Oymapinar Dam, Manavgat

4.4
#4 of 6 in Sightseeing in Manavgat
Dam Nature / Park
One of Turkey's largest arch dams, Oymapinar Dam draws the admiration of architecture lovers with its elegant design and scenic location. Just a short drive north of Manavgat, the structure includes unique design features that provide it with extra strength and stability. The immense force of water pushing the massive dam into the underlying rock compresses the concrete and makes the structure extremely strong. Nearby you can also visit two major waterfalls, where you can take a boat tour on the Manavgat River or hike the surrounding mountain scenery. Work out when and for how long to visit Oymapinar Dam and other Manavgat attractions using our handy Manavgat trip generator.

Where to stay in Manavgat

Despite being a prime tourist destination because of its neighboring waterfalls, the town of Manavgat offers little in the way of accommodations. Instead, consider the coastal town of Side, just 2 km (1.24 mi) southwest of Manavgat. Here you'll find many options, including four-star resorts and mid-range hotels along the sandy beaches. The cape is home to more budget-friendly options--a handful of hostels and guesthouses. Stick to the cape to be within walking distance of restaurants, while not being too far from Manavgat. The waterfalls sit directly north of Manavgat, so allow for a little more travel time if you stay in Side.
