Dalyan, Marmaris
(4.2/5 based on 800+ reviews on the web)
Set among the reed-lined river delta, Dalyan serves as a starting point for the exploration of Lycian rock tombs and the ruins of the port of the ancient trading city Caunos. Carved high above the river in the rocky cliff stand the windswept facades of tombs dating from 400 BCE. A short boat trip across the river takes you to Caunos, a major trade port in the 5th century BCE. Miles of sandy beaches, including the famous Turtle Beach, offer sunbathing and swimming opportunities. Taste some of the local delicacies, such as blue crabs, in one of the many restaurants along the river. Add Dalyan and other attractions to your Marmaris trip itinerary using our Marmaris travel itinerary maker.

  • it is a very long trip into the sea and you'll get back exhausted not comfortable at all but the site seeing worth it at the end 
  • I had to rub my eyes when I first saw the rock cut tombs in the mountain-sides. The area is best known for its conservation of logger-head turtles.

  • Great hotel loverly friendly & very helpful staff. Outstanding views very relaxing week after sailing around the coast & before our massive drive to the Caucasian mountains.
  • Once we are satisfied with the hot water issue, we thank you for making this a holiday.
