Map

Special interest holidays:

There is an amazing range of habitats in the local area; from the reed beds north of the town to the Koycegiz Lake. With many species of birds, from White Tailed Eagles to Red-rumped swallows, expert birders and amateurs would struggle not to have a great birding holiday. We can organise guided walking tours through areas. We manage perfect accommodation for large groups throughout the year, that are great for comfortable relaxation when not out in the wilderness.

Walking groups taking international excursions are aware of the amazing possibilities available to walkers and ramblers in and around Dalyan, Turkey.There are a number of great walks to be done in the local area; from the walk up to Candir and Kaunos over stunning mountains and rock tombs, to the Liquid Amber Forests of Dalyan.The Famous Lykian Way walk of 300+km across the southern coast of Turkey, is a trekking holiday for the hardcore (especially in the summer).

Coast/Beach:

Dalyan is best known for its lush greenery, the winding river and a beach which is not just a natural wonder but also won The Times Best Open Space Award in 2010 and is one of the few natural breeding grounds of the beautiful Carreta Carreta sea turtle which can be seen. Over 6km of golden sands with access by bus, car and boat there are cafeterias at either end for refreshments but plenty of empty space amongst the dunes to escape to.

The beach is a short Dolmus or boat ride away.

Travel:

he nearest airport is Dalaman which is a 25 minutes drive away. Once in Dalyan car hire is not essential as we are so close to everything you could need. The town itself is quite small and everything is within easy walking distance.

Distances:

Everything is within walking or cycling distance in Dalyan. This apartments are easy walk to restaurants, bars and cafes and the riverboats that you take to the beach or the ruins of Kaunos with its amphitheatre and ancient Lycian rock tombs, the mud baths, sea fishing and so on. Fethiye and Olu Deniz are 50 minutes drive away. Marmaris is about 75 minutes drive, both of which have ferries to Rhodes.

Further Details:

There are many activities available such as trekking through the mountains, cycling and Jeep safaris; sunrise or moon light boat cruises for fishing , tours to various islands or just along the coast. Sailing, sea kayaking & white water rafting and diving & snorkeling in clear waters through caves and an abundance of marine life. Horse riding is also available.

Dalyan town itself is compact stretching only a mile in any direction from the center and is framed by a glorious backdrop of pine clad mountains in every direction. The flatness of town makes it a perfect place for walking with children or the elderly and it is a delight to cycle around. For more active holidaymakers there are forests and hiking hills all within walking distance. Dalyan is also distinguished by the lack of package tourists though there are still plenty of bars and restaurants to cater for all tastes. There is a market on Saturday’s selling local produce, clothing and tourist items.

The town has a bank, ATMs a post office a number of well stocked supermarkets centred around the town square. Also the Dolmus (bus) area for trips to surrounding attractions and only 50m or so to the riverside to sit by boats or you can take a relaxing walk along the the river or cross the river to Kaunos tombs and amphitheatre. The boats can take you to the beach or on moonlight cruises to the lake, crab fishing . For the more adventurous there are walking tours, scuba diving and paragliding . There are also hot springs and mud baths at the nearby Koycegiz lake.

Bright, spacious and airy.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I are frequent, annual visitors to to Dalyan and we have lived in a number of different hotels and rental properties. The Honeybee apartment was right up there with the best of them. A bright, spacious, airy and fully equipped apartment with steps from the front room straight down to a welcoming (shared) pool. For the first 10 days of our holiday we had exclusive use of the pool until some upstairs neighbours arrived on Day 11 but it didn't spoil our enjoyment. We found the property to be spotlessly clean, well maintained, the pool was cleaned and topped up every day, and as the owners have said, it was just a short walk into the town centre, close to many fine restaurants and bars. We'd thoroughly recommend this property to singles, couples, or a family. It really was another memorable trip for us and we felt particularly safe, having been broken into during our previous stay elsewhere about 8 months earlier.The only slightly disappointing feature was a lack of wi-fi in the property, but after negotiating a very favourable rate with the hotel proprietor next door we were switched on very quicklywith fast access to our tablets etc. All in all, it's a wonderful place to stay.

lovely apartment

Great location for a stay in Dalyan and the apartment is of a high standard with everything you need for a self catering holiday.

Really enjoyed our stay here and would highly recommend it with a reasonable price to boot.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5

Everything was wonderful. The property is very nicely furnished with everything you need to make your stay a home from home. The garden and pool area are delightful, with areas both in the sun and the shade, all day. The property is an easy stroll into the main area of Dalyan where you will find boats for days out, shopping and restaurants. There are plenty of supermarkets within a short walk. The owner and the agent were first class with the initial booking, transfers and with answering all enquiries promptly. All together a very nice experience.

Fantastic family holiday accommodation!

  • 5 of 5

It's always great when your first reaction on arriving at your holiday location is to grin broadly.

Honeybee makes a fantastic first impression - great pool in very well maintained gardens, featuring orange trees, fig trees and bright flowers!

But when you open the front door, it just gets better. Very nicely furnished and fully equipped, Honeybee is perfect either for a couple wishing to relax or a family needing the back-up of the ability to fully self-cater and to wash clothes.

Two great bedrooms with loads of storage space, a very comfortable living room / kitchen (with nearly everything you will need) / dining room and a lovely wrap-around terrace overlooking the pool.

Located within easy reach of the centre of the town (an easy 6-10 minute stroll depending on your pace), it really is an ideal base.

We would all thoroughly recommend Honeybee and are already looking forward to returning again in the future. Last thing to say is that the owners and their local agent were top-drawer in making the booking process and on-site questions very, very easy!
