Alanya the ultimate place to be! for lots of bars, drinks, beaches! and interesting people to meet!
Alanya is a popular seaside resort on the Turkish Riviera, east of Side. This medium-sized city’s most dominant landmark is a 250 metre-high rock. At the top of the rock is an old fortress that dates back to the 13th century and offers a visual treat, with impressive views of the sea, port, East Beach and Cleopatra Beach. Cleopatra Beach is obviously named after the seductive Egyptian queen, who bathed her feet here daily during her honeymoon. Her Roman lover Mark Antony decided afterwards to give her the beach as a gift.
The beach continues to attract sweethearts of all kinds, as does the famous ‘Grotto of the beloved’. The grotto extends nearly 400 metres into the mountain, has an intimate ambience and ends nearly 10 metres above sea level. Those who dare can dive into the cool waters from here…
The Pirate Cave is also worth a visit. Due to the narrow passageways in the cave, large ships were unable to enter, making the cave a popular hideout for pirates. It is relatively warm in the winter and cool in the summer here. Also make sure to check out the spectacular stalactites and stalagmites that have formed inside the cave.
Diversity of tastes
Alanya has a typical Mediterranean climate. The weather is almost always agreeable, also because the surrounding Taurus Mountains block the wind. This creates pleasant conditions for both people and the environment, and has resulted in a wide variety of crops, from lemons, bananas, oranges and pineapples to guavas, papayas, dates and coffee beans. This diversity is reflected in the local cuisine, with something for every taste. So surprise your sweetheart with a trip to Alanya and follow in the footsteps of Cleopatra.
Alanya Historical Side Seeing:
Alanya Castle is obviously a landmark of the city, as it is seen basically from every point. The castle walls date back to the 13th century and are built on top of Byzantine fortifications. The walls are 6,5 km long and include 140 towers, including the most famous Red Tower. Inside the castle one can find Byzantine church, mosque, caravanserai and numerous cisterns and villas. From top of the Castle walls you'll get the best view over Alanya city, Cleopatra beach and turquoise waters. Truly breathtaking!!!
There are two beaches in Alanya. This one is on the west side of the Alanya castle an it's called Cleopatra beach.
At Cleopatra beach the sand is more fine corned than on the East side. There are more waves at the Cleopatra side. The water is wonderful, warm and clean. It's actually warmer in the ocean than in the pool at the hotels.
Party and Nightlife in Alanya:
For all the people who likes to party day and night then Alanya is the place to go to. The best party places in located in the bazar area just by the harbour area.

Great Clubs and Bars:
Robin hood the best place in Alanya!
Me and my sister visited Alanya in September 2012 for 10 days. I am in my late teens and my sister in her early 20's. We were very interested in the clubbing scene. One of the first main clubs we tried first was robin hood and it was amazing! Noting compared to it. It was so good that we went back every night! There's 4 floors of different music so its good to change levels every now and then. Out fave floor was the top floor with mostly dance music being played.
This is a great club to meet people from all over the world. The staff are very friendly in here too. Drinks are average prices 18TL for a cocktail (but downstairs before going into the main club it was usually 2for1 on cocktails which was good.) A beer was usually under 10TL (maybe even less to be honest I can't really remember that much!
Me and my sister loved Alanya so much that we are going back there this year in September again!!
