Where is Dalyan?
Dalyan is located slightly inland on the banks of a river that leads from the beautiful Koycegiz Lake to the sea at Iztuzu beach, the famous nesting place for the endangered Loggerhead Sea Turtles.
Dalyan is situated midway between the two busy tourist areas of Fethiye and Marmaris, surrounded by lush green forests, with some stunning sandy beaches at the end of the river. A protected area due to the turtles and other wildlife, therefore, you are can be assured that there will be no mass development in the area and mass tourism will never take away its natural charm, beauty, or traditional feel.
A peaceful and tranquil area with a small population of around 5,000 out of season which more than doubles in the summer months with many people returning year after year as they fall in love with Dalyan and its friendly atmosphere provided by the locals who depend highly on the summer tourism trade for their main source of income.
Many people choose Dalyan not only because of its natural and peaceful setting but also because of its close proximity to Dalaman airport, therefore just a short transfer time of approximately 30 minutes.
Nightlife in Dalyan is not noisy like some areas, it is mainly centred on the many relaxing bars and fine restaurants with a distinct lack of nightclubs disturbing the chilling atmosphere therefore, Dalyan is ideal for retirees, nature lovers and people who prefer a nice quite relaxed setting for their annual holidays or new lifestyle.
