It lies near Manavgat and the village of Selimiye, 78 km from Antalya) in the province of Antalya. It is located on the eastern part of the Pamphylian coast, which lies about 20 km east of the mouth of the Eurymedon River. Today, as in antiquity, the ancient city is situated on a small north-south peninsula about 1 km long and 400 m across.
During the summer time we may have visit to the Manavgat waterfall instead of Kursunlu waterfall with the reason of sometimes no water at Kursunlu waterfalls at the end of the summer but always water at Manavgat waterfalls.
