With its strategic position on a small peninsula jutting out into the Mediterranean, Alanya was once a stronghold for a multitude of empires over the centuries. This is particularly evident with the 13th century Alanya Castle and its walls that overlook the city and split the town’s sandy beach into two, with Cleopatra Beach on one side and the Eastern Beach on the other. Today, Alanya is one of Turkey’s most visited destinations, offering outdoor adventures like scuba diving and jeep safari tours, historic sites like The Red Tower and Tersane, and beachfront restaurants, cafés, and bars, plus a nightlife renowned throughout the country. If you want to do a little more exploring, popular daytrips include the Roman ruins of Side, which features 2nd century temples of Athena and Apollo, and the famous waterfalls, minarets, and mosque of Manavgat.
