If you plan to visit Alanya, Antalya and the surrounding area we recommend you to take a lot of T-shirts with a short sleeves, airy clothes, light long trousers and comfortable sports shoes. On the streets we see tourists in shorts and flip-flops, but as for us it is a bit too early for that :)

Remember about sunbathing suits for walking on the beach, headgear, sun glasses and of course a cream with a sunscreen!
