With its wide range of amenities, friendly atmosphere and modern, vibrant environment, a stay in Alanya is guaranteed to bring pleasure to both adults and children alike.

The beautiful sandy beaches along Turkey's southern Mediterranean coastline are perfect for those who enjoy lazy days soaking up the sun, but Alanya also offers numerous pursuits for those who enjoy physical activities. Why not try scuba diving, white water rafting or take a jeep safari? Mountain biking is also popular and, for those with a somewhat more 'dare-devil' disposition, hang gliding and bungee jumping are available to try. There's even an international golf course in Belek, just an hour away by car.

Shopping is abundant in Alanya where textiles, carpets, leather goods and gold are just a few of the wide variety of goods available at very reasonable prices. Several international supermarket chains are represented within the town and the local Friday market provides the perfect opportunity to try out your haggling skills. 

Attractively set by the harbour and within ancient Roman walls, the old quarter of Alanya offers tranquil surroundings in which to relax and soak up the atmosphere of times past. The Archaeological Museum, which houses one of the finest collections in the country, is also worth visiting. 

You will also find that you're ideally situated for exploring quaint Turkish harbours, picturesque coves, towering cliffs, waterfalls, Roman ruins and numerous ancient villages. A drive into the nearby Taurus Mountains is always popular as is a visit to the Dimcay valley where you can swim in the cool river or enjoy a meal of freshly caught trout before returning to Alanya.

Speaking of food, whether your preference is for Turkish cuisine, an international menu or a substantial roast dinner, the 2000 plus restaurants in Alanya mean there will always be something available that will whet your appetite. As one of Europe's premier value-for-money resorts, a three-course meal with wine in Alanya will average about €12 (£8.50) person. 

At night, the town's countless clubs and bars bring the harbour area to life offering entertainment catering for most tastes, from the traditionally Turkish to Irish folk music and trendy clubs that appeal to the younger generation. Many bars in Alanya stay open until 4am.

There are two public hospitals in the area but it's highly recommended that you use valid travel insurance as private hospitals are better equipped for dealing with the needs of tourists.

Although tap water is chlorinated, you are advised to buy bottled drinking water from reputable outlets when staying in Turkey.

Compared with other Southern European countries, property prices in Turkey are extremely competitive. Combined with the low cost of living (electricity bill for a 2-bedroom apartment in Alanya is typically €20 / £15 per month), owning a property here makes sound financial sense.

Thanks to its temperate climate, Alanya is one of the few Turkish year-round tourist resorts.

Winters are typically wet and humid whilst summers are hot and dry with the average year-round temperature being 19°C. July and August are the hottest months with average air temperatures of 28°C and water temperatures being just one degree lower.

The stunning scenery around Alanya is largely due to this temperate climate which allows banana plants, oranges, coffee and various other exotic plants to grow and thrive.
