How to Spend 2 Days in Alanya

How to Spend 2 Days in Alanya

Two days in Alanya gives you enough time to cruise the coastline, relax on the beach, and take in the sights of this Mediterranean city. From medieval fortifications and cultural performances to water sports and a Turkish hammam, here’s how to experience the best of Alanya in 48 hours.

Day 1: Sun, Sea, and Sightseeing

Morning: Start your visit with a ride on the Alanya Teleferik cable car, which affords stunning views over the city’s beaches as it climbs up to mountaintop Alanya Castle. More photo-worthy vistas await at the top, as well as the ruins of an 11th-century Byzantine Church and medieval battlements. If you’re feeling energetic, hike back down the hill, where you’ll find the Damlatas Caves.

Afternoon: Relax this afternoon at Kleopatra Beach, Alanya’s most popular strand, with miles of sand and calm waters ideal for swimming and water sports. Dive in to swim in the warm Mediterranean waters, or take part in activities such as Jet Skiing, stand-up paddleboarding, or even paragliding.

Night: Dip into Turkish culture tonight at nearby Gloria Aspendos Arena with a performance of the Fire of Anatolia show. Nicknamed the “Turkish Riverdance,” the spectacle features live music and up to 120 dancers. Performances are typically held twice weekly, and advance booking is essential.

Day 2: Cruise the Mediterranean

Morning: Head farther afield today: Set sail on a half- or full-day cruise and discover Turkey’s Turquoise Coast from the water. Choose from such options as a private luxury yacht, a scuba diving excursion, or a party cruise with an open bar. Most tours include lunch onboard, stop for swimming or snorkeling, and visit the Pirates, Lovers, and Phosphorus caves.

Afternoon: On return to Alanya, spend the rest of the afternoon exploring the town. Visit the Red Tower, near the harbor, where you’ll have a great view along the seafront. Then, head to the bazaar to shop for souvenirs and tuck into some tasty Turkish cuisine at one of the many restaurants and food stalls.

Night: After a busy day of swimming and sightseeing, relax and unwind with a Turkish hammam—book a package that includes round-trip hotel transfers for a hassle-free experience. After a traditional Anatolian dinner, spend your final night experiencing Alanya’s renowned nightlife. The harbor’s seafront nightclubs are the place to drink and dance into the early hours, or venture into the town center for traditional pubs and live-music venues.
