Dalyan, Marmaris

4.2
#3 of 15 in Sightseeing in Marmaris
Ruin Tourist Spot
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.

Where to stay in Marmaris

Look no further than the seaside town of Marmaris for an oceanfront getaway. Along the coast of the Mediterranean Sea sits a strip of busy hotels that appeal to the masses. Here you'll find all-inclusive hotels, guesthouses, and bed and breakfasts right next to shopping, dining, and nightlife venues. In this area, the better accommodation deals tend to restrict outside food and beverages, which can drive up your tab with restaurant bills and à la carte purchases. Farther from the coast in the Armutalan area, you'll find more laid-back accommodations, including moderately priced hotels. The noise restrictions in place ensure a more peaceful stay compared to the city center. Farther south along the coast, the Içmeler area offers the best of both worlds--while still oceanfront, the resorts here are quiet, thanks to their distance from the bustling city. Keep in mind that Içmeler is little over an hour's walk from the city, or a short water taxi ride.
