The most important natural beauty of the region, which was until very recently called Koyaltı (under the bay) due to the fact that Antalya is situated on the cliffs and which was started to be called Konyaaltı by the local people over time, is Sivri Dağ, one of the highest peaks of Beydağları, and the national park known with the same name. With its incredibly beautiful nature, it will enthrall you at first sight. It is ideally suited for long nature hikes. If you are interested in such a hike, make sure to have plenty of food and drink with you, since there is no place in the national park where you can buy food or drinks. It will be only you and the nature! There are many areas where you can hike or cycle in the park. During these hikes, you can also discover some waterfalls. Rock climbing routes are also available in the park for those interested in climbing.
