Dalyan

 
 
People who have participated to a ship tour from the strait which connects Köyceğiz lake to Mediterranean are stroll between narrow corridors, which are not known where to enter and where to leave. Peninsula is just like a haven with at the left side, a 80 - 100 m. wide, kilometers long, forest entering sand sea, at the right side, bays within pine forests.
 
From Dalyan, following the road that takes you to the İztuzu coast and the Dalyanağzı beach facilities, if one turns just one kilometre before the beach and heads towards the hills you will sees the Türk Telecom Radar Tower and then Aşı Cove. Most of the road, which winds through pine trees and heads towards the top of the mountain, is paved. At each corner the beauty of the Dalyan delta is spread under your feet. The road heading towards the radar tower is gravel. When you reach the top of the hill an incredible view awaits you. On one side is the delta, channels, the coast and the city of Dalyan, up further the Köyceğiz region and even further are the Sandras Mountains, while to the west beautiful coves meet up with high slopes, and little further on is the coast of Sarıgerme and Babaada. Those who continue further can reach the Aşı Cove, which is much loved by Blue Cruise travellers. At these coves picnicking and swimming in off the beaten track areas is possible.
 
 
Kaunos is one of the most mysterious cities in the Mediterranean region. It’s situated among Marmaris, Köyceğiz and Sarıgerme. The waters of Köyceyiz lake fall into the Mediterranean Sea by a natural canal. The canal, which is approximately fifteen metres in width, seperates Kaunos from Dalyan. On a steep slope just opposite the town of Dalyan, sizeable rock tombs which belong to the people of Kaunos are seen. These rock tombs are the landmark of Kaunos and Dalyan.
Kaunos ruins are one kilometre away from Dalyan. It’s possible to reach Kaunos by motorway or by sea. Daily excursions from Marmaris to Kaunos and to Dalyan are organized everyday. However, because of the shallowness of the water at some points where the waters of the canal fall into the Mediterranean, yachts are not allowed to enter Kaunos. Passengers are carried from here to Kaunos by small boats. Kaunos ruins are one kilometre inside from the canals. That’s why, after disembarking from the boat, visitors are required to walk for ten minutes to get to Kaunos.
 
 As the stabilized road has a slope, it is necessary to walk up the hill. The city ramparts are partly in good condition. These ramparts indicate that you have arrived at the antique city.
After the city walls you can come across a shop where visitors meet their needs and the guard stays there. At this point there is a label with a schematic drawing suggesting the visitor how Kaunos can be toured. While touring Kaunos different routes are followed at the entrance and the exit. The exit is at Dalyan side and there are boats waiting at this part. Besides there is a toilet, a shop for some needs and a cafetaria.
