This is a most beautiful area of Turkey with an awe inspiring coastline. The small town of Dalyan has a wonderful location on a river which connects a large inland lake to the Mediterranean Sea. Iztuzu Beach has just been voted the sixth best beach in the world and offers 5km of white sand and very safe swimming and no crowds. This is a conservation area so there are no beach front developments. The people are utterly charming and welcome visitors to their town of which they are very proud. This is an excellent location for families particularly those with young teenagers keen to spread their wings as it is a very safe location which does not attract the large groups of young people seeking clubs and alcohol.

Why Rod Coy chose Dalyan
Hilary and I first visited Turkey and Dalyan in 2004. We immediately fell in love with Dalyan and the Turkish people. The town has retained its charm with the restriction on building height and size. It is a quiet place without clubs and discos. The area has everything. Outstanding scenery, a host of physical activities to enjoy, delightful restaurants and a protected beach voted one of the 10 best beaches in the world. Dalyan is located only 25 minutes from Dalaman Airport so makes getting there very easy after a long flight.
