Alanya Beach (Keykubat / East Beach)
With wide expanses of golden sands reaching into the inviting blue Mediterranean, Alanya’s East beach is also the longest in town running from old Alanya harbour to neighbouring Oba Beach. Located just over the headland from Kleopatra beach the beach here receives less attention and acclaim, but is equally good.
Being more sheltered it is often calmer than next door, and the sea floor drops away less steeply, meaning the water is shallower further out. Combined with the fact there are lifeguards on duty at Alanya’s East beach this makes it a perfect family choice. This is backed up by the fact that the beach has been awarded Blue Flag status. Not only does this confirm the water quality is excellent, but that there are great facilities too.
Alanya’s Eastern beach beach is also known as Keykubat Beach after Sultan Alaaddin Keykubat who conquered the city in the 13th century. Another name for the beach is Begonville as many begonville flowers grow along the promenade which runs behind the beach.
This is a wonderful spot to relax and you will find lounge chairs, beach umbrellas, and plenty of space to spend a day soaking up the sun. If you are looking for activities, you will find jet skiing, parasailing, and practically any other water sport you can think of.
Just beyond the beach are plenty of places to stay, along with restaurants and cafes. If you want to take in a bit of Alanya’s ancient culture you should visit the Damlatas Caves and the Alanya Castle, which sits on top of the headland between East and Kleopatra beach.
