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. A sheltered nesting ground for rare loggerhead turtles, the Dalyan coastline retains much of its sleepy character because strict local regulations protect against overdevelopment. Most visitors come to experience the beaches and admire the city's famous rock tombs, which were cut into the region's rugged cliffs over two millennia ago. After you have your fill of basking on the sand in Dalyan, take a guided boat trip to the ancient trading city of Kaunos--its ruins contain a well-preserved amphitheater and acropolis.

Where to stay in Dalyan

The village of Dalyan is abundant in its family-run hostels and guesthouses. This quiet, riverside town offers older, quaint places to stay right along the river. Here, water taxis will pick you up right at your front door and whisk you off to nearby tourist attractions. You'll find newer hotels and guesthouses more inland, but still a short walk to the pier. If you're not willing to forgo luxury, look to the more upscale, coastal resorts just south of the village, which come with a ten-minute commute.
