We dived in Afkule known as Aladdin’s cavern was recently voted in the top 10 dive sites in Turkey. The site is made up of 2 parts, the first part is the cavern itself and the second part is “The Hamam”(Turkish Bath). Descending to 29 meters the cavern allowed us to observed colorful formations. The second part had a small overhang and sandy bottom. After 6-10 mins diving and ascending to 12-15 meters to the Hamam, we entered through a large opening into a closed room. Natural sunlight streams through the window in the ceiling created fantastic light shows. Safety stops were made here before surfacing to admire natural beauty.
