Tips for a holiday in Alanya, Turkey

One of the most popular holiday destinations in Turkey is the seaside resort of Alanya. The sandy beaches are well maintained and most tourists come here mainly to enjoy the sun and the nightlife. But the city also has plenty to offer for people who don't just come to Alanya to relax.

Sights and activities in and around Alanya

Cleopatra Beach

The beaches of Alanya are fantastic: beautiful sand, wide and clean. The water is also exceptionally clear and many beaches are Blue Flag, meaning they are clean and safe. One of the best and most popular beaches is Cleopatra Beach, a beach of about 3 kilometers on the west side of Alanya. Legend has it that the famous Egyptian Pharaoh Cleopatra was given the beach as a gift from her Roman lover Mark Antony. She would also have bathed there with her lover. Sunbeds and umbrellas are now available for rent on Cleopatra beach.

Alanya Kalesi

Alanya Castle, or Alanya Kalesi as the Turks themselves call it, is a medieval castle located south of the city. The castle was built in the thirteenth century on the remains of earlier fortresses. Because the castle is located at a height of 250 meters, you have a wide view of the Mediterranean Sea from the open-air museum and you can see the entire city.

Water Planet Aquapark

If you want more action during your holiday in Alanya, plan a day trip to the Water Planet Aquapark. Quickly slide down one of the 27 slides or take a dip in one of the many swimming pools.

Damlatas cave

One of the most popular sights in Alanya is the Damlatas cave. This cave was discovered by accident during the construction of the harbor of Alanya. The dripstone cave is 30 meters long and 15 meters high. Due to the high humidity and constant temperature of 22 degrees Celsius, the cave has a beneficial effect on people with respiratory problems.

Boat trip in the area

Higher temperatures are ideal for taking a boat trip. Several excursion boats leave from the harbor of Alanya to the best destinations. Most boat excursions around Alanya visit at least one of the three sea caves.

Practical information about a holiday in Alanya

Overnight in Alanya

From large resorts with swimming pool and hammam to cozy guesthouses, there is a suitable place to stay in Alanya for everyone. Whatever type of accommodation you choose, it is always advisable to book a room in advance to avoid disappointment.

When it comes to travel, the trend of the moment is the adults only holiday. Alanya is the leader in Turkey when it comes to the number of hotels where children are not allowed. Hotel Michell & Spa and Sunprime C-Lounge are examples of hotels where adults can enjoy their holiday in peace.

A visit to Turkey is not complete if you have not visited a real Turkish bathhouse. In many hotels you can book an excursion to a traditional hammam, but there are few hotels where you can enjoy a soap and oil massage in the accommodation itself. One place where this is possible is the Panorama Hotel in Alanya. Hotel Panorama is the first hotel to be located on the beach of Alanya. From the restaurant and bar you have a direct view of the Mediterranean.

Transport to Alanya

Depending on which airline you fly with, you will arrive at Antalya Airport or Antalya Gazipasa Airport. These are two different airports, although the names suggest otherwise. The former is the largest and it is located about 100 kilometers from Alanya. If you travel to Alanya from this airport, it will take you at least two hours to get to your hotel. Gazipasa Airport is significantly closer to Alanya and from this airport it is only half an hour to the Turkish resort.
