Phaselis was an old Greek and Roman city on the shoreline of Lycia. Its remains are found north of the present day town Tekirova in the Kemer region of Antalya Province in Turkey. It lies between the Bey Mountains and the woods of Olympos National Park, 16 kilometers south of the traveler town of Kemer and on the 57th kilometer of the Antalya–Kumluca thruway. Phaselis and other antiquated towns around the shore can likewise be gotten to from the ocean by day by day yacht visit.

Approximately, two millennia ago in Roman times this place was a prosperous port town and was used for shipping rose oil and the perfumes made of it, as well as timber from the surrounding forests. The ruins of the ancient city have been mostly cleared of brush and trees, so one can walk along the grand Harbour Way past the elaborate Roman baths, an Agora, and the small but beautiful Theater that can be reached by a flight of wooden stairs.
