Dalyan Delta Cruise with Iztuzu Beach and the Mud Baths
Tour Participation Requirements
Special Medical Restriction
Begin your tour with a trip on the water’s edge aboard an open boat. Cruise along the river and enjoy magnificent views of the sights around Marmaris Bay as you head to Adaköy.
On your way to Adaköy, you will stop on the northern side of the peninsula. The area has clear waters and huge schools of tropical fish, which have made the locals nickname it “Aquarium Bay”.
Have delicious pasta or rice with grilled chicken and salad onboard before continuing the trip to Iztuzu Beach. If you are into exploring natural wonders, you will be fascinated by a set of phosphorous caves that are close to the beach. If you want to enjoy the sun, the beach is clean and inviting.
Continue down the Dalyan River, stopping at the local mud baths and thermal pool. Wallow in the mineral-dense mud that’s said to aid skin complaints and rheumatism. Cleanse yourself with a refreshing dip in the natural thermal water, and then cruise past the ancient King’s Tombs at Kaunos while learning about their history from your guide.
Finally, make your way to the Kauno ruins to see the Kings’ Tombs. These ancient tombs were the final resting places of the Kings of Kaunos when the city was at its peak in the past.
Turtle Beach: Appropriately Named
Do you know why Iztuzu Beach is also referred to as Turtle Beach? This is because the beach is a breeding ground for the endangered loggerhead turtle. Every year, thousands of the turtles come to the beach to lay eggs. The turtles are under threat by tourism development and the government of Turkey has taken extra measures to protect them.
The view of the beach as you come down the hillside is outstanding. However, before you find a spot to sunbathe or start enjoying the water, visit the Turtle Sanctuary. Beware, they may spit!
