Introduction:

Those who visit Alanya at any time of year can experience fun and adventure, relaxing days on the beach and plenty of interesting tours and excursions.


Types of holidays:

A great many Turkish hotels offer all-inclusive packages, which are ideal for those on a budget. Long-term villas are also available.

Main holiday season:

The tourist season begins in May and runs through to September. The warmest months in Alanya are, July and August. These are also typically the driest months as well.

Popular excursions:

There is no limit to the excursions and sightseeing opportunities in Alanya.

Visitors can take a ride over the countryside in a hot air balloon with Anatolian Balloons.

White-water rafting is available in the Koprulu Canyon, while sailing tours in the harbour offer a more relaxing trip.

There are plenty of important sights to see in Alanya, including Alanya Castle, Yivli, Minaret Mosque, Duden Waterfalls, and the ancient city of Perge.

If tourists want to see everything in one stop, MiniCity model village is the place to go.

Popular sports and activities:

The city's activities are as varied as sights. There is a very popular water park which visitors of all ages can enjoy. There are also unique tours conducted via horseback, and there are, of course, plenty of scuba diving opportunities in the area with reputable diving companies such as Kas Explorers.

Beaches:

There are several popular tourist beaches that attract huge crowds. They offer sandy shores and clear blue water.

Kleopatra Beach and Keykubat Beach are a couple of favourites. On both of these, tourists can parasail, jet ski, swim, sunbathe and find plenty of beach bars.

For tourists looking for a more secluded beach that offers some peace from the crowds, visit Konakli or Avsallar, which are both surrounded by cliffs.

A good choice for tourists who want a little of both is Damlatas, which has sandy shores and clear waters, but it is also very near Fosforlu Cave.

Fugla Beach is often visited by sailing day trips, while Alara Beach is on a small island in the bay.

Nightlife:

There's plenty of nightlife to be experienced in Alanya.

Luxurious dining experiences can be had at the Red Tower Brewery, a restaurant with a rooftop view, and Kale Bar, a two-level bar with a chilled atmosphere.

Shows run throughout the year at the State Opera and Ballet.

Anyone who goes to Alanya to party will find plenty of opportunities for that with the many dance clubs and bars in the area, such as the Black Ice Bar, which is kept at just 17.6°F (-8°C) or Club Ally, a one-of-a-kind outdoor dance club with a circular dance floor and 7 different bars.

Most popular hotels/resorts:

There are accommodations in Alanya to suit any type of vacation. Many of these are all-inclusive hotels that can be an amazing value. Grand Kaptan is one of these, which has its own beach access.

Grand Zaman Garden Hotel is a perfect all-inclusive option for families, as is Green Park which it has a variety of free activities, such as miniature golf and bowling, table tennis, and a pool with water slides

Parador Hotel is right on the beach as well and has a small beach hut where all-inclusive guests can order lunch and snacks for a full day on the beach.

Kleopatra Dreams Beach Hotel has a generous all-inclusive policy as well that includes beer and soft drinks from the hotel's beach bar.

Mitos Apartments also has a great all-inclusive package, as does Mikado Hotel, just across the street from a great beach bar.

The Eftalia Village is a series of hotel buildings, shops and amenities set up to look like a street in an old Turkish village. Blue Sky Hotel has a restaurant situated on the top of the building, in order to give diners a beautiful view at breakfast, lunch and dinner.

To be near the centre of town and, therefore, the busy and exciting nightlife, tourists should find Mesut Hotel and Hotel Alaiye fitting for easy access via foot, taxi or buss.

Other quite popular hotels in the Alanya area include Maritim Alantur Hotel, which is away from the noise of the city.

There is also basic accommodation that can serve primarily as a base for travel and sleeping. Gunes House and Palm Can Hotel are two that fit this description. Mola is another hotel that continues to impress guests with the quality and selection of food it offers in its all-inclusive package.
