Whether you are seeking beach relaxation, family fun or action-packed days out enjoying southern Turkey's spectacular climate, Dalyan has it all. For the restless, you can chose from scuba diving, deep sea fishing, white water rafting, paragliding, trekking and mountain biking. You can take boat trips from Dalyan harbour out around the coast, or to the long white sandy beach. Of particular interest are the protected loggerhead turtles that nest there. Excellent day trips can be booked through tourist information offices including jeep safaris into the valley, visits to mosques and swimming in the lake. Romantic evening strolls around the harbour are a must, followed by a meal of locally caught seafood or the speciality spicy lamb and cracked wheat. Dalyan boasts some excellent restaurants and bars along its riverfront. Try Safran Restaurant, set in beautiful riverside gardens with views over the Dalyan river to the famous rock tombs.
