British holidaymakers have been visiting the resorts of Marmaris and Alanya for many years. As well as the excellent weather, these places are also on par with some of the best nightlife scenes in Europe. There’s something to suit every type of traveller, whether you’re into clubbing or dining out.
The main focus of the night scene in Alanya is partying, which usually goes on long into the early hours of the morning. Depending on your mood, there’s plenty to choose from with something to suit everyone. The size of the resort means you’ll be able to enjoy Turkish music, pop, disco, salsa, dance and rock.
Most of the nightlife is focused on the harbour with some of the more popular clubs overlooking the sea. Indeed, the so-called Harbour Mile is a great location to start, with many bars, clubs and restaurants. There’s always some live music too, ranging from traditional Turkish to local bands.
The harbour is probably the most expensive place to eat, costing almost double the price of restaurants a few hundred metres away. But the beautiful setting coupled with fresh sea air and food is something you can’t put a price on.
Even Sunday and Monday are party days during the holiday season. The James Dean Nightclub is one place you’ll keep hearing about when in Alanya. With many different offerings, including ten bars, four dance-floors, and music suiting most tastes, this is what the UK would call a super-club.
Marmaris is another excellent resort with around half a million people flocking there during the peak season. It is known for its gorgeous coastline, exquisite landscapes, remote bays, convivial beaches, and ancient cities. There’s plenty to choose from in terms of nightlife too, with many bars and clubs that cater for a wide variety of musical tastes. Many people compare the quality of the clubs in Marmaris to those in Ibiza, and if you’re into wild nights on the tiles, the appropriately named Bar Street is the place to be.
