Rivers & Beaches

River Dim

The River Dim has its source in the Taurus Mountains and flows into the Mediterranean to the east of Alanya. In summer there are field restaurants along its banks with tables and comfortable cushions placed under beautiful old plane trees. When it gets really hot the tables are set in the river itself and guests sit barefoot in the cool water. In the heat of summer the valley and its lush green forests provide a lovely cool environment to enjoy the traditional dishes of the area. Trout is one of the favourites – they are kept in pools in the gardens of the restaurant – and are prepared to your taste on the spot.

The area also has good mountain-biking and trekking possibilities.
