The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Dalaman is an area of breathtaking natural beauty located between the sea and mountains, with fragrant orange groves, lovely unspoilt beaches and fascinating ancient sites. The ideal base to explore from or just relax in the rural setting.
Dalaman is abound with nature, with the over development and exploitation of the area stopped by the protection afforded to the rare loggerhead turtles that frequent the river and beach. This should ensure that Dalaman continues to develop in harmony with its surrounding environment and retain its natural beauty.
BEACHES, RELAXATION, ADVENTURE, HISTORY, RESTAURANTS:
There are many beautiful beaches within a 30min drive of Dalaman, with the nearest being 10-15min drive from Villa Serenity.
DALAMAN BEACHES: Dalaman has two beaches, one sand the other shingle. The beauty of these two beaches is that they are pretty much unknown to many visitors to the area and are therefore very quiet. The water is clear and beautiful for swimming, although not ideally suited to children as it gets deep very quickly. If you are looking for a beach with very few people on it...Dalaman beaches are for you. Keep an eye open for seals, which can sometimes be seen here.
SARIGERME BEACH : with 4 miles of golden sand, shallow sea and the island of Babada not too far in the distance, is a great day out for all the family. A short walk along the wooded footpath with its turkeys, chickens and peacocks running free, brings you out onto the exceptionally clean beach. Facilities include food and drink outlets, water sports, showers, toilets, beach chairs, umbrellas and dressing cabins are all available.
SARSALA BEACH : is a lovely family beach set in a small bay with a restaurant, changing rooms, shower and W.C. The beach is 6 miles from Dalaman. There are daily "12 island" boat trips available from the small pier price is 20 lira (2010 prices) per person and includes a BBQ lunch.
IZTUZU BEACH : Visit one of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean coastline. This sand bar that separates the sea from the mouth of the Dalyan Creek is an excellent swimming beach. Situated 30 minutes from Dalaman, Iztuzu Beach has also been preserved, as it is one of the last nesting grounds for the endangered Loggerhead Turtles.
WHITE-WATER RAFTING : in Dalaman is one of the most exciting holiday experiences and is perfect for active thrill seekers. The Dalaman River is rated as one of the top rafting destinations in the world. Professionals will guide you every step of the way for an unforgettable adventure on the Dalaman waters.
Theme Maris Spa: you can buy a day pass for only £8.00.Enjoy some great facilities including massage, fitness centre, beauty centre (skin care centre, aromatic bathtub, solarium, peeling, hamam, sauna, pressotherapy, starvac, thermo failure), 3 different outdoor pools with thermal natural water, indoor pool, jacuzzi and mud bath. You can see and feed the endangered Loggerhead Turtles. Located immediately behind Dalaman Beach.
Dalyan Spa; is the best in the area. For £23.00 you can relax the whole day away. Included in this price is the sauna, steam room, fitness center, indoor & outdoor swimming pool, Turkish hamam (bath) where you will be treated to a full body mud pack, soap massage & wash. After all this a 20 min choice of massage to finish off. Where could you get a whole day at the spa for just £23!?
Gocek: Often referred to as the St.Tropez of Turkey, with its exclusive yachting marina and unspoilt beaches, Gocek has emerged as one of the countries most affluent areas to live in Turkey. Take the 12 Island Boat Excursion great day out for all the family. The market takes place on a Sunday, ideal place to buy leather goods, local crafts, fruit & veg.
Dalyan: Only 25 minutes drive to the west from the Villa, you will find Dalyan, a small but exquisite fishing town, which lies next to a meandering river, teaming with wild life. After spending your time browsing the typically diverse Turkish market stalls, why not relax and take a look at the Lycian tombs, carved into the rock face, from the comfort of one of the many romantically set restaurants lining the Dalyan riverside. Offering many different boat trips along the river.
