Iztuzu Beach, Dalyan

#1 of 27 in Things to do in Dalyan
Beach Nature / Park
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.

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.
