Çamyuva is a small town in Turkey to the south of Kemer and just north of the ruins of Phaeselis. Formerly a village without a municipal administration it was recently merged with the neighbouring village of Kiriş and the official name for the two together is Çamyuva. Although during the past few years much construction has occurred these two towns are still well-known for their numerous olive and orange groves. Çamyuva is located southwest of Antalya. It is surrounded by the Mediterranean Sea on its eastern side, Tahtalı Mountain on its west side and the Ancient city Phaselis and the district of Tekirova at its south side. Çamyuvas population is now about 10,000, but during the summer season it increases to 30,000. Çamyuva was a neighborhood of Kemer until 1944 and its previous name was Ağva. It was separated from Kemer and founded as a village in that year. According to a law of 1961 non-Turkish location names were changed and this district has been called Çamyuva since then. Çamyuva is a resort in the district of Kemer province of Antalya, Turkey situated in the foothills of the Taurus Mountains on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea about 7 kilometers south-west of Kemer. Çamyuva in recent years has become a popular tourist resort, frequented mostly by middle-income tourists from the former USSR, Finland and Central Europe. Çamyuva has a long pebble beach and many hotels, restaurants and cafes.
