As with many other places on the South coast of Turkey, Dalyan is known for its natural beauty and also for the Lycian rock tombs (from 4,000 BC) embedded into the cliffs (overlooking the river) where the king of Caunos was entombed. It's a special place, not only because of its Lycian and Roman history but also because it is an area of vast wetland and Iztuzu Beach is the nesting place of many of Turkey's loggerhead turtles.
