Alanya is one of the most popular tourist resorts on Turkey's Mediterranean coast. It is a beautiful holiday centre with its beautiful sandy beaches, modern hotels and motels, as well as numerous fish restaurants, cafes, clubs and bars.
Excavations have shown that the Alanya area was inhabited as early as prehistoric times. Alanya first appears in the 2nd century B.C as a pirate lair and it was known then as Korakesion. In 1220 The Seljuk Sultan Alaeddin Keykubad took the city and had the great castle and dockyards built.
Today there is a magnificent and formidable citadel at the upper end of the town.
Nearby close to the seashore is a cave called Damlataş is much visited by asthma and rheumatism sufferers. Near the cave Alanya's Archeological museum contains numerous interesting works and is well worth a visit. By boat you can reach three other caves: the Phosphorescent Cave with its phosphoric rocks, Pirates Cave (Kizlar Cave), where pirates held their women prisoners, and Lovers' Cave (Asiklar Cave). The cool shade of Dim Brook Valley, 15 km east of Alanya, is an ideal place to get away and relax. Alanya is the only place in Turkey where bananas are grown.
The sea all around Alanya is excellent for swimming. Alanya is a paradise of sun, sea and sand.
