The Harbor at Finike

• HDR Photo

Finike (historically known as Phoenicus) is a district on the Mediterranean coast of Antalya Province of Turkey, 90 minutes west of the city of Antalya.

Finike is located in the south of the Teke peninsula, and the coast here is a popular tourist destination. However, Finike is best-known for its oranges, the symbol of the town.

Finike, Turkey

This photo is a bit of a fluke, since stopping at this place was not on our itinerary for the day. However, as we’re driving to our destination further down the road, the AC on the bus decides to stop working. The temperature outside? About 32C or 90F. So the driver drops us off at this little park and drives away, leaving our tour group to wander around town, but not too far, since everybody is hoping the bus would return soon and we can resume our trip to our actual destination. About 50 minutes later, the bus returns and we resume our journey, but not before I captured this photo and a few other ones that I like quite a lot.
