DALYAN KOYCEGIZ TRIP FROM MARMARIS AND ICMELER

Dalyan Koycegiz is a little cost town hiding a lot of history and naturel surprises. The day proceeds like a little adventure. The day starts with picking you up from your accomodation in the morning with airconditioning bus and fallows with reaching Dalyan Koycegiz lake in 90 mins. After a short visit of the town itself you will get to small river boats and lead our way through the green channels of African Queen passages. Most of you might not know but it is named of the British movie African Queen filmed in this geography in early 50’s. Moving through the channels will give you a feeling of adventure of Indiana Jonhs. Dont worry about the crocks lol.

Above the river’s sheer cliffs are the weathered façades of Lycian tombs cut from rock, circa 400 BC. The ruins of the ancient trading city of Kaunos are a short boat trip across the river.

King Kaunos

According to mythology Kaunos was founded by King Kaunos, son of the Carian King Miletus and Kyane, and grandson of Apollo. Kaunos had a twin sister by the name of Byblis who developed a deep, unsisterly love for him. When she wrote her brother a love letter, telling him about her feelings, he decided to flee with some of his followers to settle elsewhere. His twin sister became mad with sorrow, started looking for him and tried to commit suicide. Mythology says that the Calbys river emerged from her tears.

Iztuzu or Turtle Beach

The south of Dalyan Koycegiz on the Mediterranean coast, lies Iztuzu Beach, near the village of the same name is a popular area for sunbathing and swimming. There are regular boat and minibus services to the beach. Visitors should be aware of the wooden stakes in the beach to mark nesting sites. The road route is particularly scenic, offering views of Sülüngür Lake. In 2008 İztuzu Beach was proclaimed winner in the category Best Open Space (Europe) by The Times because of the eco-friendly exploitation of the beach. In 2011 Dalyan and İztuzu Beach were proclaimed Best Beach Destination by many worldwide review sites.

The beach is well known for the Caretta caretta (Loggerhead sea turtle), an endangered species that are existing for about 45 million years. International animal protection organizations monitor and protect the turtles’ nesting grounds in Turkey. The beach is closing between 20.00 and 8:00 hours during the period that the turtles lay their eggs and hatchlings go out to sea (May to October).

  •   Brendan was recommended to me and a friend through a family member before we had even booked our holiday. We got in touch with Brendan through whatsapp and he recommended us some hotels. Once our hotel was booked, we arranged pick up from dalaman airport to our hotel over whatsapp. Once we landed in dalaman airport, Brendan arranged for the taxi to stop of at his office before taking us to our hotel so that he could make us feel welcome in Marmaris, which he did a great job of. We booked all our excursions through Brendan, and after seeing prices offered by others throughout our holiday, we were glad we chose Brendan. It was a great pleasure booking everything through Brendan who went above and beyond for us. We will be booking with him again when we return next year. More

      Whilst on our holiday to Marmaris we wanted to do some excursions and I came across this website. The cost was reasonable in comparison to some of the excursion shops in the town.

    I booked online and was contacted via watsapp by a chap who would visit the hotel with the tickets. It felt really odd giving cash to a guy on a moped and I began to think that I might have been stupid and would not see my cash again.There was no need to worry.

    Our first excursion was the horse safari which was fantastic for the price (however you do get stung for the pictures as they are beautiful). We also booked the boat trip to turtle bay but unfortunately my son was poorly and we could not attend. I advised them via waytsapp to not colect us and they were fantastic offering to rearrange the excursion for an alternative day (unfortunately we had no time left on our trip).

    Would highly recommend this company. More
