Dalyan is a popular resort located on the 80 kilometers southeast of Marmaris. Dalyan can be considered as a wonder of nature where the sea and the lake come together. The region is famous with the golden beach of Iztuzu, the sea turtles (Caretta Caretta), healthy mud bath and the ancient city of Kaunos. A must see place for the holiday makers.
Dalyan has variety of beautiful lakes. The labyrinthine canals and natural beaches fascinate the visitors. A road shaded with aromatic frankincense trees leads to the village of Dalyan on the inland waterway. The maze of channels are easily explored by small boats.
The Dalyan Delta, with a long and golden sandy Iztuzu Beach at its mouth, is a nature conservation area and a refuge for the sea turtles (Caretta Caretta) and the blue crabs. Besides the Caretta Carettas, the Nile Turtles (Trionyx Tringulus) also live in the region by the lake.
Dalyan's very famous mud bath is another great attraction for the visitors. Dalyan's hot springs and mud bath is very healthy for the patients having the diseases such as rheumatism, sciatica and calcinosis.
High on the cliff face, at a bend in the river, above the fascinating ancient harbour city of Kaunos and the magnificent tombs are carved into the rock. Kaunos is located nearby the Candir Village, on the west side of the Dalyan Creek. Dalyan is a great tourist area with its history, turtle beach and thermal mud.
