Dalyan is famous for its impressive Lycian tombs, which are carved into the cliffs of the river. These fascinating ancient structures date back to 400 BC and are well worth a visit, as are the ruins of the ancient city of Kuanos, which are situated on the other side of the river.
This 10th century seaport was once a bustling trading city but was abandoned by the 15th century as a result of a Malaria epidemic. It now serves as an interesting archaeological and ecological site with superb views and thriving wildlife thanks to its protected status.
Ancient ruins, mud baths and loggerhead sea turtle breeding grounds are just some of the magical features of Dalyan. Beach sports, bike rides and river tours will satisfy your inner adventurer. Don’t miss the ornate Lycian tombs, carved into the cliffs along the Dalyan Cayi River circa 400 B.C.
