Kleopatra Beach, conveniently close to the city centre, is one of the most famous beaches in Alanya. The beach is named after the ancient Egyptian queen – legend has it that Cleopatra fell in love with this beach after swimming in its azure waters and sunbathing on its golden sands.
Kleopatra Beach stretches for about 2 km and is divided into numbered sections where sun loungers are available for rent. As expected, it gets very crowded in the summer. If you walk slightly further away from the city centre (towards the longer end of the beach), you can easily find empty spots on the sand to lay your towel on for free. Several beach bars, restaurants, toilets and showers are available.

Portakal Beach is a km-long sandy public beach with clear blue waters and a pebbly sea bottom, just 10 minutes’ drive east of Alanya’s city centre. It’s less crowded than some of Alanya’s more popular beaches, which means you can peacefully enjoy a seascape with the Taurus mountain as its backdrop.
Adrenaline junkies enjoy a wide range of water sports, including jet skiing and windsurfing. Cafes, restaurants and standard beach facilities are available, and you can rent sun loungers (or freely enjoy them as a guest at nearby beach clubs). Even during the off-season months of October and November, the seawater remains pleasantly warm for a swim. The entrance to the sea can be rocky, so put on your sea shoes before wading into the water.
