Alanya is a large sea-side town. We have maps and lots of information about the Historical Sites In Alanya, Eating Out In Alanya, Shopping In Alanya, Night Life In Alanya, the Sailing, boat trips And Diving In Alanya and other Places To Visit and places of interest in or near the sea side town of Alanya, Turkey.
We strongly advise that guests who are coming on holiday print off information about what they would like to see as well as information about the places they would like to visit. We suggest that guests bring an up to date guide book which are always available at the departure airport. Information is available at the villas, but the information on the website is much more detailed and up to date. A detailed map is essential and any good guide book on Turkey will have one. It is much easier to get a guide book in the UK than in Turkey.
