Upstairs three further bedrooms all have their own ensuite shower rooms. One of the bedrooms has a Juliet balcony, the other bedrooms have their own full balconies, the master bedroom overlooking the pool and garden.
Dalyan lies in a conservation area and as such no high rise building is allowed. Dalyan is a truly incredible place and is widely recognised as one of the "last corners of paradise". It is a natural, easy going, real life working town rather than a purpose built tourist resort. Life is even slower here in winter, but life does continue as people have lived and worked here for generations.
Surrounded by pine-clad mountains, cotton fields, fruit orchards and reed beds, this is also a national conservation area with unspoilt natural beauty. Dalyan has justifiably been declared a 'specially protected area' by the Turkish government, so as to preserve the nature in the delta.
The town is set on the Dalyan canal that connects Lake Koycegiz to the sea and runs through the internationally renowned delta surrounded by reed beds that create hidden lagoons and waterways.
The reed beds provide homes for approximately 200 species of birds many of whom are resident or visit the delta on their migration flights, so making this area a naturalist’s delight. Naturalists travel from all over the world to visit the Dalyan Delta.
Dalyan’s Iztuzu beach is approximately 3 miles or 5 km long. It has been voted the “Best Open Space in Europe” by the Times in London and the “Best Beach in Europe” by leading Dutch travel organisations like Poover. It is a safe, family friendly, gently sloping beach perfect for swimming, walking and relaxing.
Iztuzu beach is an established nesting site of the Loggerhead [Caretta Caretta] marine turtles, which have been returning to this beach since the dawn of time to lay their eggs between May and October. As a result the beach is now protected to preserve it for this endangered species and is closed between 20.00 and 08.00 each night during the nesting season. An international effort including a lead role from local resident June Haimhoff (known locally as Kaptan June) and David Bellamy secured this.
There is a turtle rehabilitation sanctuary at the Dolmus (bus) end of the beach. This is run by Dekamer through the Pamukkale university. They take in injured turtles from the area and care for them there until they are fit enough to be released. The sanctuary is open to the public and well worth the visit to see the wonderful work they do and hear from them about the amazing creatures that marine turtles are.
Apart from the ecological importance of the area, Dalyan itself is one of the most attractive towns of the Turkish coastline. Sitting between the wider known resorts of Marmaris and Fethiye, it could not be further apart from them in its pace of life.
While you are here, just go with the local pace and enjoy being on ‘Dalyan time’ and enjoy all that Dalyan has to offer.
