We Love Alanya. It is a city with immeasurable beauty and underestimated potential, promise and power. Alanya is a seaside resort in the Antalya province, on Turkey’s central Mediterranean coast (also known as the Turkish Riviera).
Its wide beaches lined with hotels include Cleopatra Beach, where the Egyptian queen reputedly swam. Alanya Castle, a giant Seljuk-era fort turned open-air museum, stands on a rocky bluff above the beachfront, alongside red tile–roofed Ottoman villas and the octagonal Red Tower, a symbol of the city dating to 1226.
Alanya is mostly a touristic city. This industry remains one of the major economic sectors of the city. However its population is continuously growing, as it welcomes large numbers of expats, especially retirees.
One of our favourite things to do is drive to the Alanya Castle. Day or night, Winter or Summer, it is always a breathtaking trip and we never tire of it, even after 15 years. We have a page devoted to Alanya Castle and we are building on it all the time.
We take you on a drive and show you the highlights through our movie.
