    Dim Brook takes its source from the Taurus and flows to the Mediterranean sea from the east of Alanya; there are picnic areas on the coast of it which is 15 km inside from the coast of the Mediterranean. In summer the tables of field restaurants under the old plane trees are set in the brook. The guests sit there bare feet in the brook. In some restaurants, tables are on the rafts. The valley covered by forests is cool even in the summer. The commonly preferred dish in this area is usually trout. The trout are kept in the pools in restaurant gardens. They are usually fried, cooked in a crock or grilled.

    Dim Magarasi

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the many magnificent views within the cave

    The Dim Cavern is rather a large cave, to be honest, measuring about 400 meters, end to end. From the entrance you can either turn right, for a short 50 meter walk, or you can turn left, for a longer trek, measuring 350 meters, and ending in a small lake. The Cave is quite a busy place (plenty of tourists), but it’s well worth visiting anyway, as the stalagmites & stalactites are very well formed, and the cave is well preserved. (It’s been estimated at about 1 million years old). It was only discovered in 1999 (1984?). It’s a much more spectacular cave than Damlatas Magarasi, below the Castle in Alanya. Entry is 9.50 Lira per person.

    When visiting the Red Tower and the Alanya Castle ... don't forget to look around and, enjoy the sea-view and, also the land-views. Like the Eastern Beach view included clouds ... maybe just like in Cleopatra times ... enjoy your trip!

    Okay, it's not off the beaten path, it's quite touristy but I think everyone who visit Turkey should see Pamukkale and the ancient town of Hierapolis.

    Go to my travelogue on my Turkey page to read more about.

    Take a picture with a monkey

    Monkey

    There is a man that goes around the Ataturk street (main street) with a monkey in a diaper, if you want you can take a picture with the little thing.

    He takes 20 Lira (about 10 Euro) but you can haggle down the price more.

    It is located 12 km east of Alanya, on the slope of Cebel-i Reis Mountain of 1,649 metres. It has an altitude of 232 m. The cave is introduced to the visitors in 1998 and it is the second biggest cave known to the visitors. It is estimated to be 1 million years old. There are two paths inside the cave one is of 50 m, the other of 360 metres. There is a small lake towards the and of the cave.
    The 360 m. Long path is prepared and illuminated, so as to provide a pleasant excursion offering a tremendous scenery of stalagmite and stallactite for the visitors. After the excursion you can go down the path to Dim Creek valley or you can take the walk up the cave from the picnic area near the creek. There is a panoramic view of Alanya Fortress at the slope where the cave takes place. There are public buses going to the cave. Entrance is due to payment.

    Sunset at Cleopatra Beach

    The sunset at Cleopatra Beach is magical. This is something you should not miss.

    You can take a swim as the sun goes down, the water is warm all day and night.
