The first settlement in the Alanya region goes back to Pre-Christian times. Before the discovery of tourism the locals lived from agriculture, fishery and animal household. These nomade tribes spent the mild winter in Alanya and in the summer time they moved with their herds to the pastures of the Taurus Mountains. With the development of tourism many of these people have become sedentary and take part of the business life in many of the hotels, shops and restaurants.

The present population structure has within the last 20 years made Alanya into a multicultural city. When tourism started to develop the first businessmen came from Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir and other major cities and established the first hotels and shops. Then came the Turks who were living abroad who invested their savings into tourism. They also contributed by helping make Alanya known in Europe.

With the development of infrastructure, healthcare, modern hotels, villas, apartments and shops came the first purchase of apartments by the Europeans. To date on The Turkish Riviera more than 35,000 Europeans purchased property here (mostly Germans - about 15,500). For most of the time they live here permanently as our new local friends embracing the Turkish culture and laid back way of life.

The popularity of Alanya both by locals and Europeans is based on the high quality of the tourist facilities, hotels and beaches. The miles of beaches are open to everyone free of charge. Even the hotels are not like in other resorts with a capacity of 50-100 rooms, comfortable and very homely. They are located along the beaches or lying in the city center and managed in a family and professional style ensuring a relaxed atmosphere. Discover the history, nature and culture of Alanya.
