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.

In November, at the beach, sea shells millions of people have gathered them both had seen but here to monitor the vital cycle of the caretta caretta are planned to come again we worry

  • Idyllic blue sea and empty at this time of year. Lovely beach cafe fab waffles. Umbrellas and beds for only 10 lira or just lie on sand. 
  • It is wise to choose the time interval quieter. as for quality of service Boats and slowing down. A good example of the unique beauty of nature.
