The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Dalyan is a small town on the south west corner of Turkey's Mediterranean coast. It is surrounded by pine-clad mountains, cotton fields, fruit orchards and miles of untouched coastline.
Dalyan is set on a river delta. Small boats carry holidaymakers daily along the narrow waterways to the sandy 6km Iztuzu beach (Turtle beach). The beach is a protected National Conservation area and is the breeding ground of the endangered Loggerhead Caretta Caretta turtle.
Steeped in history, Dalyan is overlooked by ancient Lycian Rock Tombs and across the river are the ruins of the ancient city of Caunos. The site has been partially excavated and includes a theatre dating back to the 2nd century BC, Roman Bathes, the Temple of Apollo and a marketplace.
Other popular activities are visiting the Mud Baths and Thermal Springs on Lake Koycegiz, shopping at the local Saturday market, scuba diving and hiking.
