After approximately an hour and thirty minutes bus journey, we’re in Dalyan to board our river boats.
Then a cruise along the maze of channels which join the nearby fresh water lake Köycegiz and the Mediterranean. Being a natural and massive fish farm, Dalyan is home to a great many species of birds, fish and amphibians (egrets, kingfishers, silver mullets, bream, sea bass, turtles, blue crabs etc.). First we visit the mud baths on the lake. It’s the oldest and the best in the area .
The mud and the sulfurous springs with an ideal temperature and mineralistic composition have been serving as rejuvenating ( cut ten years off our ages! ), beautifying ( not that any of the ladies need it! ), and therapeutic natural agents for thousands of years.
After lunch at our restaurant on the water front back in the village, this time we sail down-river along the antique city CAUNOS, which is especially famed with the Ionic temple-like tombs of the kings in Lycian style dating back to 7th century BC.
Then it’s time for a swim break on the TURTLE BEACH which has been listed as one of the world’s best ten. Keep cameras handy cause this might be your chance to picture a CARETTA ie loggerhead,a gigantic marine turtle breeding in the area for 95 million years.
