Alanya appears to be an increasingly strong magnet, both to the Turkish population as to foreigners. If you make a boat trip – from Alanya direction East – along Kestel, Mahmutlar and Kargıcak and you compare this image to, let’s say, about fifteen years ago; you won’t believe your own eyes. Ten to fifteen years ago you could clearly see where these towns began and stopped, now you see one elongated ribbon of buildings. In other words: this whole region is becoming one big city along the coast. Because of this still growing attraction – do not forget that it is a dream of a large part of the Turkish population to settle on the Turkish Riviera – you can easily rent out or resell your apartment or villa in Alanya.
