Dalyan Holidays

An Unspoilt Village In Stunning Surroundings…

Tucked away on the south west coast of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, holidays to Dalyan can provide everything you need for a totally relaxing break by the sea, an adrenalin filled adventure, or perhaps the perfect combination of both. Located in the Dalaman region of Turkey, Dalyan holidays take you to an unspoilt village which can boast not only the sea, but lakes, rivers and mountains as its very close neighbours. The village itself is located right on the river banks and despite the region being exceptionally hot and dry, it remains green and fertile due to a number of underwater springs which nourish the vegetation and supports the local wildlife.

If lazing on the beach, soaking up the sun and enjoying the natural surroundings is your idea of the perfect holiday then you’ve come to the right place. Iztuzu Beach is just 5km from Dalyan and accessible by road or water taxi. Also known as ‘Turtle Beach’ this area is famous for being a nesting ground for the Caretta Caretta turtle and is perfect for chilling out and enjoying the peace and quiet. Turtles nest here between May and September so the beach is closed between 8 pm and 8 am to help protect the species.

Get Up Close And Personal With The Local Wildlife…

Family holidays to Dalyan provide the perfect chance for everyone to spend some quality time together with a wide choice of action packed days out. Boat trips can be taken along the coastline or why not try your hand at deep sea fishing whilst you are out there. Scuba divining opens up a whole new underwater world, white water rafting is perfect for the adrenalin seekers in the family, whilst hiking or biking through succulent mountain trails or a jeep safari will get you up close and personal with the local wildlife. See protected wetlands and a huge selection of bird and animal life along the Dalyan River or by Lake Koycegiz. Enjoy a boat trip to the fascinating city of Kaunos with its ancient ruins and stunning amphitheatre, passing the breathtaking Lycian tombs carved into the cliff side along the way. Nightlife on holidays in Dalyan is as laid back and relaxed as the village with a huge selection of cafes, bars and restaurants. Enjoy live Turkish music or a romantic meal at the waters edge with amazing views of the tombs. Menus offer succulent fish dishes, Turkish specialities such as spiced lamb, and international flavours.

The weekly market sells locally made crafts and Turkish souvenirs, or choose from the selection of small shops in the village. No holiday to Dalyan is surely complete without a trip to the mud baths; enjoy a dip in the pools and thermal hot springs which are both cleansing and therapeutic, whilst creating some memorable photo opportunities. Accommodation on Dalyan holidays is varied and many people choose the hotel half board or bed and breakfast options however there are some delightful villa properties in this area, some modern, others wonderfully traditional and these offer great value for money when looking to book cheap holiday deals in Dalyan.
