What to see and do on a Holiday to Alanya
Historical sights abound in Alanya, the most intriguing of which is the 13th century Kale, or the Citadel. This sprawling walled complex makes its way along a peninsula on the sea, and houses the iconic Red Tower overlooking the water, an ancient mosque, Byzantine church, and Ottoman villas. The old docks of Tersane are also another interesting spot to visit as they were built many centuries ago, and span the waterfront with their picturesque arches and vaults.
Alanya also boasts a gorgeous beach that stretches east from the city for 20 kilometres. This is the ideal spot to do some sunbathing, swimming, wind surfing or parasailing. To the west is Cleopatra Beach, which offers sun loungers, parasols, and snack and drink services from a range of tempting beach bars. Visitors on a holiday to Alanya can also explore odd stalactite and stalagmite formations in the many caves along the coast, including the Damlatas Caves, Lover’s Cave, Girl’s Cave, and the Phosphorous Cave.
Besides impressive heritage buildings and beautiful beaches, Alanya also offers many activities for travellers of all ages. Kids will love Sealanya, where they can watch dolphins and seals perform amazing tricks and then swim with these gentle creatures. Alanya is also home to go-kart tracks, an archaeological museum, interesting shops and boutiques, and fabulous dining and nightlife venues.
