Cleopatra Sand Beach

In the western part of the resort, along a beautiful promenade, stretches one of the most beautiful and comfortable beaches in Alanya, named after the ruler of Ancient Egypt. “Cleopatra” has the status of a municipal beach, which means the entrance is free. Lovers of a good tan can rent sun beds and umbrellas, and water lovers – ride on catamarans, water skis and parachute.

The two-kilometer coastal strip is covered with fine white sand. The sea bottom is also sandy, so parents with children like to have a rest at “Cleopatra”. The number of people who want to visit one of the best beaches in Turkey is so great that the peak tourist season from June to October here comes up to 10 thousand people a day.

The large number of people is compensated by a comfortable beach infrastructure. Near the shore there are walking areas and parks, cafes, snack bars, souvenir stores and resort goods stores. Nearby are popular with children Luna Park and Aquapark. Mini-golf tournaments are held in the shady part of Cleopatra, and the Amphora Dive Center is open at the western end of the beach.

Beach season in Alanya

The Turkish city lies in the hottest part of the country. From June to September, the sun heats the shore so much that tourists take care of their feet and walk from the sunbeds to the water in beach flip-flops. Another feature of the beaches of Alanya is not a calm sea. According to travelers’ reviews, compared to other regions of Turkey, it storms here more often. Waves rise near the shore and throw small and large stones in shallow water. Private beaches are constantly monitored, and municipal recreational areas after storms abound with sharp rocks.

The first bathers come to Alanya at the end of April, when the sea warms up above +21°C. The main influx of tourists, as in other resorts of Turkey, begins in June. In early summer, by July, the Mediterranean Sea is heated to +24 … +25 ° C, and by August the temperature of the sea reaches comfortable +28 … +29 ° C. According to the reviews of tourists, the sea becomes like steamed milk, and in Alanya there are more visitors.

In autumn, the air cools faster than the sea, so the bathing season in Turkey lasts until October. Having gained the warmth of summer, the water cools down gradually. Some swimmers visit the beaches of Alanya until the end of November.
