We walked all the way up to the castle. The best part of that trip was waking and everything we saw on our way. Wiev's we're beautiful, but castle itself was a bit disappointment.

The view from the top of the hill was unbelievable. We got a view of the whole of Alanya. We didn't go in to the castle as it wasn't wheelchair friendly.

If you are not really good sport man , take a bus (number 4) or taxi to castle , because it really long way. The castle it self is nothing special , couple ruined walls, but the view on both side of hill are amazing and it worth it to go there and take a nice picture of Cleopatra beach... More

I wouldn't walk all the way up the narrow road to the castle on a dare. Not sure how far it is, but way too much elevation gain for me. We took a taxi (60TL round-trip) with an amiable driver who made a couple of requested stops for us on the way back down the hill. Castle admission itself is... More

Can get easy with a car, not so much to see inside but the view of the port, the beaches and the whole city of Alanya is great.

We walked upto Alanya castle which we felt was a highlight of our trip. We took our time and enjoyed the views and a meal on the way back down. For the castle itself, it certainly isnt worth the entry fee, as you get the same experience on the walk up.

We visited the castle in June 2014 and the views are stunning. We got the bus up from Alanya bus station for 2 lira each. Gorgeous views on the way up in a very comfortable air conditioned bus. It's up a very steep winding road so there was no way we would've made it if we walked! And the bus... More
