Damlatas Caves, Alanya

#3 of 6 in Nature in Alanya
Cave · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
When construction crews began building the harbor in 1948, nobody expected that a dynamite blast would unearth a geological wonder hidden below the city. The air inside the cave has proven beneficial to those suffering from asthma and other respiratory conditions, which is what initially drew visitors from all over Turkey to Alanya and established the city as a renowned tourist destination. The temperature inside the cave remains a steady 22 C (71 F) throughout the year, so make sure to bring appropriate clothes. Because of stairs near the entrance, the cave is not easily accessible for wheelchair users. Damlatas Caves is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , online itinerary creator Edition.

  • The cave is nice. Very small but still nice. The price to enter is 1.1 euro so is very cheap. Enjoy the view :)  more »
  • Very nice place to see the creation of nature; however, it is very damp and not recommended for heart patients. Saying that, it is a popular place to treat asthma. Small size well let with steep stairs. Outside there are some restaurants and a public park. A nearby lovely place recommended for waffles and on-sight handmade ice cream wraps.
  • Not too big. You can do the cave in 10 mins it's nice and cool inside. Well lit with stairs leading down into cave where you can take pics.
