Top Beaches on the Turquoise Coast

Dalaman is graced with plenty of stunning places where you can settle in and relax.

  • Step back in time at Patara beach, where ancient ruins are scattered throughout the lush hills, which roll towards the twinkling sea. One of the Mediterranean’s longest beaches, it offers nine miles of perfect golden sand.
  • The world famous Blue Lagoon is located at Olu Deniz beach, one of Turkey’s most famous and beautiful spots. Like something from a storybook, clear blue water ripples towards pristine white sand in this secluded national park. The warm water is ideal for swimming and snorkelling, and the beach is the perfect place to take a winning holiday snapshot.
  • Taking a dip in Dalaman’s popular mud baths, located in Dalyan, is an unusual and unforgettable experience. Coat yourself all-over in the famous mud and let it dry in the sun, enjoying the bizarre dry and crackly sensation before heading into the sulphur springs. Fun yet relaxing.
  • For a truly special experience, head to Iztuzu. You’ll find a classic beach setting with sunbeds, umbrellas, and fine sand, along with the one-of-a-kind Sea Turtle Conservation Foundation. This famous beach is where protected loggerhead turtles live, and you and tour the centre and learn about the incredible local effort to keep them safe.

Art & Culture in Dalaman

Dalaman is home to cultural attractions, both ancient and alive. The eerie ghost village of Kayaköy gives you a window into a different era. Frozen in time, the town was virtually abandoned in the 1920s and you can now wander through the overgrown neighbourhoods and pathways.

If you’re game for a climb, venture up the steep ascent to see the Lycian tombs that are carved into Fethiye’s cliffs. Beautiful columns and crumbling windows gaze proudly over the city in a strange and fascinating archaeological wonder. Part of the ancient city of Kaunos, you can also tour other incredible monuments, including the Greek theatre and Hellenistic fountain house.

To get a taste for Turkey’s vibrant traditions that are still going strong, visit one of the many local markets that take place around Dalaman. You’ll find everything from gold and silver jewellery to imitation designer handbags. Look for pottery and locally-made handcrafts to find a special souvenir you can take home with you. The region’s biggest market takes place on Tuesdays in the town of Fethiye.

What is the nightlife like in Dalaman?

Depending on the pace of nighttime entertainment you’re after, there’s plenty to keep you entertained in Dalaman. Each resort will have bars and clubs that reflect the area’s unique character. Hisaronu and Marmaris promise a night to remember, with nightclubs pumping out tunes until the small hours.

If you’re looking for something a little more low-key, you can relax in the many pubs and cafes dotted throughout the smaller towns. The fishing village of Kalkan is perched on the hills above the harbour, full of hotels and shops that become rooftop restaurants at night, giving you an exclusive view to watch the moon reflect on the bay while sipping a nightcap.
