Dalyan: Full–Day Mud Bath & Turtle Beach Tour from Fethiye

1. Dalyan: Full–Day Mud Bath & Turtle Beach Tour from Fethiye

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 Fethiye, admire the remarkable rock cut tombs of the Kings of Kaunos along the coast. Founded around the 9th century B.C. on the border of the Kingdom of Lycia, Kaunos became an important Carian city around 400 B.C. 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 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 Fethiye.

What people are saying about Dalaman

Despite rebooking ok

Our booking was rebooked to another operator due to the small number of participants, which meant that we didn't pick up at the hotel (or "delivery") but 2km away and instead of a German tour guide, the (small) entry to the turtle beach was extra charged. Program otherwise as described, lunch stops in a mass meal reminiscent of a warehouse. Mud bath and boat trip fun / entertaining, turtle beach (even without turtles) very nice.

A good value day out

We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day from the mud bath in the morning to Turtle beach in the afternoon. Our guide was entertaining and switched from Turkish to English with ease. I thought the refreshment stops on the way there and back unnecessary. Lunch was edible too.
