Dalyan is the select little riverside town with the mud baths, Lycian rock tombs and Kaunos ancient city’s remains. It’s very genuinely a relaxing resort town. Caunos was an important Carian city in the 4th century BC. Kaunos is the border line between Caria and Lycia. Today’s Caunos’ Byzantine basilica, her massive ruins of the Roman baths and its ancient theater are awaiting for the discovery. Dalyan’s famous Istuzu sandy beach is the natural breeding habitat grounds for the loggerhead turtles which come ashore to lay their eggs in the sand.
