This is one of the best experiences in Dalyan, the boat trip to/from Turtle Beach! There is a public service, like a water taxi, or you can hire a private boat if you wish. On this particular day a guest, Elaine, and I (Joanne) got the bus to the beach to the other end (known as Iztuzu where the Turtle Rehabiliation Centre is - look up Kaptan June on our website or on youtube) and walked to the boat end - it takes about 45 minutes unless choose to stop half way, take a swim. The boat meanders through the delta, sailing gently through from reeds that looks like a maze from above. The views are awesome, magestic mountains surround you, the Roman Baths of the ancient Roman City, Caunos, becon you - save that for another day when you have time to explore the amphitheatre, agora, church, libarary and much much more. Caunos overlooks Candir lake where the hot spring waters beneath provide the perfect environment for mating turtles which you may see if you are blessed. You might see the flash of torquoise from Kingfishers or spot eagles or buzzards far above you. Eventually you come to Dalyan, with splendid views of the Lycian Rock Tombs coming ever closer, a great vantage point as are many of the riverside restaurants. It's an experience not to be missed.

Unlikeneighbouring 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. Due to the fact that nearby Iztuzu beach is one of the world's few remaining breeding grounds for Loggerhead (Caretta Caretta) turtles, an effort has been made to conserve the area's astounding natural beauty. The 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.

Dalyan Shopping:

The local market on Saturdays provides an excellent way to pick upbargains; 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, but fake, designer goods. There are also several mini supermarkets.
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 or McDonalds.
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. Beach BBQs are also a favourite (they can usually be booked through a tour operator or hotel).
