Cruise to Alanya!
 
Alanya is one of the most charming holiday resorts on the Turkish Riviera, boasting a magnificent historical heritage and excellent tourist attractions.
 
Verdant tree laden mountains and fertile plains, sandy beaches, idyllic coves, canyons, rivers, waterfalls, forests and caves create a fascinating landscape. For nine months of the year the climate is sunny and warm with average sea temperatures of 22°C.
 
The city dates back to the fourth century B.C. and reached its most glorious historical peak under the Seljuks when, in 1220, Sultan Alaeddin Keykubat made this former pirate hideout his winter residence and a naval base for the empire. A 13th Century fortress still crowns the headland while the octagonal Red Tower and the ancient shipyard dominate the harbour.
 
The picturesque bazaar, which is closed to traffic, is a paradise of handicraft shops. The restaurants on the waterfront promenade, together with cafes, bars, clubs and tavernas in the harbour district ensure a very colourful and vibrant nightlife.
 
The region is awash with archeological sites, many located in natural beauty spots. Alanya’s Castle, Dockyard, Red Tower were added to the UNESCO World Heritage Tentative List in 2009.
 
All of these attractions can be visited by passengers arriving at Alanya Cruise port. A new marina provides berths for 287 yachts plus a shopping centre, swimming pool and leisure facilities.
 
Major improvements are being made to the city with a focus on improving accessibility for disabled visitors.
