It is a cave located on the sea coast of Alanya. It is located 3 km from Alanya city center and on the west coast of the historical Alanya Castle. It was found in 1948 during the opening of a quarry for the stone to be used in the construction of the port.
There is a 50-meter passage at the entrance of the cave. After the passage with a height of 15 meters, a cylindrical space is reached. From here, it goes down to the bottom of the cave. The cave was named Damlataş because of the water drops that continue to drip from the stalactites. In addition to its fascinating beauty, the cave is also famous for its air that is good for asthma patients. There are patients who sit in the cave for a certain period of time under the control of a doctor and apply a 21-day treatment course. The air of the cave does not change in summer and winter, the temperature is 22 degrees Celsius, the humidity is 95 percent, and the constant pressure is 760 mm. There are 71 percent nitrogen, 20.5 percent oxygen, 2.5 percent carbon dioxide in ten thousand, and some radioactivity and ions in the air of the cave. Consisting of thousands of stalactites, the cave offers a unique visual feast.
This cave, which provides healing in terms of health as well as its visual beauty, is Turkey's first cave opened to tourism. The caves, which have a different atmosphere from the outside world, make you feel in a different atmosphere, even for a while.
