One of the most prominent capes of Turkey-s Mediterranean coast, Cape Gelidonya has been the site of countless shipwrecks ever since the dawn of sea travel. The cape is a steep ridge that continues offshore as a line of rocky shoals and islands. The lighthouse is located on the point of the cape, a remote location accessible to backpackers by a hiking trail. ARLHS # TUR-049
