“Cennet and Cehennem (English: heaven and hell) are the names of two large sinkholes in the Taurus Mountains, in Mersin Province, Turkey. The sinkholes are among the tourist attractions of the province. Also a few hundred meters from "Heaven" is the stalactite cave Astım Mağarası or Dilek Mağarası . All this sites are close to each other so its easy to do them all on a afternoon. Entry Fee is 15 Liras.”

Point of Interest
“Yaprakli Koy is a great place to swim .. The bay is really very special. Cold underground spring water from the mountains mixes with warm sea water. It is not a hidden gem but its worth a visit. You can rent sunbeds for a reasonable price.( recommended ) There are some Beach Clubs/Cafes at the bay for snacks and drinks. If you rent sunbeds you can use showers and toilets free of charge.”

Kebab Restaurant
“A nice restaurant for Kebabs. The main dish is Liver Kebab which is great, but you can have Shish Kebab or soups as well. And the price is definitely worth a try.”
