Jungle Bells Adrasan: A Relaxing Getaway In Antalya

Jungle Bells Adrasan

Jungle Bells Adrasan is a beautiful little camp in the middle of the forest, mountains and is very close to the sea. Adrasan is a small village in the District of Kumluca, in the province of Antalya, South of Turkey.

I took the overnight bus from Istanbul to Antalya; it took almost 12 hours to get there, but the bus was very comfortable and the trip was quite pleasant. I arrived at Antalya’s bus station just after noon and took a mini-bus to go to Adrasan.

On the way to the camp, the first thing that got my attention is the long stretch of beach just about 10 minutes walk from Jungel Bells Adrasan. pic here.

Jungle Bells Adrasan: The Camp

As soon as I arrived to the camp, the staff gave me the key and showed me my cabin. I thought I would be very tired and that I would go straight to sleep, but I didn’t. The first thing I wanted to do is just throw my bags in the cabin and go to Β the beach πŸ™‚ I was too excited to waste my day sleeping!

The cabins are very well taken care of and have a shower, a bed (or two) and, most importantly in the hot weather of Antalya, air conditioning.

After I looked at the room, and was pleased with what I saw, I had a quick shower and grabbed my beach bag. I then walked for about 10 minutes and there I was: a beautiful, breathtaking view of the Mediterranean sea, with clear water and just the perfect water temperature.

I spend the whole afternoon there till around 6 pm and then I went back to the camp. I had a little nap and went back to the main area of the camp to have dinner. At Jungle Bells Adrasan, they serve a home made dinner with fresh vegetables and meat every night. The food was delicious, but I was really curious about what their breakfast was like πŸ™‚

Jungle Bells Adrasan: Dinner

After dinner, I decided to hang out at the bar there, where the barmen did an excellent job at mixing one of my favorite cocktails: mojito. I don’t remember how many mojitos I had that first night, but it was a lot of fun LOL.

I woke up the next morning with when I heard the roosters crowing at around 7 am and I couldn’t get back to sleep because I was so excited to look around the area and, of course, go to the beach πŸ™‚

Breakfast was served early and was a classical Turkish breakfast . It had organic eggs every day (my favorite) and lots of watermelon as dessert. Just deelish!

I met some really nice people there and we quickly became friends. Some of the friends I also made were the many cats, dogs and chickens they have at the camp. This cute kitty was my meal companion on most days πŸ™‚

The cabins at the camp are so well maintained and they also have an artsy touch on them. I don’t know who painted them, but they looked pretty cool πŸ™‚

I stayed at the “Simpsons” cabin. Whoever painted it remembered to add the wedgie for Homer LOL.

If you love trekking like I do, there’s so much you can see around the camp, without even having to hire a car or going too far. It’s in the middle of a forest and mountains.

Jungle Bells Adrasan: Chill House

Although Jungle Bells Adrasan is kind of in the middle of nowhere, you can still find little markets, a pharmacy, restaurants, bars, and even a hairdresser! My favorite restaurant to go to was Chill House. The owner is friends with the owners of Jungle Bells Adrasan and is so nice and helpful.

Chill House is a cool looking restaurant that also has lots of paintings and artsy stuff all around. They serve different kinds of food; from burgers to fish sandwiches (my favorites), to pasta to steaks. You can find almost anything you want there.

Jungle Bells Adrasan And Olympos:

Just about 20 minutes drive from the camp, you can find a little town called Olympos. It’s full of bars and night clubs and the night life there is great. There’s also so much to see there as it’s an ancient city full of history. I only went there one night for a few drinks unfortunately and did not have enough time to visit the town.

I spent 6 days there, and then I had to go back to Istanbul. It was one of the greatest vacations I have had in the past 3 years and I really enjoyed it so much.

What I loved the most about Jungle Bells Adrasan is that it’s a small family business. When you stay there, they really treat you like a member of the family. If you’re tired of the noise in the big city and are looking for a getaway to relax and enjoy the nature, I definitely recommend Jungle Bells Adrasan.

  2. Jungle Bells Adrasan seems like a great place! I used to love staying in places like that while I was going in holiday in Poland. Little houses and nature and nice beach around! It was so relaxing! I love those graffiti on the houses! And watermelon for breakfast? yum! πŸ™‚