KAUNOS: visit the ancient ruins of Kaunos, situated approx. 10km from Dalyan by car, or a 5min row boat ride from Dalyan riverside. Amongst the ruins of the city, you will find an old theatre, a large rectangular building that was probably a temple, others of uncertain description, a Byzantine church, and very curious rock-hewn tombs.
TURKISH HAMMAM: Make sure you experience a traditional Turkish bath (hammam) before you leave. There are several locally and each has either mixed sexes, or ladies only at special times. I bet you thought you were clean until you see what comes off after a good exfoliation.
SULTANIYE HOT SPRINGS & MUD BATHS : Situated just before Dalyan Creek joins the lake, you can give yourself a body pack of mud and then wash it all off again in a sulphur pool with temperatures as hot as in the Sultaniye Baths. Really good for the skin.
SAKLIKENT GORGE : the ideal place to visit if you are feeling especially hot. The gorge is 18km long and so steep and narrow that the sun does not penetrate, so the water is icy cold. The gorge is approached along a wooden boardwalk above the river and opens out to a series of wooden platforms suspended above the water, where you can buy and eat trout at one of the specialist restaurants.
FETHIYE: Great for shopping. Lovely marina with many restaurants, stop for a coffee and watch the world go by. For the ladies; a very large Tuesday market...don't forget to haggle. Guys, find a comfortable place to sit, those girls are going to be a while!
DALAMAN MARKET: A great place to mix with the locals and get a real flavour of the Turkish way of life. Every Thursday, open from early morning until dusk. The display of fruit & veg is a kaleidoscope of colour and very often the traders will invite you to taste some of their produce. Apart from the produce stalls, the market also offers many bargains on clothing, shoes, fabrics, linen and towels. Make sure you enjoy a freshly cooked pancake from one of the vendors....I guarantee that you will go back for another!
Enjoy your evenings at some wonderful restaurants offering quality meals made from fresh organic products grown locally in Dalaman. Here are a few recommended by our guests:
AKKAYA GARDEN RESTAURANT - one of the best restaurants in the Mediterranean Region it gets its name from the valley where it is located. There are plenty of places to dine in the garden with secluded seating areas or in a stork's nest. The nests are positioned in the trees and can sit 4-8 people. The restaurant is located deep in the valley amongst the pine trees. It is set amongst waterfalls, ponds, wildlife and beautiful trees and flowers. The food is second to none with an excellent selection of both Turkish and European cuisine.
BOTANIK RESTAURANT- Situated just a few miles from Dalaman this is a great restaurant at any time of the year. In winter it has a homely feel with a large open fire, for dining inside the restaurant. In the summer all meals are served alfresco in the beautiful gardens. Each table is discreetly placed for privacy. The food is scrumptious and offers everything from fish, meat and vegetarian dishes. Included within the price are homemade bread, cheese and local butter to get you started. Your chosen main meal selection, followed by local fruits of the season.
PALYMIYE RESTAURANT- Serving traditional Turkish meals in a relaxed garden setting (in summer). Great place for the traditional Turkish breakfast, at 10 lira per person this is guaranteed to fill you up until dinner time.
NAR RESTAURANT - attracting locals and tourists alike, Alfresco dining in the town centre. Wonderful Turkish and International cuisine and specialist coffees makes this a popular venue.
BLUE RESTAURANT- Situated just a short car journey from Dalaman, this restaurant sits directly overlooking the marine in Gocek. Although a little pricey that the other restaurants mentioned, it is well worth a visit. If you visit on either a Tuesday or Thursday they offer 2 meals for the price of one. Serving traditional Turkish food, plus the odd surprise!

""A wonderful family holiday in a relaxing environment.""
The owners were extremely helpful throughout our stay but ensured we had all the privacy we needed for a relaxing family holiday. The pool and garden were very well equipped and well cared for. Dalyan has many nice cafes and restaurants that are worth visiting. Add a boat trip on one of the small boats for a nice day out.
Thank-you for your review Joanna, you and your family were a pleasure to have stay at the villa.
