You will reach Suluada after approximately 30-40 minutes by boats departing from Adrasan. The first stop in Suluada will be the point where the healing water of Suluada, which is a natural wonder, comes out. This water, coming from the Taurus Mountains, comes to the surface over Suluada, which is 15 kilometers away from the land, by the path it finds under the ground and under the sea. Fresh water in the middle of the sea…
The water, which has been used as a source of fresh water by sailors in the region for years, is believed to be healing. The taste of the water, which is said to be good especially for those who have kidney stones and other kidney ailments, is quite good and makes you relax under the heat of Antalya, as it is ice-cold.
The healing water comes out of a region on the island where there are cliffs. Boats dock at the rocky part, but during peak periods, 10 boats can dock at the same time, which can cause a minor confluence. To reach the healing water, you first have to swim in the sea and walk on the rocks. As the sea is deep and the rocks can be dangerous, we recommend that those who cannot swim should not try to reach the water. It is a good idea to take a pair of sea shoes with you to move comfortably on the rocks. You can also take it with you when you reach the water, do not forget to take an empty bottle for this.
Another stop of your Suluada boat tour is Suluada Front Beach, one of the two beaches in Suluada. Boats anchor at Suluada Front Beach and take a break of approximately 2-3 hours. The sea is a bit choppy on this windy beach of Suluada. The boats can change the break time here according to the wind and wave conditions.
When you come to the beach, the first thing that welcomes you will be the blue waters, the color of which you cannot believe. There may even be those who scream with excitement, do not be afraid. Of course, there is only one reason why the water looks so turquoise and that is the white sands! If you are wondering how he can be so white, his explanation is as follows:
Suluada, which is a natural reef region, is one of the richest regions of Turkey in terms of biodiversity. Apart from the rock structure containing calcium carbonate, the sands look so white thanks to the microorganisms called Foraminifera that live on the sands. Suluada, which is not allowed to be built on, is an ecologically well-preserved region. However, the fact that it has become very popular in recent years is very worrying about the deterioration of the natural structure.
At Suluada Front Beach, you can enjoy the sun and the deep blue view by throwing your towel on the white sands. After the swimming break at the front beach, your next stop is Suluada Back Beach, which is located behind Suluada and is more secluded, without wind and waves.

Moreover, thanks to the white sands, you can easily watch under the water, you should definitely take your goggles with you when you come to the beach! Due to the lack of wind, a lunch break is also given here.
