Damlatas Caves, Alanya

3.3
#4 of 9 in Parks in Alanya
Admire stalactites, stalagmites, and other rock formations located right next to the beach at Damlatas Caves. When construction crews began building the harbor in 1948, nobody expected that a dynamite blast would unearth a geological wonder hidden below the city. The air inside the cave has proven beneficial to those suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions, which is what initially drew visitors from all over Turkey to Alanya and established the city as a renowned tourist destination. The temperature inside the cave remains a steady 22 C (71 F) throughout the year, so make sure to bring appropriate clothes. Because of stairs near the entrance, the cave is not easily accessible for wheelchair users. Damlatas Caves is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Alanya Edition.

  • Stalactite cave the cave before blind people. The cave is too small, flattened and extremely moist. Are you having trouble breathing. If you do not pay attention to your head, you feel like you're çarpacakmış to stalactites. It's due to the small and is very much a tourist in Alanya in summer is crowded in there you can bunala, you do not want to get too much already inside. Alanya Castle is well worth a visit, but under more beautiful, more worth to be visited, I saw in the cave.

  • The place is very interesting. Beautiful staloktity and stalognity. Small lights, and air-very nasyshennyj. Spend a few minutes here-not expensive and impressions. If interested, you can read more about the cave on the blog "there are Hedgehogs".

  • A small cave. Takes 2 mins to walk inside. Cool structures if you’re interested but not a must.
  • Don’t bother. It is just a 5 minute walk to a single cavern which is ok as far as limestone caves go, but lots of the stalactites have been broken off and pilfered long ago I suspect. 6TL entry is tea money for the less than enthusiastic turnstiles operator. Of interest, if you get a ticket at the Kizilkule you can get 3 attractions for the price of 10TL: the cave, Kizilkule and the Shipyard. However, you can’t get this same deal from the caveman!! Go figure!!. It is Very humid inside.
  • Attention to heart diseases people, this place is not what you want. For others, enjoy the nature-made
  • Small, but very smart cave. There are a lot another interesting places near it.
  • If you have half hour to spare go visit this cave. It's definitely worth your time and money.
