Dalyan Mud Baths and Turtle Beach Day Trip from Bodrum

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    The Dalyan Delta, with a long, golden sandy beach at its mouth, is a nature conservation area, home to plenty of wildlife, including sea turtles, all to be seen on your visit to Bodrum.

    High on the cliff face, at a bend in the river and above the fascinating ancient harbor city of Caunos, observe the 2,000-year-old Lycian tombs that were carved in to the rock. Then land on the unspoiled sands of Turtle Beach and relax, with the opportunity to walk around, sunbathe, swim, and more.

    Enjoy a relaxing full-day tour of Dalyan on Turkey’s Lycian Coast, sailing by boat across the turquoise sea to Turtle Beach (officially known as Iztuzu Beach).

    Admire the remarkable rock cut tombs of the Kings of Kaunos along the coast. Founded around the 9th-century BC on the border of the Kingdom of Lycia, Kaunos became an important Carian city around 400 BC and its culture reflected aspects of both kingdoms. The tombs were designated for the kings and other powerful people of the city, and filled with food, money, jewelry and other valuable items.

    Marvel at the Dalyan Canal as it weaves its way from Köyceğiz Lake to the beach, a peninsula jutting out from the mainland. Famous for the endangered loggerhead turtles (Caretta Caretta) that lay their eggs in the sand, as well as blue crab, the beach is now protected to help conserve the turtles, making it out of bounds to the public from May through September.

    Jump into a mud bath for an indulgent and therapeutic wallow before your return transfer to your hotel.

    Rave reviews about the mud bath but in the end it was disappointing although we did have a great time and a lot of laughs. I think I can still smell the mud in my swimming shorts and indeed it did take a long time...More

    Visited mud baths which was a bit of fun but stinks to high heavens. You have to be careful when you get in the bath as its in steps you cannot see and the mud is very slimy so you could easily slip. Not recommended...More
