Things to do in Alanya
Sights to see in Alanya
There are many aspects of a visit to Alanya, with its historic old town, sandy beaches, excellent places to eat and buzzing nightlife. You are also in a good position for a day trip to Side with its Roman ruins and amphitheatre or the spectacular waterfalls outside Mangavat and beautiful mosque in the centre.
Make a visit to the 13th Century castle and its accompanying cave in Alanya before exploring the old town and enjoying the amazing sea views. While you are there you will want to see the ‘Pamukkale’ which translates as ‘cotton castle’. Solidified springs have formed petrified pools that look snowy white where you can bathe in thermal pools.
Walk around the old town and find charming cafés and markets or head to the beach for some action on the water or some lazing on the sand. Alanya is renowned for its nightlife so you will be spoilt for choice for bars or clubs staying open until the early hours.
Even more beautiful sights...
Culture vultures won’t be short of things to discover during their Alanya holiday either, with a host of ways to spend their time including the aptly-named, annual Alanya International Culture and Art Festival; which is staged during the last weekend in May. The area is nothing if not a cultural hot spot per se, while there’s numerous other places to explore all within striking distance for those happy to travel a bit further afield.
The previously mentioned Dim Cave, Alanya Castle, Manavgat waterfalls and Kekova-Demre-Myra tour can all be reached with the minimum of effort and planning, with trips to Pamukkale, Anemurium antique city and Cappadocia requiring a little more travelling, yet completely worth it. staying closer to your Turkish home from home however, and the aforementioned Alanya street bazaars sell interesting souvenirs and goods at reasonable prices, and al also touched on earlier, the city plays host to a cornucopia of cafes, bars and restaurants to dip in and out of while staying in the vicinity.
Most notable amongst them are the almost hidden gems like ‘Belediye Cay Bahcesi’, or the Tea Garden of the Municipality. Most tourists don’t know about this garden and therefore often miss the chance at savouring great tea at a good price. For those hoping to immerse themselves in even more of the local culture, the Hotel Hamburg offers the chance to take in a belly dancing show.
