Take a stole down the river path, or jump on a co-op boat to the beach, and take in the view of the tombs. Flood lit in the evening, and visible from several restaurants. From the skewed crossroads at Rumours/White House, take the road to the river and enter the park on the corner near Saki restaurant. Great views and... More

Organized by Thomas Cook, River trip to see the tombs, as well as Krater and go to turtle beach. Definitely worth doing. We did this as a departure day trip which was great. Tour guide was brilliant.

Just an incredible sight that seems to be visible from wherever you are in Dalyan. It seems impossible for these tombs to have been made so perfectly with the handmade tools they had available in those days. I very much doubt if it could be done today even with such advanced technology available. When they are lit up at night... More

You can't actually visit the tombs as they are inaccessible; which begs the question "how on earth did they build these?". But they are stunning!

DON'T CHARTER A BOAT TO SEE THESE. Go to a restaurant or cafe opposite them and see from there. You get the view of all of them. Other option: charter a 5 TL rowboat across the river and, on your walk to Kaunos, stop in the cemetery. Amazing views from there as well.
