Visit Dalyan a beautiful rural unspoilt town. Explore the surrounding areas including the spectacular Iztuzu Beach, the last nesting area for the Caretta caretta.
What to Expect
This tour will bring you on a unique journey through Dalyan and the surrounding areas. Dalyan is a uniquely beautiful small town unspoiled by buildings. The Iztuzu Beach which is located 7kilometers away is accessible by a 45 minute boat trip. The beach is famed as one of the last nesting areas for the Caretta caretta Sea Turtles. Between May and September, the female turtles come to the beach to lay their eggs, care for them and finally take their young to sea.
The tour will take you on a 15-minute boat trip to the sulpher baths which is a unique and rewarding experience. The mud at the baths contains sulpher and other elements which are beneficial to your skin and make you feel refreshed and revitalized. There is a small spa here where you can relax and be pampered.
The next stop is Caunos, the ancient city located near modern Dalyan. Caunos was founded in the 9th Century BC. Once a Mediterranean city port, it now lies several kilometers from the sea, due to silt build up from the Dalyan River. Caunos is famous for its rock-cut tombs. These tombs were graves for the kings and gentry of the city. As the pagans believed in resurrection, they placed food, money, jewellery and other valuables at the entrance of the tombs. Unfortunately, due to grave robbing, these items do not remain today.
