THE FOUR AMAZING BEACHES IN ALANYA
1. INCEKUM BEACH
Perfect spot for the ones who enjoy fresh air, sunbathing on fine sand and swimming in the blue sea. The beach is located in Avsallar town and just as the name Incekum (fine sand) foretells, the sand is very fine. The promenade areas are full of blue and green colours which mix together makes Alanya special.
2. DAMLATASH BEACH
Located just a short walk away from Alanya center in the Saray district, it starts just where the kill of the castle ends. The view from the beach is magnificent. The hotels near the beach are very popular among foreign visitors and most of them are open all year around. The sand is different compared to the sands on the other side of the castle and they are mostly kept clean, the beach is wide and really beautiful.
3. CLEOPATRA BEACH
The beach starts where Damlatas beach ends west from the Castle Hill and continues all the way to the entrance of Alanya. The clear water is the main feature of the bay. The waves hit the skirts of the hill. When diving with goggles, you can see the fish and everything in the water. The bay consists of large stones and continues to the Castle Hill. The reason why it is named after Cleopatra is because the rumors say that the Egyptian Queen swam here together with Roman Emperor Marcus Antonius in this beach.
4. ULASH BEACH
Ulash beach is located 6 km from Alanya center and it has its own small bay. When you visit the beach you can have lunch in the restaurant or make your own barbeque and then enjoy the sandy beach. The beach is very popular and people enjoy spending the whole day there.
