"The Best Tap Water in Alanya, Turkey" is the title of a report on water quality in the town of Alanya in northern Cyprus. The report was prepared by a non-profit organization called "Greenfield International". It says that the town, which has become well-known due to the presence of the famous Alanya Lake, has a low level of contaminants in its water.
There are two lakes in Alanya. Lake Ashtamia is the most famous. The name refers to the town of Ashtamia in the city. The lake, which lies right next to the coast, is a popular spot for those who love to relax, swim, and take pictures. The water is safe for swimming as long as you avoid the area around the lake at the lowest part of the town.
Alanya lake itself, though not particularly beautiful, does have a few nice features. The most important is the "molehill". The entire area surrounding the lake is landscaped with grass, and it is surrounded by a wall, which has led to an increase in tourist visits
