Dim Cave, Alanya

4.3
#3 of 21 in Nature in Antalya Province
Explore the various formations caused by years of rain and snow runoff through the limestone rocks at Dim Cave. Located on the top of a mountain by a river, the two caves are estimated to be one million years old, but paths within the caves are smoothed and well lit, one of which leads to a small lake inside the cave. Enjoy a picnic in the nearby gardens as you take in the panoramic view of the nearby fortress. Public buses regularly provide transportation from the town to the caves. Dress warmly, as it tends to be cooler in the caves, and note that there are many steps up to and inside the cave that may prove difficult for those with mobility issues.

    We are here being look because it is very close to the hotel. For 6 TL could I go in (child was free). Step down and that was it. What there was was nice, but have larger and more beautiful stalactite caves seen

    The trip to the Grotto is up through mountains and hills. The cave itself is almost on the top of the mountain with really nice views. The cave itself is nice and with light in various places. At the bottom is a small stalagmite there with good imagination, looks like a woman. It is is worth visiting. Will recommend to snatch a private trip up there, possibly just a taxi. It's a better experience without the 200 other people from a bus

Where to stay in Alanya

The majority of the accommodations in the historical city of Alanya feature mid-range, three- and four-star hotels. Many of these offer all-inclusive, affordable packages along the coastline, which are generally within walking distance from the amenities, discos, and restaurants (or you can use the visitor-friendly bus system, which offers stops on almost every corner). Directly above the cape lies the old town, which presents a more authentic depiction of the city's heritage. Opt to stay here if you're looking for something a little less mainstream and a little more romantic, while still moderately priced. Building heights are restricted in the old town, guaranteeing uninterrupted views of the sea.
