Dalyan in Mugla Province of Turkey is a quiet town on the banks of the River Dalyan. The region has remained untouched by time and had been home to some of the ancient civilizations. It has an appealing 7 Km long beach line dividing the salty waters of the Mediterranean and the fresh waters of the Köyceğiz Lake. Dalyan’s impressive Iztuzu Beach has earned a reputation for being one of the best beaches in Europe. Popularly known as the ‘Turtle Beach with the Golden Sand’, the beach is one of the last known breeding grounds of the endangered Caretta Caretta (Loggerhead) Turtles. The mud baths near Dalyan and the ancient Lycian temple tombs of Kaunos are the other popular tourist sites nearby. With Marmaris Dalyan Tour you will witness these natural beauties with your own eyes.
