Damlatas Caves, Alanya

(3.2/5 based on 650+ 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.

  • Not worth it to spend the money. Wet stones. That's all there is. Very small space. See photos of those who was there and chill out.

  • 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.
