Dalyan Boat Trips

You can also go to Kaunos by boats leaving from Dalyan. From the wharf near the ruins reachable from Dalyan by boat it is just a 10 minutes walk to the remains of the ancient city of Kaunos. Those coming by yachts can drop anchor around Delikli Ada and go ashore by small boat. Kaunos was a significant trading port, though it lost its strategic importance as the alluvial sands filled the harbour. Pleasure boats pass through the Dalyan River – a nesting site for loggerhead turtles – on their way to the ruins of ancient Caunos and Iztuzu beach. And finally there is a fountain of youth: in the form of mud baths which was visited also many famous people. It is fun, it is rejuvenating and it, surely, is great chance for an unusual snapshot.
