The Gebeler Thermal Springs are located in the southeast of Sakikent, only about 35 km from Fethiye.

The natural spring waters in the spa are heated by the earth to a temperature of approximately 36-38 degrees Celsius. The pool is deep underground, at a depth of 25 meters. Due to the underground source of the thermal waters, the springs have a high content of sulphur and other minerals which many believe gives the water healing properties. The hot springs are apparently a cure for everything from skin diseases, sterility, intestinal distress, burns, open sores, rheumatism, and other distresses.
The springs are located in three different caves, where they were discovered hundreds of years ago. They are open to tourists and locals. They are the perfect relaxation environment after a long day of hiking around and looking at the many ancient ruins in this area.
