Cleopatra Beach (Kleopatra Plaji)

Atatürk Blvd, Alanya, Antalya Province, 07400

The basics

Whether you call it Cleopatra Beach, Kleopatra Beach, or Cleopatra’s Beach, the sheltered—but easily swimmable—waters of Kleopatra Plajı draw travelers from around the world. Facilities run from loungers to volleyball courts and a children’s playground, with Jet Ski, waterskiing, parasailing, and banana boats on offer. Cleopatra Beach is a common stop on Alanya city tours, but many travelers pass by on a sunset cruise, a private boat charter, or one of Alanya’s signature “pirate boats”.

Things to know before you go

  • The beach is well-equipped with bathrooms, changing rooms, and showers.
  • Cleopatra Beach shelves quite steeply from the shoreline and may not be the best choice for families with very young children, although kids clubs are an option.
  • Travelers who rely on wheelchairs can access the beachfront promenade. Rent a beach wheelchair to enjoy the sand and sea.

How to get there

Cleopatra Beach sits on the west side of Alanya Castle, about a 1-mile (1.5-kilometer) walk southwest of the main bus station. The Alanya Teleferik cable car from the castle stops a stone’s throw from the east end of the beach, or pick up bus 1, which runs along the coast road past many resorts.

When to get there

Lifeguards protect the beach between April and November, and outside those times most travelers will find air and water temperatures too cold for swimming. The beach can get extremely busy during the European summer vacation season (July and August): June or September are more mellow. Kleopatra Beach faces west, making it a great spot for a sunset cocktail at one of the beach bars.

Alanya’s Pirate Boat Tours

During Roman times, Alanya was a notorious pirate base. Today, the city’s “pirate boats” commemorate that legacy. Styled as traditional pirate galleons, complete with masts, but powered by engines, not sails, they’re a popular way to see sights including Cleopatra Beach, Alanya Castle, and the Red Tower. Many offer foam parties, a buffet lunch, and onboard DJs.
