BEACHES, RELAXATION, ADVENTURE AND HISTORY
INLICE BEACH : just a 10 minute drive and you can relax on the half a mile stretch of sand and cool off in the sea. It is very safe to swim here, but the sea can become wavy if the wind picks up. Inlice offers a refreshing coolness and in the evenings there is the scent of thyme and pine.
GOCEK BEACH : 20 minutes by water taxi. Enjoy a swim in crystal blue waters or rest under the pine trees and enjoy the peace and quiet. There is a simple restaurant and restroom facility available on the island.
SARIGERME BEACH : with miles of golden sand, shallow sea and the island of Babada not too far in the distance, is a great day out for all the family. A short walk along the wooded footpath with its turkeys, chickens and peacocks running free, brings you out onto the exceptionally clean beach. Facilities include food and drink outlets, water sports, showers, toilets, beach chairs, umbrellas and dressing cabins are all available.
IZTUZU BEACH : one of the most beautiful beaches on the Mediterranean coastline. This sand bar that separates the sea from the mouth of the Dalyan Creek is an excellent swimming beach. Iztuzu Beach has also been preserved, as it is one of the last nesting grounds for the endangered Loggerhead Turtles.
WHITE-WATER RAFTING : in Dalaman is one of the most exciting holiday experiences and is perfect for active thrill seekers. The Dalaman River is rated as one of the top rafting destinations in the world. Professionals will guide you every step of the way for an unforgettable adventure on the Dalaman waters.
DALYAN : a small but exquisite fishing town, which lies next to a meandering river, teaming with wild life. After spending your time browsing the typically diverse Turkish market stalls, why not relax and take a look at the Lycian tombs, carved into the rock face, from the comfort of one of the many restaurants lining the Dalyan riverside. It only takes you a few minutes from the centre of town to stroll through to the Old Dalyan of gardens and willow trees, to flavour days gone by.
SULTANIYE HOT SPRINGS & MUD BATHS : a fun day out for everyone, give yourself a body pack of mud and then wash it all off again in a sulphur pool.
KAYA KOY : Once a thriving Greek village, this town of over one thousand houses, two churches, fourteen chapels, and two schools, was completely deserted in 1923 when the 25,000 Greek inhabitants were repatriated to Greece. Since then, the village of Kayakoy, which had been continually inhabited since at least the 13th century, has stood empty, with only the breeze from the mountains and mist from the sea blowing through its empty houses and streets. A wonderful place steeped in history that touches you to the very soul.
KAUNOS : amongst the ruins of the city, you will find an old theatre, a large rectangular building that was probably a temple, others of uncertain description, a Byzantine church, and very curious rock-hewn tombs.
SAKLIKENT GORGE : the ideal place to visit if you are feeling especially hot. The gorge is 18km long and so steep and narrow that the sun does not penetrate, so the water is icy cold. The gorge is approached along a wooden boardwalk above the river and opens out to a series of wooden platforms suspended above the water, where you can buy and eat trout at one of the specialist restaurants.
PATARA BEACH with miles of golden sand features regularly in brochures as one of the Mediterraneans most beautiful beaches and was recently voted the 2nd best beach in Europe by The Telegraph.
