Finike | Finike Property
Set on the Mediterranean coast, ninety minutes away from the airport at Antalya is the breathtakingly picturesque town of Finike. The route to Finike is lined with the world famous orange trees that guide your way to this charming little fishing port. The coast is famous for its abundance of sea-life from swordfish to sea bass, sea turtles and even the odd Mediterranean monk seal. This is one of the quieter towns on Turkey’s Mediterranean shoreline, a great spot for retirement and relaxation and as yet relatively uknown to tourists, Finike property can be bought at a very good price.
Although oranges and citrus fruit remains the main source of local income, it is true that during the summer months, the tourism industry comes into its own. Summer temperatures reach a beach-baking thirty-four degrees Celsius. In winter, temperatures can drop as low as six degrees, but the ocean temperature remains agreeable for most of the year. Finike has a long pebble beach close to the town, but great sandy expanses of beach are reachable quickly up and down the coast from Finike by local transport, or you could even hire a bike and explore at your own leisure.

The charming little town of Finike remains relatively unspoiled by the glare of mainstream package tourism. Much of the development follows the cool meandering river down from the hills and mountains to the marina and the town’s harbour. The marina area is the site of much animation with small restaurants and bars. Being a fishing town, fish dishes are a favourite part of local recipes and can be ordered fresh alongside traditional Turkish foods, as well as some more contemporary Westernised dishes.
Finike is a quiet, peaceful haven, the kind of place you visit to stretch out, relax, unwind and forget about the stresses of modern living. Nevertheless, the industrious tourist can still root out some wonderful sites of local interest, particularly those of an archaeological bent. In Finike itself is the vast, ancient Myra Theatre, dating back to the Romans. The stage is huge and views from the top of the auditorium are truly breath taking. Another exciting place to visit is the undersea city near Kekova. Hire a boat (or take an organised tour) to see this amazing undersea location in the middle of the ocean! Although the area was badly damaged by an earthquake, the tombs of the Lycians are still in excellent conditions.
Property prices in Finike remain very reasonable indeed. As it is still relatively untouched and has escaped major development, the market values have stayed low but the opportunities to purchase are still abundant. Apartments by the sea can be purchased for as little as twenty two thousand pounds (thirty four thousand euro), ranging up to larger properties at fifty thousand pounds (eighty thousand euro). For those with a larger budget, villas are available, although not in the great number that they might be found in other resort areas of Turkey. Three bedroom villas in Finike, with private parking, pool and garden can reach around one hundred and twenty four thousand pounds (one hundred and eighty five euro), which is a steal compared to villas in other areas!
