Dimcay Alanya: Piknik on the Dim River: We Love Alanya

DIMCAY Alanya (dim çayı) is a deep gorge just east of Alanya city centre carved out from the Dim River as its drops from the mountains on its journey to the Mediterranean Ocean. The area has been developed as natural piknik sites for bathing, eating and relaxing.

Here is a QUICK 2 MINUTE DIMCAY DRIVE THROUGH guide to show you what this place is like.

The spectacular scenery and natural beauty of this DIMCAY gorge has been enhanced by the many piknik sites and restaurants that have been developed all the way to the top of the valley where the Dim Barage is located.

These floating restaurants provide shady chill out areas and icy cold mountain water which is so badly needed in the searing heat of the Summer in Turkey.

The restaurants attract tourist and locals making it one of the few touristic attractions which never ceases to lose its appeal, no matter how many years you have lived in, or visited, Alanya.

DIMCAY ALANYA – Finding the source of the River

The Dim River starts its journey at Alacami, about 35 miles from Alanya on the southern side of the of the Taurus contains. The actual source of the river is at a small village called Dimalacami where a beautiful water falls and cut through the valley forming a deep and beautiful canyon.

Construction of a large damn at the top of the valley was started in 2004

The valley behind it began flooding in 2008/2009 as the water filled the reservoir.

The damn has played a vital role in ensuring a consistent supply of electricity and water for the rapidly growing city of Alanya and its many districts.

It is very picturesque and you should always drive here and look at the damn before dropping back to the restaurants in the valley. Some of the piknik sites at the top of the gorge have the huge dam as their backdrop.

Some restaurants offer swimming and diving in the river with water slides and fountains. Some have their own swimming pools and aqua parks with water warmer than the river because not matter how hot it is the water from the river is always freezing.

During the summer there are lots of visitors to the restaurants, including Turkish people who like to go the Dim Valley for a relaxing day away from hot, loud and busy Alanya.

The map shows how all the piknik sites are dotted up the valley, not all of them are shown on this map and, of course, names can change as ownership changes over the years. Some sites, however, have been there for many years.
