Alanya is the perfect place to live or visit when you’re planning the perfect family getaway to a beachy destination. With relatively good temperature throughout the summer at around 28 degrees Celsius, is really is the perfect destination. When going to a beachy destination, you’re coming for one thing: the beaches, and Alanya has plenty. But what are the best ones? Let’s find out.
For younger children, those under the age of 13, Damlatas beach offers more than just a beautiful beach. Damlatas is also equipped with a huge playground and shaded parks for when the afternoon sun becomes a bit much. It also has walkways to be able to push strollers around for families with very young children.
Damlatas also has a network of caves to explore and is another great thing to do to get out of the sun, as well as snorkeling along the coastline.
Restaurants in the area also offer ice cream to treat that sweet tooth.
Also known as Eastern Beach, Keykubat is one of Alanyas most popular beaches and it shows. It’s much more crowded than the other beaches so if that’s a deterrent, we recommend skipping this beach. This one is especially popular for those with children, however, because of its shallow waters and shaded playground.
However, Cleopatra beach is the most famous beach in all of Alanya, hosting many tourists and locals alike every sunny day of the year. It is relatively close to Damlatas though with just a short walk so you can escape the crowds there if watersports and its unique refreshments don’t interest you.
Come back in the evening when the crowds have died down to the beachside restaurants to enjoy the sunset over the meditteranean sea.
If you don’t mind driving a little bit out of the city, approximately 25km, then head to Incekum beach. Like Keykubut, this beach is perfect for children as the water is shallow, giving them plenty of space to roam and play safely.
