We've been here during the day. It was really hot, so we took a cab (it's a really long way to walk, especially if you have kids with you). It was really great, the view is spectacular. Probably is worth to go also in the evening.

We did a quick stop on the Castle after going up the mountain with a tax. The castle was interesting, but we went primarily up here for the view and due to there were some Geocaches nearby.

We took a Taxi to the top of the hill to see the castle. It was a winding trip up the hill, but the view was beautiful and exquisite. Not only that- but We found merchants selling some beautiful needlework embroidery and some baroque pearl necklaces. The souvenirs were at very reasonable prices. You can see the old ships going...

if you go in a hot weather I prefer to catch a taxi to the top of the hill(where the castle is located) and return down to the beach by walking (good small streets and tracks full of cute houses with nice view to the bay are revealed). The hill splits Alanya city into two long bays which can both... More

Really amazing views from the top to bith sides from the mountains. The castle itself is large and worthy to pay around 5 euros (15 liras) to go inside and watch other views

I loved the view from the top. The castle itself is a Really gorgeous and historical place. There is also a mosque very near to the castle which is 500 m away. There are also local shops and markets on the way down from the castle. The best and cheapest way to get there is by bus...as it is much... More

To see the castle and hear the history and enjoy the fantastic view should be a must first time you visit Alanya. Take a taxi or the dolmud up and walk down and enjoy the many small shops with homemade knitting and sewing and lamps from kalabas to good prices, and enjoy the view all the way down. Maybe you...
