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.

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

The cave is easily accessible from the Alanya centre. It is opened for everyone without a need for a guide. So, usually there will not be any waiting time. The fee is also low. The cave is not long and what is fine is the fact that there are benches there, so you can spend a time there acc. to... More

The cave is a small but interesting. It is worth to see in the meantime as you will come back from the beach of Cleopatra.

Not suitable for wheel chair users. Allow a minimum of 15 mimutes to visit, usually in and out in less than 1/2 hour. Try to... More
