Prior to visiting the cave, the 1 photo i saw showed people coming down a long staircase. I presumed this to be part of a large complex. It sadly isn't. It is a single staircase that goes into a single cave. The cave is noticeable by its constant warm temperature. Worth a visit if you are in the town looking... More

Nice located very close to the city in Alanya. A small but very nice cave with high humidity. Easy to access. No cues. If you have some spare time it's worth a visit.

Near to the Kleopatra beach. You can buy joint ticket to the Red Tower, Alanya Shipyard and Damlatas Caves.

We had every intention during our stay in Alanya of visiting the Dim Caves up in the mountains and were also looking forward to seeing what these small caves were like, given some of the reviews. Well we were pleasantly surprised. They are just great and for only 6TL entrance worth a visit in anyone's books. It is small but... More

We visited the caves as a day to get out of the sunshine and see some tourist sights and we were not at all disappointed. The caves can be found at the far end of the Kleopatra beach and are signposted as you get nearby if you go via the road. There is a small fee of 6TL to get... More

The cave is at the end of Cleopatra beach underneath the castle. It's nice enough if you've never been in a cave before, but don't travel to it, as it's a case of a quick walk down the steps, then back up again. At the end, if you are small, you can crawl under a bit of a passage, but... More

I was privileged to be here almost as they opened and thus had the caves to myself, the scenery is as breath-taking outside as it is inside. If you have ever visited Wokey Hole in the UK then you will notice a stark contrast. here there is no background music, no flashy lighting, just the peace and beauty of nature... More
