Iztuzu Beach 2, Dalyan

4.5
Iztuzu Beach 2 is a narrow but long stretch of sand that acts as a barrier between the Dalyan River and the Mediterranean Sea. With 4.5 km (2.79 mi) of sand, it rarely feels crowded. Often referred to as "Turtle Beach," it is a main breeding ground for these creatures, which you're sure to catch sight of. The federal government has made efforts to protect the species, leaving the area untouched and restricting public access for periods of time. While this may be frustrating for some, it is the reason the beach has retained its original beauty. That said, check ahead to make sure it's open to the public during your stay.

  • Hello, Iztuzu Beach is one of the rare beaches of Turkey. The beach of Iztuzu, one of the few beaches where Caretta carettas spawning, is enchanted by the people. Because of the beach protection gold, it is forbidden to make a commercial or private structure to the beach and its relatives. Only the municipality has a small beverage and food-healthy restaurant. Shower areas and dressing booths are also included. The beach is used between 08:00-20:00 hours. Outside these hours, the entrance to the beach is closed. The reason is that the Caretta carettas come to spawn. It's almost impossible to walk barefoot in the sand during the day. That's why I don't recommend a trip without slippers. Transportation to the beach is done by minibuses from Dalyan Center. If you want to go with your own car, there is a sizeable car park. The price is good.
