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 (officially known as Iztuzu Beach). Departing from Marmaris, admire the remarkable rock cut tombs of the Kings of Kaunos along the coast. Founded around the 9th-century BC on the border of the Kingdom of Lycia, Kaunos became an important Carian city around 400 BC and its culture reflected aspects of both kingdoms. The tombs were designated for the kings and other powerful people of the city, 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 (Caretta Caretta) that lay their eggs in the sand, as well as blue crab, the beach is now protected to help conserve the turtles, making it out of bounds to the public from May through September. Jump into a mud bath for an indulgent and therapeutic wallow before your return transfer to Marmaris.

Great experience, competent and funny team. Very reliable and punctual! The tour was impressive. You should make sure that the guests are on time or else continue to travel alone by taxi. Travel time of 8 hours is not correct, since it was 10 hours. There is a slight difference if you are back at the hotel around 4:00 p.m. or 6:00 p.m.

Was a nice trip from 08.00 - 18.15. The high season hadn't started yet, so we regularly saw turtles lying on the side of the river. The guide was nice, she was very enthusiastic. Not all seats on the bus were properly secured. The bus driver had a good pace.
