Alanya is a small tourist city along the southern coast of Turkey with a unique geography and a long history. The city grew up around a tall rocky peninsula on top of which are many of the city's sights can be found. The high promontory of the peninsula offers visitors a large castle and fortress that contains remnants of a variety of eras. From the cruise jetty you can see the Red Tower of the Seljuk Era and the Tersane, an ancient dock where ships were built and repaired. The massive castle is primarily from the era of the Seljuk Turks. Views looking toward the city are stunning, including the marina and jetty on the east side and Cleopatra's beach on the west. The area beaches are long and well-developed and offer exciting activities from motorized water sports to what is reputed to be the Mediterranean's largest water park. Besides the Castle, the area offers some important historical sites from the Greek and Roman eras, including the peninsula settlement of Side and, a little farther away, the classic sights at Perga and Aspendos. Often overlooked are some excellent natural attractions such as Manavgat Falls and the Green Canyon, where you can take a lovely cruise and dip into crystaline waters.
