Dalyan

Although it once seemed destined to become a stereotypical coastal resort, Dalyan remains unspoiled by commercial tourism because of its location within an environmentally protected area.
Get out of town with these interesting Dalyan side-trips: Marmaris (Marmaris Atlantis Waterpark, Marmaris Beach, &more) and Boat Tours & Water Sports (in Gocek). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Iztuzu Beach 2, delve into the distant past at Caunos Tombs of the Kings, and explore the activities along Dalyan Nehri.

For maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Dalyan trip planner.

Ankara to Dalyan is an approximately 4- hour combination of bus, flight, and taxi. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Ankara in August, expect nights in Dalyan to be slightly colder, around 24°C, while days are somewhat warmer, around 38°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 3rd (Mon) to allow time to drive to Oludeniz.
