The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Dalyan in the province of Mugla on the South-Western Mediterranean, is set in the centre of a broad delta whose natural beauty is completely unspoiled. Dalyan was once a small fishing village overlooked by rock tombs. It has now become popular with holiday makers looking to get away from the bustle and noise of the big cities.
From inland mountains several streams converge at the Majestic Koycegiz Lake which was once an open bay to the sea. Today silting has created a fertile plain through which the Dalyan river winds its way - past the haunting remains of an ancient city and through a labyrinth of tall reed beds to emerge at the stunning Iztuzu beach.
The convivial little town of Dalyan sits beside the river, the flow of its bright green waters setting the pace of life for this rural community.
Village ladies still hang corn cobs and peppers up to dry. Visitors share the streets with chickens, tractors, cows and bicycles (the locals favoured method of transport). In addition to tourism the main occupations here are cotton growing and fish farming (Dalyan translates as fishing weir).
The weather in Dalyan is usually very predictable. From May through to October it is highly unlikely to rain and is always hot in the day and warm at night. The sea is at its warmest after August with an average temperature of 25c. The winter is similar to a British summer, it never freezes but can rain quite a lot during December and January.
Dalyan is very environmentally aware and has strict planning policies in place to conserve the natural beauty.
The apartment is situated in the countryside only a 15 minute walk or 3 to 4 minutes on the Dolmus into the centre of Dalyan. The Dolmus runs approximately every 15 minutes.
The Dalyan area has everything to offer you during your holiday. Some of the many daily trips available are:
Canyoning, 12 Islands Cruise, Snorkeling, Horse Riding, Koycegiz Market, Mountainbiking, Rafting, Paragliding, Scuba Diving or Scuba Diving Courses, Turkish Bath, Sea Fishing, Sea Kayaking, Horse Trekking, Water Sports, BBQ.Tours or regular Daily tours to explore the ancient Civilization of Turkey with its fascinating history.
Shopping is excellent with a mixture of modern shops and supermarkets to quaint local shops selling those unique bargains to be found only in this part of Turkey. There is a modern bank and a post office. It is a beautiful area with lots to do for all ages in a safe environment with numerous great value Cafes, Bars and restaurants in the centre and along the riverside. The small town is not over commercialised as some other resorts are. Dalyan respects its enviroment which makes it perfect for families and couples to enjoy themselves in a safe friendly enviroment.
Once a week local farmers come to Dalyan to sell anything from fruit, vegetables, linen, baskets, tools and even chickens. There is a unique atmosphere in which bargaining is all part of the fun.
Iztuzu Beach is one of the most picturesque and most photographed beaches in Turkey. Look in most brochures and there it is. The beach is one of the few places in the world where the Caretta Caretta turtles nest. The beach is a designated conservation area of outstanding natural beauty with over 4km of unspoiled golden sands, a shallow sea incline and crystal clear warm waters. Dalyan is very enviroment aware with strict planning policies in place to conserve its natural beauty. No building is allowed to take place from May to September.
The Mud Baths and hot springs at Koycegiz Lake "Beauty in Mud" are a must to visit. They not only cleanse and tone the skin but it is said to remedy rheumatism and has anti aging properties.
Areas to visit are:
The Rock Tombs of the Kings
The Ancient City of Kaunos
The Hidden City (I haven't found it yet)
Cruise across Lake Koycegiz
Try a Turkish bath
For the more adventurous:
A Jeep Safari
White Water Rafting
Golf - yes GOLF - a new 18 hole championship golf course may open 2015 at Sarigerme (only 30 minutes away from Dalyan) and is the only course for 300 miles. The Hilton Hotels Group plan to open the course all the year round. When it opens If you wish to spend a golfing week off season please contact me for special low rental rates.
If you just wish to chill out and top up your tan then we have a beautiful lit pool and sunbeds. The graduated steps into the pool mean that non-swimmers can take a dip too. Why not let the younger children play in the warm shallow children's pool?
During the warm evenings you can either cook a meal in our well fitted out kitchen or on the large BBQ on the patio. Then sit on the balcony with a glass of local wine watching the children play. Or if you wish to eat out then Dalyan has a variety of restaurants, both in the centre of town and along the riverside serving the finest in Turkish and International cuisine.
The Dalyan area has something for everyone of any age, for the fit, the not so fit and those just wishing to relax and chill and as Turkey is not in the Euro Zone prices are amazingly low so you can enjoy the holiday of a lifetime without breaking the bank.

"We found our paradise..."
We visited Dalyan in Turkey in August and spent 8 days in this exquisite location, where we were surrounded by the mountains and we were only a short 'dolmus' (local bus) ride to the white … More

Zircon apartments are just outside the main town of Dalyan. Our apartment was on 2 levels and had everything we needed. The owners have thought of everything but here's a quick written tour:. … More

We had a lovely week in Dalyan. The apartment is a little away from the centre of Dalyan, but it is easy enough to get to by Dolmus (bus). To walk it would take around 15 minutes - but in the heat and with young children the easier option is definitely the dolmus (2 turkish lira p/p) which runs around every 15 minutes or so from 7am to 10pm.
The apartment itself is nice and sufficient for the duration of our stay. I must say, Peter was very good with us, any problems I sent him a SMS and he responded as soon as he could and also Ishmel the caretaker was excellent. One other thing, we were lucky enough to meet Peter's neighbours, all very nice, friendly and helpful - we had a few incidences and they helped us quite a bit - very much appreciated.
The kitchen and equipment/utensils are sufficient. We cooked our lunch at the apartment quite a bit. We used the supermarket in Dalyan centre (Migros apparently most cost efficient) and also made use of the butchers opposite Migros - cheaper than buying meat in Migros. Getting a taxi back the taxi next to Migros knows where Zircon apartments are, but not many do and we found it difficult to explain where we lived - sok 247 is the road...I think that is sufficient if you get stuck! :)
The market on Saturday was a good experience - we bargained with a smile and got good prices. Although we didn't get any discounts on the fresh food and veg.
(I didn't get a chance to write in the guest folder...so thought I'd add my points here)
The closest beach is Itzuzu beach, which can be reached by taking a dolmus to the centre (last bus stop) and then change to either: 1. another dolmus to Itzuzu beach which costs 8 lira p/p return - if you choose this option you will see the turtle rehabiliation centre - worthwhile trip especially if you have children. 2. walk to the river front a few mins walk from last bus stop to get a river dolmus to Itzuzu beach (a different side of the beach). We enjoyed both journeys.
Restaurant recommendation: La Vie which is on the river front....walk to the top of the strip - walk past Four Seasons restaurant and go further up to the Tequila bar to your right...turn right and La Vie is at end
There is no wifi in the area, although wifi available in most restaurant and bars.

"A fantastic and unforgettable holiday."
Once again we had the most fantastic holiday. The apartment was just as lovely and the pool was great to cool down. The water cooler is an excellent idea for the warmer months and even made drinking water more appealing to my children!
Dalyan itself was once again, clean and the people as friendly as ever. We took several boat trips this time which were excellent value for money and greatly enjoyed by all of us.
The only sad thing is that we had to come home...
Please can we book again for next year?
