Locatıons - Dalyan


If it’s history your after then why not visit Dalyan? There, you will find the ruins of ancient Caunos, the 20,000 seat Amphitheatre, Roman Baths, Acroppolis and the ancient city walls. From many of the Dalyan hotels you can clearly see the amazing rock tombs, carved in the face of the hills across the river, and why not visit the famous mud baths and sulphur springs. Dalyan is also a must for nature lovers. The small fishing town of Dalyan is located within the wildlife sanctuary of the Dalyan Delta, and home to no less that 152 varieties of birds, and three types of turtles, including the protected loggerhead "Caretta Caretta" sea turtle. As the river meets the sea, stretch out on Turtle Beach a stunning 6km stretch of beach, with excellent swimming and a protected loggerhead turte population.

Turtle Beach has excellent fine sand with sparkling clear water which remains uncrowded. By day Dalyan has a selection of small shops and its market day on Saturday. There is also a chemist, post office, supermarket and a bank located in the town. Dalyan by night is very relaxed, there are a few discos and numerous friendly cafes and bars. Most of the roads outside the centre of Dalyan are not made, so it is not a typical beach resort, it’s a place for discoveries. You can also take daily excursions to Caunos, Sulphur Springs, Mud Baths and Koycegiz Lake, and daily trips to Turtle Beach. Further afield are Ephesus and Pammukale.
