A relatively big city with a population of about 75,000, Manavgat, which lies on the banks of Manavgat River a few km inland from the shore, is the hub for visiting nearby waterfalls and seaside resorts, though the city centre itself is not of much touristical importance except for some urban services which little nearby resorts cannot offer.
Manavgat has a public bus and minibus fleet, though the city centre is compact enough to get along on foot.
To get to the waterfalls, take the minibuses (dolmuş) with the sign Şelale - Sarılar from the main street of the city. They cost 2 TL/person and take about 15 minutes to get to entrance of waterfalls area. There is also a carpark free of charge at the entrance of the falls.
(+90) 242 is Manavgat's telephone code.
