Dalyan

Dalyan is just 30 minutes from Dalaman (Muğla) airport, and was destined to become a centre for large-scale tourism development. Plans changed, however, in the mid 80’swhen it was discovered that the beautiful spit of sandy beach is a nesting ground for the rare Caretta caretta or loggerhead turtles which lay their eggs here in the clean fine sand. Dalyan, has remained, therefore, a sleepy haven its unspoilt nature protected by strict regulations which mean that the beach is not j accessible after dark. Dalyan is on a river delta, its narrow waterways, surrounded by reed beds. The small town is set to a backdrop of stunning mountains, the river overlooked by ancient Lycian-style tombs carved high into the rock face. There are some good restaurants on the riverfront and the main street is home to a selection of restaurants and shops and a few bars. The town itself is flat and easy to get around. Boats depart regularly from the riverfront for the short trip to İztuzu beach, approximately 40minutes away. It is a beautiful bar of fine, golden sand gently shelving into the sea. Since there is no development, here, however, there is little in the way of facilities so it is best to come prepared. The beach can also be reached by dolmuş.

Those who stay in Dalyan have a choice of self-catering and hotel I accommodation, from 4 star hotels to simple pensions. Most are built in traditional style to fit in with the natural setting, and many are set on the beautiful riverfront. Many people, however, visit Dalyan on a day-trip by boat from nearby resorts such as Marmaris and Fethiye. The ruins of the ancient city of Caunos are close by and can by reached by boat or on foot. It was originally on the sea, but its harbour gradually silted up and felt into disuse. It has only been partially excavated but the remains are extensive and include a theatre dating from the 2nd century BC, Roman baths, temple of Apollo and agora or marketplace.

Close to Dalyan are the thermal springs and mudbaths of Ihca and Sultaniye, which are reputed to have many health-giving powers and are a fun and relaxing way to unwind. Recently, there have been a number of developments at the nearby bay of Sarigerme, with its beautiful sandy beach, surrounded by pine forests.
