Right in front of the Damlataş Cave lies Damlataş beach, a ‘must visit’ while in Alanya. The magic of the beach lies in its closeness to the cave and in a small cove associated with the legendary Queen Cleopatra.
As the story goes, Cleopatra, the powerful Queen Of Egypt, while sailing with her fleet in the eastern Mediterranean, dropped anchor at the port. She stayed in the cove for a couple of restful days of pleasure, and enjoyed the sea and sands.
Her legendary beauty is believed to be associated with the hot sun and fine golden sands of Alanya. Today the Cleopatra Cove is the most frequented beach in Alanya. The sunset is magnificent and you may enjoy water sports such as pedalos and jet skis in front of the section reserved for swimming.
