On the opposite side of the river is the ancient city of Caunos with it’s well preserved amphitheatre and Lycean rock tombs.
Trips can be organised from Dalyan ranging from boat trips up or down the river to the beach or to the mud baths and Lake Koycegiz, quad biking, jeep safari, diving, white water rafting, 12 island sailing day, Turkish baths or local excursions etc. There are many restaurants and shops in Dalyan and they have their local market on a Saturday.
Only 15 minutes away, Gocek nestles at the foot of the pine clad mountains looking over the 12 islands of the bay. Gocek is becoming a famous yachting harbour both in Turkey and in the world. One of the pleasures of a visit here is a stroll around the marina to admire the array of boats of all shapes and sizes moored there. The waterfront is lined with bars and restaurants. Inland life revolves around the pretty market square which is lined with little shops selling antiques and crafts as well as more unusual carpets.
The quickest way to Gocek would be through the tunnel which costs 3 lira each way. The alternative route is the mountain road which is a longer route.
