Adrasan (Çavuşköy) is 95 km far away from Antalya. You can arrive at Adrasan after traveling for about one and half an hour. Adrasan is committed to Antalya’s town Kumluca and it became a municipality in 1996. It has an interesting bay covered by pines. Adrasan takes opposite wind by land to sea and thus in years when the wind power was dominant, sailing boats couldn't enter this bay and they established civilization on Olympos, Phaselis and other Antalya harbors.

The name of Adrasan comes from Greek and the town is also known as Çavuş village. Bay’s ground, leaning its back to the Bey Mountains is sandy and its sea is shallow and there aren't any highway in the surrounding. It is full of interesting and natural excellences. For those who are interested in water sports, this place is also a unique circuit. The temperature of sea water is high and season lasts for too long. Its see meets the requirements of underwater photographer with a clear underwater visibility range of 29 meters.

Adrasan's closed bay has a vast and long beach. You can get into sea from wherever you want. Opposite the bay, Eliğ of the Musa Mountain attracts attention with its silhouette resembling a camel. Markis hill is situated at the entrance of the bay. If you climb up through the forest from the either side of the bay, you will see how aesthetic is the bay. If you are interested in environmental trips, you should also visit Olympos, the antique city, Yanartaş, fire never burning out in the mythological mountain and the nearest touristical sights: Çıralı, Kaş, Demre, Myra, Patara, Xantos, Phaselis and Antalya.

With its bay, river and surrounding, Adrasan has an atmosphere which you will not want to leave. It’s the right place for a real vacation. While Antalya is crowded, hot and hectic, you will find peace and stillness in Adrasan, which is only at a 100 km distance from Antalya.

Exit the Antalya-Kaş highway and drive down for 22 km to reach Adrasan. Even if the plane tree at the entrance of the municipality does not attract our attention, you will enter a quite different world while drawing near to the sea parallel to Adrasan River on your left. If the ones who set off in the morning reaches the town after it gets dark, this is even more interesting.

Strip bulbs lined up to show the design of both the bridge and the facility creates a different atmosphere.
