Iztuzu Beach, Dalyan

4.5
Iztuzu Beach 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.

  • The beach stretches south of Delan, 6 km away. It can be reached by boat or by car. We went by the signs from the center of town, near the main square. The turtles are eggs in May to September, so as not to harm the dumping. The construction will be forbidden to approach the dumping area. The fuse is used as the sandy and picturesque beach Bathing. Suitable for families with children.

  • This beach, which extends between Dalyan Delta and the Mediterranean Sea, is about 6 km long and has a very interesting and relaxing environment because of its thin sand, shallow sea water, karetta sea turtles breeding ground. If you like swimming in calm waters, I recommend you go to the beach before noon. With the light breeze that comes out this afternoon, it's a bit of a joke and it doesn't swim very comfortably.
