya Province. The district draws attention to the ruins of Limyra and Arykanda ancient cities. It is also famous for its oranges.
Finike the ancient Greek Phoenicus (Φοινικοῦς) is a large industrial town 30 miles east of Kas and 45 miles SW of Kemer. It is the closest harbour to the east of the lovely cruising grounds of Kekova Roads and the important ancient site of Myra.
A 350-berth marina at Finike is operated by the Setur company. While the town is not especially picturesque or touristy, the municipality has made a considerable effort in recent years to beautify the town, with some lovely parks, shaded with palm and fig trees and a mile long palm-fringed promenade extending along the beach east of the marina. Also, there are numerous cafes and restaurants near the marina, an ATM immediately opposite the entrance and a good supermarket about one kilometre east along the coast road.
There are laid moorings in the marina, where help for berthing is available 24 hours a day. This port is becoming increasingly popular as a winter lay-up destination for yachts.
