The town of Dalyan is located on the Turquoise coast in southern Turkey. Dalyan is well known, thanks to its proximity to the famous 5km Iztuzu Beach, where the endangered Loggerhead Turtles (Caretta Caretta) lay their eggs. The beach and surrounding areas are protected. As well as Loggerhead Turtles Dalyan is also home to a large population of Soft Shelled Nile Turtles (Trionyx triunguis)
There are plenty of other things to do such as mud baths, thermal springs, an historic Mosque and scenic walks, all very close by. For those that like more activity there is sea kayaking, white water rafting, canyoning, mountain biking, jeep safaris and trekking amongst other things.
Further afield are yet more excursions such as Tlos, an ancient roman site with Lycian rock caves; Saklikent Gorge, a natural marvel to walk through; the beautiful bays of Aşı and Ekincik bay, perfect for snorkelling. Or take a boat tour from Göcek around the 12 islands, or just walk around the marina and check out the yachts.
