    What to Expect
    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, jewellery 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.

    Me and my partner enjoyed the excursion, although it is very busy with lots of people on the boats. Each part of the excursion is timed and so you can’t really fully appreciate each part of the trip. It was too much of a long...More

    When I did it I don't remember seeing a ramp, it was around a 300mm/1ft step on and off the boat and then steps down into the boat. But I'm not sure if they always use the same boats or not. Transport to Dalyan was by coach... More
