Full description
Enjoy a relaxing full-day tour of Dalyan on Turkey’s Lycian coast, sailing by boat across the turquoise sea to Turtle Beach. The boat leaves from Bodrum, and you’ll be able to admire the remarkable rock-cut tombs of the Kings of Kaunos along the way.

Founded around the 9th century BC on the border of the Kingdom of Lycia, Kaunos became an important Carian city by 400 BC and its culture reflected aspects of both kingdoms. The tombs were designated for the kings and other powerful persons, and filled with food, money, jewelry, and other valuable items.

Marvel at the Dalyan Canal as it weaves its way from Köyceğiz Lake to the beach, a peninsula jutting out from the mainland. Famous for the endangered loggerhead turtles that lay their eggs in the sand, as well as blue crabs, the beach is now protected to help conserve the turtles. It is out of bounds to the public from May through September.

Experience a mud bath for an indulgent and therapeutic treat before your return transfer to Bodrum.
