Re: Alanya beaches and resorts

Alara river near Avsalla is very unspoilt( at the moment) a relaxing pretty place.
Dim Çay - busy and touristy but still worth a visit
Beaches ... well we have over 25 km for people to explore... some very touristy some not.
The "terrace" above Alanya gives you a incredible view over the whole of the coastline.. well worth a trip up with a camera.

Re: Alanya beaches and resorts

Time is creeping up on us i think the beaches will be open again mid March to start the new season
When i say open i mean all the food huts will be open and the sunbeds out again, time has flown.

There is alot to do on the beaches you have the normal jet sking, parasailing, banana boat, and regular boat trips into the caves which includes a meal on the boat, never been but told, it is best boat trip ever by many.
Buy youself a fishing rod and join the locals in the early evening fishing from the shore, then cook yourself tea as they do.

Cleopatra beach is definatly the best beach and the main beach in Alanya, as you travel east out of Alanya past the castle up on the mountain, you come to Oba, then Mahumutlar, where the beach is known as East beach,which goes for about 25km, some nice sandy areas here but as this side is still under development the beaches do tend to be more rocky, but in time will soon become the New Alanya with beaches of equal tranquility.However the beach doesnt deepen as quickly as Cleopatra beach so is more child friendly.

Re: Alanya beaches and resorts

Lovely beach first went on it 11 yrs ago when there was no hotel and just a little cafe accross the road. The owner came to us on the beach adn offered us the use of his shower as there where none on the beach then. Had a lovely meal ( & shower) there.. I often park on there when I travel between Alanya & Antalya but they have started to charge to park and I not prepared to pay 4ytl for a half hour so will have to find another spot to have my picnic..

Re: Alanya beaches and resorts

i have to agree with Murat and Connie..incekum(fine sand ) is one of the best beaches on this stretch of coast..its a favourite with turkish families on a weekend..theres also a large camping area..caravans and tents for rent..some families come once the schools close in June and spend the whole summer there.
theres a wide choice of beaches in the alanya area...but as has been said some parts tend to shelve steeply...but not incekum..you can wade out a long way and the waters clean.

Lynda don't know if you will get this but for the Alara river head to Alarahan... lovely drive. Call me and I will tell you of the restaurant we go to there to get away from the "madding crowd......."

Re: Alanya beaches and resorts

The beaches on Kleopatra side are lovely but quite steep and a little dangerous for children playing at the waters edge,anyone wanting a child friendly beach on the other side of Alanya, (not Kleopatra side) should try Maren beach, its by far the best beach on the east beach side. It has good toilet facilities and a good restaurant where you can eat or if you prefer they will bring food to the sunlounger for you. The beach attendant is excellent and really looks after you and your belongings are always seem very safe while you are swimming.
Its also a very good place to eat in the evening with lovely views of the castle and coastline.
For anyone who likes karaoke they have a very popular karaoke contest on Thursday night.

Re: Alanya beaches and resorts

we have to agree with A89, Maren beach is really lovely, clean and well cared for. food in the restaurant is very good and we have had some great craic with the friendly waiters and fatih who runs the karaoke. free pickup service can be arranged, they come to mahmutlar to collect us.
