Damlatas Caves, Alanya

(3.2/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Alanya attractions like Damlatas Caves can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • You'll spend time and input to this place will pay charges to shame. When I heard the name would be wiggling inside of me, I went into shock from the shock when I see it. Sucks ass. The opportunity to visit this place if you have Dim cave, and Aynalıgöl cave in Aydıncık, Mersin.

  • Close to Cleopatra beach, very nice cave to see, a lot of stairs to go, not sure if is lift there. Worth to visit  more »
  • If you have seen in your life, then do caves here. A small cave with mold. Inside it is written that there such a useful air for asthma patients! And he not only is not useful and harmful-a bunch of fungus mildew. Straight kovyrnula finger make sure Fu. Better to spend the money (cave 6 lire) in Archaeology Museum across the road (5 LIRA)

  • Easy access place to see caves right on the beach. Suitable also for families with small children as there are good walk paths/stairs (no strollers).
  • Very interesting scene. Should visit before it gets ruined by people's touch.
  • One of the 2 famous and important cave of Alanya. Small but attractive. It's air may also helps to asthma patients.
  • Small and easy to access caves. Quite beautiful
  • The pictures tell more than words. Just beautiful.
