Aşıklar Cave

Aşıklar Cave;The cave, situated by the side of the historical peninsula, has got two entrances. After the boat comes alongside the rocks towards Cilvarda promontory, it’s able to reach the cave by rock climbing. You can reach the low entrance with a few steps. It’s 75 m. Long. Since it has a low ceiling, you sometimes bend down while walking.
The altitude of the entrance on the side of Damlataş Cave from the sea is 8m. And you can jump into the sea here. All that moment the boat turns round Cilvarda promontory, gathers the people from the sea and goes on the excursion. However, there can be some people who don’t want to jump into the sea at the last moment and it’s more difficult for them to step down the rocks, so what you’ll do is at first stuffing up your nose and then diving into the sea with a huge scream. There was a rumour that the pirates hid their booty and girls in this cave. It’s thoughtthat the cave was named as Lovers Cave as the couples dated thre secretly.
