It's well worth visiting the newly opened Boatyard restoration adjacent to the Red Tower ..and if you have the energy climb the steps to the Cannon placements. The combined ticket for the Boatyard & Red Tower is 10TL which is incredibly cheap !!

Great to look round on a hot day. Informative display and great views out towards Alanya and coast.Some walking involved but safe for children save the climb to the Cannon House.

The place was nice to see. Very nice walk. But that time was too hot :) If you are bored with sunbathing, you can visit this place for sure.
