Top things to See and Do in Alanya
There are two large sandy beaches: Cleopatra's beach - two kilometres of pale sand with shingle - is one of the finest in Turkey; Alanya beach is almost as impressive but with rocky areas at the water's edge in many places. Facing south, both are sun kissed from dawn to dusk, and there are a variety of watersports on offer. For a change of scene, check out Ulas and Incekum beaches which are well worth a visit.
