Demirtaş is located next to Kargıcak around twenty five kilometres east of Alanya, in fact halfway between Alanya and Gazipaşa Airport. Demirtaş is a new developing area where it is still amazingly relaxed without mass tourism; and Demirtaş is therefore very popular among nature lovers looking for a peaceful and quiet setting. Demirtaş is a wonderful place for holidays and year round living, where even during the hot summer months it is pleasant to stay thanks to the crystal clear Mediterranean Sea and the beautiful sandy beaches.
If you want some action: Alanya - especially in summer - is buzzing both by day and by night. There are hundreds of restaurants in all price ranges with a very extensive – both Turkish and international – menu, bars, clubs, discotheques, ... Alanya is also a very international city: literally tens of thousands (!) of foreigners – more than half of them Europeans – have bought a villa or apartment in Alanya and quite a few of them have settled permanently in Alanya.
Demirtaş is located around twenty five kilometres east of Alanya and 165 kilometres from Antalya. The climate in Demirtaş is the same as in Alanya: more than 300 days of sunshine per year, mild winters and hot summers.
Along the entire coastline of Demirtaş, sandy beaches slope gently into the water. The natural beaches are a nesting place for Caretta Caretta, the famous sea turtles who come here to lay their eggs in the warm sand.
Apart from the tranquillity, the beautiful beaches and the fantastic climate, there is - of course - plenty to do and see in the area around Demirtaş. For example, the Sapadere Canyon is a must - especially on a hot summer day - where you can hike through the canyon and refresh yourself in the ice-cold mountain river. Just the ride alone towards Sapadere Canyon makes the trip more than worthwhile thanks to the beautiful mountain scenery. The ancient Roman city of Siedr is also well worth a visit, and of course there's Alanya city, which is less than half an hour drive.
Demirtaş is synonymous with clean air, fresh natural dairy products, fruit and vegetables all year round, and of course more than 300 days of sunshine a year. The local population of just 3000 is mainly engaged in agriculture. Demirtaş is a wonderfully quiet village and therefore exerts a special attraction for those who enjoy a calm and natural life.
Are there any cons? Since Demirtaş is so quiet, it goes without saying that there are not many shops, restaurants or bistros. The nightlife is also at a low ebb. If you are someone who likes to do a lot of shopping and partying, then Alanya centre, Oba or Mahmutlar is a much better place for you to go.
