Damlatas Caves Tours

The Damlatas Caves are a series of dripping caves in the coastal town of Alanya, Turkey. They were discovered accidentally in 1948 during mining activities at a quarry that was being used to build the harbor. The caves are located on the western side of the peninsula and can be accessed by a passageway that is 164 feet long followed by a cylindrical chamber. Here visitors will see stalactites and stalagmites that were formed over a period of 15,000 years. 

The air inside the cave is said to be beneficial for people with asthma. It has 10 to 12 times as much carbon dioxide as normal air and 95% humidity. Because of this, a large number of tourists come to Alanya each year with the specific purpose of curing their asthma. They stay for three weeks and spend four hours each morning inside the caves, at a greatly reduced rate. During this time, the caves are only open to asthma patients. Visitors without asthma will still enjoy the beauty of this natural formation from late morning through the afternoon.

Practical Info

The entrance to the Damlatas Caves is located on Kleopatra Beach, which is parallel to Atatürk Blvd. Admission is 4.50TL. Opening hours are daily 10am to 6pm.
