In and around Dalyan
Dalyan is very family orientated with something to do for everyone. Whether you want just to sit by the riverside and sip a drink and watch the sun go down or listen to live bands in one of the bars, there is something for everyone. In the main street there are plenty of restaurants and shops offering different kinds of foods and goods. From the riverside you can see the ancient Rock Tombs carved in the side of the mountain and illuminated at night. Dalyan is famous for the Caretta-Caretta (Turtle) and being a conservation area it is protected. You can also visit the Turtle Sanctuary located close to Iztuzu Beach. Iztuzu is also where the turtles come onto the beach at night to lay their eggs.
There is a public boat at the harbour that will take you to Iztuzu Beach. It is an interesting ride; you will pass by the ancient tombs and proceed to this lovely clean beach with clear waters. There is also a bus (dolmus) that runs all day backwards and forwards to the beach.
Dalyan is an unspoilt part of Turkey and once you arrive you won't want to leave most people return year after year.

The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Dalyan is a lovely small riverside town located on the Turquoise coast in southern Turkey. It has an enticing mix of breathtaking views, fantastic weather, warm friendly hospitality, plentiful restaurants, charming bars and places to shop.
Dalyan is well known thanks to its proximity to the famous 7km Iztuzu Beach where the endangered Loggerhead Turtles (Caretta Caretta) lay their eggs. The beach and surrounding area is a natural conservation area and is protected from development. The beach can be reached by minibus or by a relaxing boat ride on the Dalyan Canal and on through the reed beds. As well as Loggerhead Turtles Dalyan is also home to the largest population of the Soft Shelled Nile Turtles (Trionyx triunguis). The wet land areas are home to many migrating birds and storks nest all over the area.
Steeped in history Dalyan is overlooked by ancient Lycian Rock Tombs which are the last resting places of the Kings of Kaunos, meanwhile the Dalyan Canal weaves its way past the village on its way from Köycegiz Lake to the beach.
Across the canal are the ruins of the city of Kaunos, with a Roman theatre, fortifications, basilica and many other sites to be seen. Dalyan itself has strict building regulations which ensures a traditional feeling in the village. Originally a fishing village, the name Dalyan means "fish trap". Fishing still makes a major contribution to the local economy and the daily catch features prominently on restaurant menus. The village has a warm welcome to visitors and most people who visit once return time and time again.
The Saturday Market is a joy to shop at, from the best quality fake designer wear to fresh vegetables and of course a plentiful collection of local spices and teas; as a working market you will shop alongside tourists and locals alike.
With mud baths, Turkish baths, thermal springs, an historic mosque and scenic walks Dalyan has it all for the perfect relaxing holiday. Early season is a nature lovers delight with many amazing walks providing the opportunity to observe the wildlife with migrating birds and outstanding flora and fauna. Many guests choose April and May for walking holidays with perfect temperatures and weather conditions.
Nearby you can also find Tlos, an ancient roman site with Lycian rock caves; Saklikent Gorge, a natural marvel to walk through; the beautiful bays of Bacardi, Asi and Ekincik, perfect for snorkeling.
Dalyan is also just over an hours drive from Marmaris or Fethiye with the glorious Öludeniz just outside Fethiye. You can take a boat tour from Göcek around the 12 islands, or just walk around the marina and marvel at the yachts.
