Alanya is Turkey's main holiday destination thanks to its warm, calm seas, long golden beaches and fascinating local history.
A holiday to Alanya is the ultimate combination of modern and traditional with new shops and restaurants mixed in with great natural beauty and amazing beaches.
Visitors can spend their days on the beach or learning about the resort's history. Its ancient harbour and historic Old Town are ideal for sightseeing with numerous excursions to nearby archeological sites also available.
Who is Alanya suitable for?
Alanya holidays have a lively nightlife, making it an ideal resort for the younger crowd. But its rich history makes it anything but a simple beach and bar resort. Holidaymakers of all ages tend to visit for a relaxing beach break with added culture and activities.
Sightseeing in Alanya
Take a trip to Alanya's Old Town, which is located near the harbour and set within ancient city walls. Here you can wander down the narrow winding streets to get a sense of local Turkish life inside the traditional stone Ottoman houses.
Whilst in the city, visit popular tourist spots Hadrian's Gate, Republic Square and The Clock Tower. The 14th century Seljuk fortress that looks out over Alanya is also worth a trip.
If that's too much culture for you then there's always Europe's largest waterpark Sealanya!
Eating out in Alanya
You'll find a wide choice of dining options in Alanya for all tastes and budgets. Most restaurants serve international cuisine but around the harbour area you'll find more Turkish fare.
Try a traditional Turkish kebab or share a mezze platter. Finish off your meal with local baklava and thick Turkish coffee.
Or why not experience true Turkey with a Turkish Night - sit back and relax with local delicacies whilst being entertained by Cossacks, belly dancers and folk groups.
