Get around in Alanya
Walking is best option in the busy town centre.
For anything beyond a reasonable walk (distance, luggage, heat), there’s sure to be a dolmuş going your way. Wait at a bus stop, or flag them down anywhere. The word “dolmuş” literally means “stuffed” and they aim to live up to this. Expect to pay around 2 TL per person for a ride in town. Also you can rent an electric scooter or bicycle.
Tourist attraction near Alanya
The Citadel (Kale). Occupies a hilly peninsula surrounded by the sea on three sides, and by the modern parts of the city on the other. Although the signs showing way to ‘Castle’ (Kale) points to the highest parts of the walls, the walls can be followed starting right at the sea level. Particularly interesting in (or next to) the citadel is the tip of the peninsula formed by a high and narrow extension of rocks, jutting long into the sea. This formation is named Adam Atacağı in Turkish (pronounced aa-daam aa-taa-jaa-a), literally “man thrower”, as here was where people condemned to death were pushed into the sea.
The Red Tower (Kızıl Kule). The hexagonal tower of the citadel which is nearest to sea.
Old Shipyard (Tersane). Built by the Seljuqs, this structure dates back to 1228. Located very near the Red Tower.
Alanya Archaeological Museum.
Damlataş Cave (near Kleopatra Beach).
Caves around the town, accessible by boat trips.
