The area around Dalaman is quintessentially Mediterranean, with green mountains, rocky cliffs and whitewashed buildings overlooking the turquoise seas. With one significant advantage for those wishing to travel throughout the region - instead of some far flung piece of sand half a day’s journey from civilization, Dalaman is home to one of Turkey’s largest airports meaning visitors are never far from their next destination.

Dalaman is only 15 kms from the beach at Sarigerme and its raging river makes it a popular spot for river rafting and other water sports. When you get out of the water and back on the beach, mingle with the locals- the local turtles that is- that scuttle all over the Iztuzu Beach. Settle down for a nice meal to replenish your soul with the freshest food Turkey has to offer and then it’s on to the next port of call.
