The total constant population of the city and its regions is over 300 thousand people. In summer and autumn, the figure is higher due to the increase in tourists.

As you approach Alanya, the first views offer a range of three, four and five-star hotels along with guest houses on either side. Residential complexes are located on a hill and provide spectacular views of the coast and its surroundings. Foreigners own nearly 141,000 properties in the city.

When planning a purchase of a Real Estate in a resort town, you should focus on the budget and preferences and the housing area. Each of the regions is interesting in its own way, which allows you to choose the best conditions, taking into account your wishes:
Every suburb in Alanya deserves a visit. By doing this, you will find that each one varies in its ability to provide what you might be looking for in a property. Some suburbs have height restrictions placed on the apartment blocks, so you will only find low-rise accommodation, whereas, in other suburbs, you will find apartments with up to 12 floors.
Beautiful mountain landscapes, peace, well-maintained beaches, and a lot of vacation spots - these factors can be decisive when you are looking for property in the resort town.
Those who want to buy an apartment in the centre of Alanya should get acquainted with the Damlatas region. Buying a property here is an opportunity to enjoy all the benefits of the central part of the city and stay close to nature. In this region is Cleopatra's beach, a wide promenade, a park, public fitness equipment and tennis courts. Real estate here is growing in price due to the lack of places for building and the restriction in the height of five floors.
One of the furthest regions is Demirtas, an elite and prestigious area. Living here gives you a totally different experience as there are fewer tourists, very few noisy hotels and guest houses, and it is near Gazipasa Airport. There are many advantages to living in Demirtas: it’s tranquil and quiet, less air pollution, clean sea and beaches and magnificent mountain landscapes. Due to a large number of coniferous forests on the mountain slopes, the air here smells of pine and orange blossom.
If you are interested in smaller, more elite and luxurious complexes then you should consider Kestel. Buildings here are restricted to five floors. This region is slowly becoming more developed but it still retains its green, wide-open vibe. In this region, there is a large university (Keykubat and a branch of Akdeniz).
Cikcilli is located on a hill, four kms from the coast. It is also a quieter area with a range of medium-sized complexes and some apartments here are built with up to 12 floors.
Elite residential complexes are built on the great hills of Konakli. Unlike other areas, there are no highways between the houses and the beach area. The seashore is located within walking distance from places of residence. This allows you to be in the centre of resort life and be closer to nature.
Tosmur, a 10-minute drive from the city centre, has quickly become a prestigious area in only a few years. This district stretches to the hills of Alanya, all the way to the coast. On one side, you are surrounded by orange and lemon plantations, coniferous forests, and on the other side, you can be right near the sea. A local attraction is the Dimcay River, along which there is a small walking area. Housing here is not very expensive, but the area is developing. This leads to a constant increase in prices per square meter.
Oba is a rapidly developing area separated by a new road with one half being closer to the hills and mountains and the other closer to the beach and sea. Apartments here tend to be in complexes of varying sizes. There are lots of shops and bars in this area, making it a popular location for tourists.
The Kargicak district in the city's eastern part offers a quiet life for large families. Groves of oranges and banana plantations surround it. The Taurus Mountains protect the area from the winds. There are beautiful sandy beaches, the total length of which is about 5 km. Also, it has a well-developed infrastructure and transport links. Real estate in the area is represented by luxury villas, apartments, and walled complexes near the beach area. Most properties are being built on the hills, so the windows offer beautiful views of the coast and mountains.
This beautiful, vibrant city is full of tourist attractions and its wonderful climate leads you to have a long and healthy life. After seeing all the properties available in Alanya, we hope you will choose one that will provide you with happiness, comfort and prosperity for many years.
