If you are looking for a romantic holiday to Turkey for yourself and your partner or an action-packed family holiday, Alanya is a wonderful holiday resort on the southeast coast of Turkey that has something to offer everyone. With an all-year round Mediterranean climate, glorious beaches, exciting attractions and luxurious five-star hotels, it is little wonder why Alanya is quickly becoming one of the most popular holiday destinations in Europe.
Alanya Holidays are available all year round
Alanya has an all-year round climate and even during the winter months the weather can be warm and sunny. Peak season runs from May until October with high temperatures reaching up to 31ºc in July. The winter months are colder, with temperatures ranging from 10ºc to 20ºc, and rainfall is particularly high in December and January. Whilst the spring and autumn months tend to be slightly cooler than the summer months with temperatures ranging from 25ºc to 28ºc, Alanya is less crowded during these off-peak seasons and yet the weather is still desirable. The most ideal time to visit is at the start of the summer season in May when there are not so many tourists and the weather is starting to heat up. Furthermore, there are many exciting events that take place in May such as the Alanya International Culture and Art Festival and the Tourism and Art Festival, both of which feature street exhibitions, shows and musicians.

Alanya's beaches and attractions
For those holiday-makers that want to soak up the sun and spend their holiday enjoying the beach, Cleopatra Beach comes highly recommended. This white sandy beach not only has many sporting activities to offer such as jet-skiing, snorkelling, scuba diving and parasailing, but is also the best place to go to book adventure excursions such as jeep safaris, quad biking and boat trips where you will have the opportunity to see dolphins and turtles. With beautifully landscaped gardens and a plethora of cafes and restaurants within easy reach, Cleopatra Beach provides holiday-makers with the perfect setting for a fantastic holiday.
There are many attractions in Alanya that the entire family can enjoy such as the Water Planet Aquapark. This huge waterpark has 24 different waterslides that cater to all ages, including the daring and high-speed Kamikaze free-fall slide and various children’s slides. Boasting a lazy river for ultimate relaxation, a wave pool, authentic Turkish baths and bungee jumping opportunities, a visit to the Water Planet Aquapark is a perfect choice for a family day out.
If you enjoy visiting historic monuments, Alanya is an ideal holiday destination. The Alanya Fortress sits on the hillside high above Cleopatra Beach with walls that stretch well over 6000 metres starting and ending at The Red Tower. It is also home to Alanya Castle which dates back to the thirteenth century and is now an open-air museum filled with Byzantine, Seljuk and Ottoman monuments. The Alanya Archaeological Museum is another location where visitors can enjoy the history and experience the culture of this breathtaking resort.
