Private tour to Dalyan / Caunos with your car rental

Dalyan ! Enjoy Mud Baths... King Tombs.... Caretta Caretta's

You may have heard the names of Dalyan and Caunos again and again as a definite 'must see' and if nothing else the 7km sandy beach worth the trip
Dalyan and Caunos are on the southwestern coast of Turkey. They are set in the center of an un-spoilt broad delta. The area is environmentally protected. This is one of the few surviving places of paradise, an area of natural beauty and historical interest.
When you arrive to Dalyan Caunos Town, you will need to get small river boats to start your journey up the river. Passing through meadows of flowers, edged with cypress trees and a fish farm where the fish from the lake at Koycegiz are bred. You pass by the reeds covering the lake so close that you could almost touch them. The name Dalyan means 'fishery' in Turkish and all the restaurants along the river do a roaring trade. Rounding the final bend you will find the Lycian rock tombs carved into the sheer cliff face. The ancient city of Caunos lies on top of a hill dates from before 400 BC. A short guided tour at the site shows the theatre and acropolis. The views alone from the hilltop are stunning. Caunos was once a Mediterranean port city but over the centuries the silt from the Dalyan River choked the harbor and today the town lies several kilometers from the sea. 
Further up the river there are the mud and sulphur baths. As you approach the mud pools, the smell is awful but you will get used to it soon as you go into the hot mud. There was a lot of hilarity as everyone around you are covered in mud. Don't forget your cameras! 
Finally, there is this famous sandy beach! A heaven and nesting place for the endangered loggerhead turtle. They lay their eggs on this beach. Therefore you will not be allowed to use the middle section of the beach for sun-bathing or playing.
You could have your lunch in a very simple restaurant by the river, and sitting beside the cool river on such a hot day would be very heavenly.
