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.

  • Dalyandan boat came through with reeds (Akköprü is located at boat tours), break through the mud and mud bath in a famous place, a wonderful wavy Beach, clean sea, long beautiful beach with a lot of fun due to the lack of single reeds resulting mosquitoes at night.

  • One of the world's longest Beach İztuzu. I think it would be the most important legacy of sustaining Doğallığının ... A long distance from the sea continues to shallow way and there's a wonderful sand ...
