The harbor, Alanya

On the southern coast of turkey, The harbor draws tourists with shopping and views of the water. Docked ships line the waterfront, including several large pirate-themed ships. The site brings shoppers to bargain hunt. Walk toward the lighthouse, bargain with the shopkeepers selling handicrafts and trinkets, and explore the many nearby shops and restaurants. Many visitors opt to a boat trip around the area or to the sea caves. Or go on a dinner cruise to see the area lit up at night.

    An enjoyable trip. We took the public bus. The ride was smooth. The view and the cleanliness of the site makes the ride so worthy.  more »

    Recommend taking a stroll one evening where you can see the light up the mountain toward the Castle and the many ships that form the port. There are a lot of restaurants along the harbour. They are generally quite expensive, but of course also has a fantastic view. Enjoy the atmosphere and the delicious climate. Take a trip up in the city and feel the emotions of many traders. Are you at a good city tour, there is plenty of opportunity for it nearby and at the port.

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.
