DalyanThere are plenty of reasons for visiting laid-back little Dalyan. The major attraction is undoubtedly a visit to the ruined city of Kaunos with its spectacular Kings' tombs across the river. Also, the İztuzu beach, a hatching ground for loggerhead turtles (Caretta Caretta), at the river mouth, and the Köyceğiz lake with its hot springs are famous tourist attractions.

Life in Dalyan revolves around the river, the Dalyan Çayı. Many hotels and pensions line the river's east bank, and the boats that sail up and down the river are the preferred way to visit the main attractions. We stayed two nights in the Özalp Otel, which is not far from the town's center, but a bit away from the river.
