Alanya is a seaside resort town situated in Antalya Province of the Mediterranean region of Turkey. Tourists are attracted to the area because of moderate prices, warm sea, the best sandy beaches, access to Antalya's historic sites, and fine cuisine. Other outdoor tourist activities include wind surfing, parasailing, banana boating and Turkey's largest go-kart track.
The town is divided east-west by a rocky peninsula, which is the distinctive feature of the city. The presence of the Taurus Mountain in close proximity to the sea causes fog, in turn creating visible rainbows many mornings.
On the peninsula stands Alanya Castle, a Seljuk era citadel dating from 1226. Most major sights in the town are found inside and around the castle. Inside there is the Süleymaniye mosque and caravanserai built by Suleiman the Magnificent. The Kızıl Kule (Red Tower) another famous building in Alanya is situated near the Castle. Also the Tersane, a medieval drydock built in 1221. The Alanya Museum includes a large bronze Hercules statue, ceramics, and Roman limestone ossuaries, as well as historic copies of the Qur'an. In the Damlatas Cave everybody can explore the eerie misshapen rock formations. The Dim Valley and Dim Cave are also very popular destinations for trips.
