There are 3 nice attractions to visit in a very close radius in Alanya downtown - the Damlatas caves, the historic Red Tower and this old shipyard.
The Shipyard is one of the oldest in this part of Europe and is reachable via the Red Tower. Inside one can see ship models, artifacts related to maritime history and ship building equipment.
Therefore, it's logical to buy the combo ticket which gives access to all 3 with a reduced price.

We visited this shipyard together with the Red Tower, separately tickets cost 10tl per person individually, and if you buy them together then it costs 15tl per person for both locations. It's not a difference in price, but they are very close to the shipyard and come through the tower so it was logical. The shipyard is very nice, it’s not something big and imposing but I think it’s worth a visit. The air is very fresh and very pleasant especially if you go in the summer months. What is interesting is that one can roughly see how they built these ships and how they plunged them into the water. Nice place to visit and to make beautiful pictures with a tower in the background.

Favourite place to visit in Alanya. You can feel the History, in the oldest medieval shipyard in Europe constructed in 1227. Great views looking out over the Bay. Visiting hours 9.00 am until 19.00 pm in the Summer. Visited with the combined Ticket which was 14 TL for the shipyard, red tower & damlatas caves. 10 TL for tower & shipyard. 7 TL for just the shipyard. Reconstruction of ships, artifacts, ship building equipment, 5 Tunnels, walkway to 2 storage rooms at the back. Have to bend down, quite low, under a wall, to get to it, so not great for any disabilities people might have. Single person with a pushchair & child might also struggle to got under. A great price for just over a £ 1.00 to see.

The old shipyard of Alanya is located right near to Kizilkale (Red Tower). There is no entrance fee, but you have to walk (carefully) between some scaffolds and over unfinished metal stairs. You can also go at night (even more carefully), but the door to the actual shipyard is locked. It opens the same time as the Red Tower (9 - 19,30).
The old shipyard, built in the XIII century, was for me an interesting unique (so far) place to visit. There is also a watch tower similar to the Red Tower which offers a nice view over the city and harbor.
You should reserve 45 minutes to visit entirely.
Near the shipyard there is a nice beach with calm waters.

My family and I explored the whole Alanya peninsula with the castle, its markets, vendors, restaurants, and café’s. But the highlight of our day was the Shipyard. All day we had been disappointed by the sites and high amount of entry fees for everything including parking. We though this day a bad idea and loss; it still was as far as the amount of money this one castellated peninsula took from our wallets, but after the Shipyard we finally felt like we saw something worth the whole side trip and it raised our spirits.
You have to walk to the Shipyard from the red Tower which has nicely marked paths. Following these paths you’ll walk among the castle wall and see remains and replicas of cannons and catapults. This walk feels much cooler with parts of it shaded and feeling the breeze off the Sea. The shipyard does have another entry fee which at first we struggled to convince ourselves to purchase, but once inside they have replicas built to life size of a first century crane, the skeleton of a ship, a ships eagles nest and mast, a battering ram (with rams head) and a few other things. The size of the ship yard is neat and the arched interior impressive. The temperature is also much cooler inside. The security guards and attendants were pleasant. Overall it’s a small attraction and will only take you 5-10 mins to walk through, but so far for Alanya I have it as the highest rated attraction. If you want to understand why the rest of our Alanya sightseeing was a bad experience you can read my review of it under Alanya Castel.

Walk along the fortified sea wall next to the Red Tower, the sea looks so inviting. Duck through the low entrance at the end and you will find the Shipyard. 5 tunnels built into the rock where Alanya's boats were built. Surprising big. Worth a short trip and again heat views.

It was one of the rarest chances to understand the Discoveries, the Crusades and the traveling in the Mediterranean Sea. You do learn a lot with the artifacts displayed. Some of them are astonishing, like catapults and other wooden weapons. You also learn a lot about shipping itself. Do not miss it... (Feb13)

A short walk on the ramparts from the Red Tower is Alanya`s second landmark, the Shipyard. Built by Alladeen Keykubat. It`s not spectacular but a nice place to visit if one happens to be in the area. there is an entrance fee of 5 liras. In the docks there are exhibitions about maritime history and shipbuilding. Also, there is a little old praying room, which can be used even today.
