The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
With its isolated beach coves and spectacular landscapes, as well as its stunning views, small, hidden villages, and its 2000 years of ancient history, the Lycian coast is one of the most varied and beautiful coastal areas in the Mediterranean.
This coastal region is characterised by amazing flora and fauna, charming villages further inland, small fishing villages, as well as beautiful holiday locations with a magical atmosphere. And almost everywhere you go you will encounter historical remains from Lycian times.
Many of such remains can be found close to beach areas, whereas others can be reached via walking routes or by car.
Dalyan: Unlike neighbouring resorts, Dalyan is a largely undeveloped, tranquil village offering a significant number of natural and historical attractions, as well as classic Turkish friendliness and hospitality. Nearby Iztuzu beach is one of the world's few remaining breeding grounds for Loggerhead (Caretta Caretta) turtles - efforts have been made to conserve the area's astounding natural beauty.
Dalyan town is set on the winding Dalyan River that flows between the Mediterranean Sea and Lake Koycegiz, and on the other side of the river are the ruins of the ancient city of Caunos, dating back to the 3rd century. A must is a boat trip to the 2.5-mile (4km) beach (about a 40-minute journey) that transports visitors through tall reeds, to 2,300-year-old Lycian cliff tombs and Caunos, and finally to the large sandbar at the turtle beach. A quicker, but less scenic ride is by dolmus.
Nearby thermal springs at Sultaniye, and the Dalyan mud baths are also not to be missed and make for an experience out of the ordinary. The surrounding wetlands are a haven for a variety of wildlife and birds, and the town is offset by a backdrop of pine-covered mountains and lush fields, making Dalyan a perfect destination for nature-lovers. For those looking to party until dawn, the busier resorts such as Marmaris would be better suited, but for the more discerning traveller, there are plenty of activities and excursions to enjoy, local delicacies to savour and spectacular scenery to delight in.
Shopping: The local market on Saturdays provides an excellent way to pick up bargains; as with anywhere in Turkey, haggling is key and there are unbelievable deals to be had. There are several small shops, including local arts and crafts, and carpet dealers, and there is also the usual range of very cheap household goods, soft furnishings, clothes and other textile products. There are also several mini supermarkets and convenience shops.
Restaurants: There are a number of restaurants catering for a range of tastes, including several that offer tasty traditional Turkish dishes. Unlike many resorts, this is not the place to look for British style food - no McDonalds or Pizza Hut here thank goodness!!
Nightlife: Dalyan is not the place to come for a buzzing nightlife, but there are several bars and a few clubs , and several establishments have regular Turkish nights offering up a more traditional experience of belly dancing, traditional music and special food.
Activities: There is plenty to see and do in Dalyan. Boat trips are immensely popular, as are jeep safaris, mountain biking, sea kayaking, paragliding, fishing, snorkelling and more. A definite must is a microlight flight over the spectacular Dalyan Delta, providing incredible views and possible turtle spotting. For the less active, the hot springs and mud baths provide relaxation, as does a visit to a Turkish hamman for a massage and Turkish bath.
Relaxing on the spectacular Iztuzu beach, and dips in the warm, shallow water is also a must. History buffs will enjoy the fascinating Lycian cliff tombs that house the kings of Caunos, and at Caunos itself, the remains of this once large port can be seen, including a theatre, temples, churches and baths. For those looking for more action, there are regular dolmus trips to neighbouring resorts and towns such as Marmaris.

"An amazing villa with everything we needed, I hope to stay there again soon!"
Our party - myself and two teenage boys- are recently back from a fabulous holiday at Villa Kardelen. After traveling from California it was great to arrive into such luxury and comfort. The en suites are large and comfortable, we had lots of space to spread out. The common areas are just the right size and gave us room to ourselves. Outdoor areas were fantastic, outdoor BBQ and dining, pool, covered lounge... All with great views of the mountains. The villa was in a ideal location with just a short walk to town, no car was needed, some shops just a block away, yet far enough that it was quiet and peaceful. The owner's recommendations for sights and restaurants were all perfect. I'd highly recommend the villa to anyone and hope we will be back again soon!
