DALYAN
 

Rich in ruins and spectacular scenery, the western end of Turkey's Mediterranean coast offers a special experience in the ancient site of Caunos. The ruins of this ancient port date from the Hellenic period (5th century BC).

To explore this fascinating area you'll travel by caique (river boat) through the winding, reed-lined Dalyan river delta, past the awe inspiring 4th century BC Lycian rock tombs, carved high in the rocky cliff face, and eventually debark near the ancient Caunos harbor to wander among the ruins of this great port.
 

The Dalyan area is also a protected nature reserve and the home to many rare bird and plant species. The beautiful stretch of golden sand, known as Turtle Beach, is one of the last refuges and nesting ground of the endangered loggerhead turtle, Caretta Caretta.
 

You can also take in the bustling village of Dalyan itself with itís riverside cafes and traditional craft shops, and local mud baths offer a rejuvenating dip before you leaveÖ
