Lake Egirdir Yatch Tour (17:00 - 20:00)


Egirdir is the name of a lake and of the town situated on the shore of that lake (Egirdir in Turkey. The lake lies in the Turkish Lakes Region and is 186 kilometers (116 miles) north of Antalya. With an area of 482 km2 it is the fourth largest (second largest freshwater) lake in Turkey.


The town and the lake were formerly called Egridir, a Turkish pronunciation of the town's old Greek name Akrotiri. Unfortunately, Egridir means "it is crooked" in Turkish. Therefore, to remove the negative connotations of the name, in the 1980s the “i” and the “r” were transposed in a new official name, thus creating Egirdir, a name that evokes spinning and flowers, although many people in Turkey still call both the town and the lake by its former name.


Lake Egirdir has two islands, connected to the mainland by a long causeway into the town of Egirdir:

  • Can Ada (meaning "Life Island") the smaller of the two islands.
  • Yeşil Ada ("Green Island", formerly known as Nis) - until 1923, was home to a Greek community living in stone and timber houses.
