We went to the cave because it is in the heart of the town of alanya at the foot of alanya castle and also because the tickets are cheap.the cave is very small indeed and the conditions are very hard to bear inside the cave where co2 gas levels are high there and it is really suffocation.not recommended.dim cave is...

Recently walked along kleopatra beach and stumbled on the cave. We had heard about it but didn't expect it to be just on the edge of the beach. The cave itself was very cool.... Is very humid but it's a very small cave and you can't really spend a lot of time in there. Worth a look and for 5tl... More

Always associate caves in hills or mountains, so surprised to find one right on the beach. However, usual format: stalagmites and stalagtites and fairly voluminous. Well worth a visit.

The cave was discovered in 1948. Soon they found out that The aircontent with 25% carbondioxyde was asthma healing, provided that asthma patients could deal with The 92 - 98% humidity. Persons with a heart condition are advised not to enter The cave. They night get into trouble. The stalactites, stalagmites and columns are beautiful. The silence in the cave.... More

Do visit this cave, it's only small but worth a visit if your in the area. one main chamber that has stalactites and stalagmites and pretty lighting. Not much really but it's really cheap to get in. Be warned though it can get VERY crowded as bus tours stop there.

This cave is not very big but still impressive and well worth visiting. Another advantage is its situation close to Alanya centre and virtually on Kleopatra beach. .

Damlataş cave is a small cave located next to Damlataş beach. It is cold and humid inside the cave which is nice since it's pretty hot outside. If you are curious how it looks in a cave and haven't got the time to go to other caves in Alanya, the Damlataş cave is worth the visit.

The entrance can be a bit easy to miss because of the bazaar all around it, just follow the tourists. Interesting experience to go into a two story cave next to the beach. It has only a small entrance fee. It was a bit crowded with unruly children but apart from little annoyance our visit was a nice one. There... More
