Home Sweet Home…
The geographic location is uniquely positioned between Köyceğiz Lake and the shores of the Mediterranean. The whole area is a designated environmental protection zone. Despite being only 20 minutes from the busy Dalaman International Airport there are no package tourists or signs of mass consumerism here. Instead you are greeted by the local people, the small restaurants & bars and happy shopkeepers.
Dalyan has no high rise buildings and is in a firmly protected green belt area – which means it will be special this year, next year and for ever.
If you are looking for a new home and more relaxed lifestyle in a laid back town with all the amenities within walking distance this is the town for you!
Dalyan is well located to enjoy all the pleasures of the Turkish coast. Marmaris and Fethiye are an hours’ drive away so you can opt for peaceful country living but your never too far from a day out shopping, with a lovely selection of bars & restaurants and swish hotels to sample. If you are of a sporty nature there are a variety of outdoor sports available to you locally including Horse Ridıng, Kayaking, Windsurfıng, Scuba Diving and Paragliding. However if that all sounds a little bit too energetic then simply hop on your bike or put your walking boots on and go explore the surrounding countryside. If you like history then the ancient ruins of Kaunos across the river is the place to go.
During those hot summer months İztuzu Beach is the perfect place to chill out during the day. Throw your bikini in your beach bag, grab your poğaça from the local bakers and jump on the local bus or ‘Dolmus’ and your off. To truly enjoy the beauty of the Dalyan Delta take the local taxi boat to the beach or hire one of the local boats. Stop off at the Thermal Hot Springs & immerse yourself in the rejuvenating Mud Baths whilst enjoying the views across Koyceğiz Lake or go out to sea and explore the many beautiful bays along the coast
To get the most of your new laid back life style visit your local Turkish Hamam, the ultimate relaxation experience and the perfect excuse to help keep your year round tan. For the men there is the local Turkish Barbers, go regularly and this will soon become an essential part of your life(???)
After that busy day chilling on the beach or by the pool organise a BBQ for friends and neighbours Turkish style. Visit your local butcher and greengrocer for produce that doesnt get any fresher. Or if its Saturday go to the Market ‘Pazar’ for your weekly grocery shop and stop for a traditional pancake while you are there!
Celebrate a special occasion or just want a nice night out with friends then wonder into town (its never far away) and enjoy the warm turkish hospitality offered you by the locally owned restaurants and bars.
Dalyan, it is the little town with a bit of everything with the world at its doorstep!
