Alanya

3.6
A modest coastal town for most of its long history, Alanya became a cosmopolitan tourist destination in the 1990s, drawing big crowds with its nightlife and long stretch of sandy beaches. Located on a rocky peninsula, Alanya features a modern city center packed with shops, bars, and restaurants. Just outside this busy area sits the region's biggest cultural attraction, the remains of a 13th-century castle that once served as a Seljuk palace and defensive structure. Be sure to visit Alanya's ethnographic museum, located in a tall brick tower just below the castle ruins. For something a little different, take a guided boat tour to the famed "dripping caves," filled with centuries-old stalagmites and stalactites. Alanya is in Antalya Province.

Where to stay in Alanya

The majority of the accommodations in the historical city of Alanya feature mid-range, three- and four-star hotels. Many of these offer all-inclusive, affordable packages along the coastline, which are generally within walking distance from the amenities, discos, and restaurants (or you can use the visitor-friendly bus system, which offers stops on almost every corner). Directly above the cape lies the old town, which presents a more authentic depiction of the city's heritage. Opt to stay here if you're looking for something a little less mainstream and a little more romantic, while still moderately priced. Building heights are restricted in the old town, guaranteeing uninterrupted views of the sea.
