In the Kemer district in the Mediterranean province of Antalya, domestic and foreign tourists enjoy two seasons at the same time: summer on the beach, winter on Tahtali Mountain. Kemer is one of the most important destinations for Turkish tourism. While some relax on the beautiful beach at 24 degrees, others let off steam in the snow on the summit of the Tahtali Mountain in the Taurus Mountains, which is only about 30 minutes by car from the beach. The snow on the summit is now high of 15 centimeters. Those who do not want to come by car can also be reached with the popular Olympos cable car. On the beach, some holidaymakers enjoyed a refreshing swim in the waves.
