Iztuzu Beach, Dalyan

(4.6/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Iztuzu Beach is a narrow but long stretch of sand that acts as a barrier between the Dalyan River and the Mediterranean Sea. With 4.5 km (2.79 mi) of sand, it rarely feels crowded. Often referred to as "Turtle Beach," it is a main breeding ground for these creatures, which you're sure to catch sight of. The federal government has made efforts to protect the species, leaving the area untouched and restricting public access for periods of time. While this may be frustrating for some, it is the reason the beach has retained its original beauty. That said, check ahead to make sure it's open to the public during your stay. Iztuzu Beach is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Dalyan Edition.

  • During a trip to the Dal'janu we got to iztuzu beach. The beach is really great. Sand, waves and striking beauty. Most choices-almost a wild place. Only drifted from Dalyan by boat. The beach is considered as a place where turtles lay eggs (these sites are identified), so this is a reserved place.
