Iztuzu Beach
If you are staying in Dalyan a trip to Turtle Beach which is also known as Turtle Beach because it is the main breeding ground of the loggerhead sea turtles, is a must and we would suggest going by boat to really appreciate the experience.  Remember to take your camera as the scenery is breath taking.
Not only will your family enjoy the endless trips and activities available when staying in Dalyan, you also have a cultural and historic landmark on the doorstep - the ancient city of Kaunos which bordered the kingdoms of Lycia and Caria, situated on the other side of Dalyan's river.  It is believed to be the second most important archaeological site in the country.
