Alanya Vacation Attractions Holiday Activities Travel Tours Packages Turkey

The burgeoning resort town of Alanya is the largest on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast after Antalya, and most visitors are attracted by the fine beaches west and east of the centre. It’s far more than a bucket-and-spade destination however, with a history stretching back to the Roman period and earlier. What really marks it out is the great cliff-girded, fortress-laced promontory which rears out of the sea and dominates the town at its feet.

Exploring the promontory, you’ll find fortifications (Alanya Castle daily April-October 8am-7.30pm, November-March 8am-5pm; £3.29) and inner castle (daily April-October 8am-7.30pm, November-March 8am-5pm; £3.29, dockyards and quaint Ottoman houses clinging to the slopes among gardens a riot of hibiscus and banana.

There’s also the stalactite-dripping Damlataş cave (daily 10am-sunset; £1.32) set in the western face of the promontory, and boat trips (£7 and up) from the harbour to assorted caves and beaches, one reputed to be where Cleopatra once bathed.

The town centre is loaded with cafes, restaurants, bars and a few (very noisy) clubs, which you’ll share with a liberal mix of Scandanavian, German and Russian visitors.
