Things to do in Dalyan
Set on the banks of the striking Dalyan River, the village of Dalyan is abundant in unspoilt splendour. With charming gardens adorned by willow trees and a daily flotilla of painted boats, there is a distinct air of romance to be found in this Turkish town. Take a stroll down to Iztuzu Beach, a narrow split of land separating the river with the Mediterranean Sea, and home to the famous loggerhead sea turtles. Here, you’ll be treated to its luscious white sands as well as warm shallow waters ideal for swimming – one of the great Dalyan attractions.
Despite its tranquil riverside setting, it is within easy reach of many of the area's top attractions, so you can choose exactly how much or how little you want to do on your holidays to Dalyan. Explore 4th century tombs carved into the rock, visit the ancient ruins of Caunos or head up river to bathe in the rejuvenating hot springs. Why not take the half-hour journey to the spectacular Iztuzu Beach also known as the famous turtle beach. You can journey past mountains, forests and tributaries brimming with wildlife, then spend the day relaxing and swimming at this famous beach, home to rare loggerhead turtles. During the day hit the beachside shops, which offer snacks and drinks, while in the evenings Dalyan boasts many restaurants and bars offering traditional Turkish cuisine. While you won't find any busy nightclubs, many places offer traditional entertainment and live music long into the night. With all this just a four-hour flight away from the UK, it's no wonder cheap holidays to Dalyan are fast becoming the holiday of choice for everyone from families and couples, to friends looking for a beach holiday with a difference.
There is nothing better than a holiday to remedy the stresses and strains of modern life, and there are some great Dalyan attractions to promote harmony and wellbeing. On the quiet banks of the Dalyan River, you’ll find BC Spa, a picturesque spot for spa-junkies looking for some pampering. Here, you’ll discover a pool, gym, sauna, steam room and Turkish bath as well as a range of treatments. Health fanatics can complete the relaxing experience with the juice bar, located in the spa. For a mineral boost, ensure a visit to the famous mud baths on the river. Containing a wealth of vitamins and minerals to make you look and feel rejuvenated, this is a must-visit for holidaymakers.
Dalyan is the real life embodiment of the perfect beach holiday. Iztuzu beach is paradise – seemingly endless beautiful golden sands backdropped by stunning hills and coastal coves, the scenery will just blow you away. Swimming in the sea is an invigorating experience, with deep, clear and crisp blue waters providing a refreshing cool-off from the sizzling sands. As the name suggests, you’ll also encounter the serene loggerhead turtles up close – but not so close as to disturb these gentle creatures. The amazing thing about the beach is that it is actually a narrow strip of land between the sea and the Dalyan river, so you’re surrounded by salt water and fresh water – a true beach dweller’s paradise! You’ll also love exploring the coves and inlets, trying your hand at some snorkelling, and enjoying some tasty Turkish delights in one of the quaint beachside cafes. Dalyan beach holidays will refresh, invigorate and wow you – life truly is a beach here!
