Delightful Dalaman holidays 2020

Dalaman is a town and seaside resort on Turkey's beautiful southwestern coast. Dalaman also gives its name to the region, which includes a stunning stretch of coastline that has been aptly nicknamed the 'Turquoise Coast'. 

Few places can compare when it comes to Dalaman's magical combination of beautiful shoreline, fascinating culture and glorious natural landscapes.

As well as the beautiful beaches and lively resorts, Dalaman is home to ancient sites such as the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Kaunos and the fortified city of Tlos. 

There are hot springs, natural mud baths, enchanting islands, and several magnificent protected nature reserves including the Marmaris National Park and the heavenly blue lagoon in Olu Deniz.

Dalaman is great for:

  • All inclusive holidays - The most popular resorts along the Dalaman Coast are Marmaris, Icmeler, Fethiye, Hisaronu, Calis Beach, and Dalyan, all of which offer a range of package holiday deals. 
  • Beach holidays - Each of Dalaman’s resorts has a distinct personality, but all of them share glorious scenery – fabulous beaches and azure seas set against a dramatic mountainous backdrop. 
  • Cheap holidays - Turkey is generally quite a cheap destination in comparison to some other European destinations, particularly if you decide to go all inclusive where you can avoid any spending surprises.

UNESCO sites & adventure activities in Dalaman

UNESCO sites & adventure activities in Dalaman

The Dalaman area is home to two superb UNESCO-designated World Heritage Sites: Kaunos, an ancient city which dates back to the 9th century BC, and Pamukkale, a spectacularly beautiful Greco-Roman settlement. Pamukkale, which is nicknamed ‘Cotton Castle’ in Turkish, is famous for its brilliant white terraces and pools which spill down the side of a steep valley. It is now one of the most visited attractions in Turkey. Both sites are set in extraordinarily beautiful natural settings, and shouldn’t be missed. These are just two of the highlights of a slew of remarkable ancient sites that are found across this region, including magnificent rock tombs and Byzantine ruins. Many of the resorts and towns, including Fethiye, host traditional markets where you can admire local crafts and pick up souvenirs.

The fortified city of Tlos, and the ruins of Hellenic cities such as Physkos and Amos (both set in the Marmaris National Park) all attest to the importance of this region in ancient times. 

There is action and adventure at every turn in the Dalaman region. One of the most unforgettable things to do is paraglide from the top of Babadag mountain all the day down to the beach: the views over Olu Deniz and the Blue Lagoon are spectacular. You could also trek along a section of the Lycian Way, a magnificent long-distance hiking trail that runs for 540 kilometres between Fethiye and Antalya.  The Lycian mountains are also full of fantastic mountain-biking trails, which suit cyclists of all levels. And of course you can try your hand at all kinds of water sports, from kite-surfing to sea kayaking.

Best beaches in Dalaman

Best beaches in Dalaman

The heavenly beaches and coves are the main attraction of the Dalaman Coast, which is one of the most beautiful and unspoilt to be found along the Mediterranean. One of the best ways to explore this coastline is to take a cruise in a gulet, a traditional Turkish sailing boat. The bustling resorts are well-equipped and inviting, with fantastic amenities and a wide array of water sports including snorkelling and diving.

There are scores of breathtaking beaches all along the Dalaman Coast, including those in all the main resorts of Marmaris, Olu Deniz, Icmeler, Fethiye, Hisaronu, Calis Beach, and Sarigerme.

Many of them have been awarded Blue Flag status – Icmeler, for example, has no less than three Blue Flag beaches. But the most attractive of them all – perhaps the most beautiful in all Turkey – are the stunning beaches of the Blue Lagoon in Olu Deniz. And, the wonderful thermal springs and mud-baths, which have drawn visitors for two millennia, at Dalyan.

All of the resort beaches boast plenty of amenities and great facilities for water sports. Other beaches that are worth a visit include Iztuzu Beach (also known as Turtle Beach), which is 13 kilometres from Dalyan. These vast, wide strands are beautiful and rarely crowded, and, best of all, are home to endangered loggerhead turtles (carretta carretta). Sarigerme beach, located 5 kilometres southwest of Dalaman, is particularly charming and well-kept, and is comparatively uncrowded.

For your typical tourist friendly beach holiday, the must visit resorts include Marmaris, Iclemer, Fethiye and Sarigerme.
