Mahmutlar is a Turkish town, 10 km east of Alanya, along the Eastern Beach. Number of citizens: 35.000 in the Winter, 120.000 in the Summer. A sleepy town until the start of building holiday houses for Europeans. Still pretty laid-back, but a lot more lively - also in the Winter-time. Many good restaurants, shops, banks, post-office and other facilities. In front of the entire town, the Eastern Beach is waiting for sun-licking tourists. The beach road is busy today, but construction of a new highway has been started. This road will be placed far behind the city, closer to the Taurus Mountain. And the beach road will be changed to a beautiful boulevard.
