Weather

The weather has always been fantastic, we have been in May/ June and September. There may be the odd spot of rain on the one or two odd days. But with in half an hour its gone as quick as it arrives.

Holiday

Love it every time we go and cannot wait to get back each time. this year we arrive in September for a Month. And the fresh fruit and veg is brilliant, we love the markets and the people are so friendly, we love them.

Places Recommended

There is lots to see and do, but for us now in our 60's we don't know of a more relaxing place. And we have travelled around. Just sit at any of the cafes or bars with an apple tea or beer and people watch, eat cheaply or a bit more up market, swim in the wonderful warm waters of Isuzu Beach and chill. Fantastic.

Weather

We've been to Dalyan two years in a row between the end of July and mid August (work reasons) when he weather is at its hottest. It takes time to get used to but so long as you're careful and drink LOTS of water during the day it's not a problem.

Holiday

Brilliant. Dalyan has everything you need to actually relax on holiday. Plenty of restaurants which can be hit or miss - mostly hit for us. Glorious scenery and easy access to the beach via water taxi or Dolmus - I can't wait to get back there next month!!

Places Recommended

The Co-op trips from the riverside are very good value for money. The mudbaths near Koycegiz, Fethiye & Olu Deniz and Gocek Islands boat cruise are all excellent days out with fabulous scenery!

May is Perfect. From the end of June the heat can be a little overbearing though till early September.

Holiday

Have been going to Dalyan on and off for 25 years now.

I have recommended to many friends in that time who have all become returnees to Dalyan many times.

Dalyan is out there on its own with beautiful scenery and
great for wildlife lovers. Generally a great place to chill and unwind.

Atmosphere is very laid back and friendly thanks to the Locals as well as the other tourists all in search of a similar Holiday.
Plenty of restaurants that provide authentic local Turkish food as well as the normal mix of modern international fare. Dalyan is a rare gem of a place that will have you returning time after time.

Places Recommended

Caunos, the 3000 year old Lycian ruins on the opposite side of the river.

The boat or bus to the beach goes to the turtle hospital at the back of the beach.

Boat trips on the Lake.

The Saturday market is always good to pick up a bargain.

Hire a bike and venture out or maybe horse riding or even white water rafting for the more adventurous.

Weather

First two weeks in September and the weather was really hot. Temperature was 32 degrees at 7.30pm. Great for sunbathing.

Holiday

The holiday was good apart from the problem of cats roaming around between the tables in the restaurants. I do not like cats so was on tenterhooks each evening that we went out to eat. We did find three restaurants that, if you sat upstairs, then the cats weren't a problem. So 'non cat lovers,' beware of this.

Places Recommended

China Town and Capital Park restaurants.
Also the 'Caretta, Caretta tour' to see the turtles was very enjoyable. The boatman took us to Turtle Beach as well for a short visit which gave us a taster of what it is like. A lovely relaxing morning (three hour trip) and only cost about three pounds each.

Weather

We've stayed two successive years (2011 and 2012) from late May to mid June. Occasional torrential rain, hot and sunny throughout

Holiday

Enjoyed it thoroughly as it combines perfectly the beauty and splendour of Turkey's scenery and ancient ruins with a laid-back resort with excellent transport links to airports, amazing beach and lake. The locals don't over-do the hassling to get your business.

Places Recommended

The beach is protected from development of any sort - because it's a prized breeding place for Loggerhead turtles - and is enormous and has stunning scenery; access by riverboat from the centre of Dalyan or by dolmus. A hired car is useful but not essential.

Kaunos, complete with Lycian rock-tombs is very close and there are numerous ancient ruins across all of this coastline.

We visited Ephesus (Efes) which is some distance away and a little disappointing but there are far more interesting and much less busy ruins to the east, such as Patara. It's a sunny, beautiful museum!

We have been going to Dalyan for 12 years in May and October; it's cooler then.

Dalyan is a peaceful, easy going village with country walks, boat trips, great authentic Turkish food, Roman town, turtles, fishing and most of all the residents of Dalyan.

Go: you won't regret it.

Holiday

Always superb in Dalyan.

It's a little piece of heaven on earth, with rock tombs, the famous turtle beach, the river.

The weather was great. There is a lovely breeze that appears around midday that come's up through the valley and cools you down, it's wonderful.

Holiday

Beautiful.

The river has lovely boat ride's. If you go to the left you go to the sea and beach, if you go to the right you go to the mud baths, hot springs and to a beautiful lake.

It's a great boat trip, and you see big turtles swimming about in the in the river and in the big Lake ahead.

It's a conservation area,very green and lush, I would not want to be any where else.

We would recommend a private villa to stay in, we stayed in a viila called Kavak Evi. It was very private, the agent we went to was Turkevi Ltd, www.dalyanproperty.com, phone 00902522844444, ask for Kubilay Kececi.

Places Recommended

There is loads of information once you get there, Mr Kececi will help you and tell you where to go,

I went for a week at the end of September and had just missed some dramatic storms.

The weather was fabulous for us.

Holiday

We stayed at Villa Gol Manzara which we booked through dalyanvillas .com. The villa was great and the pool huge.

Just a short stroll into the village. We also made use of the mountain bikes supplied by the owner. How great to be able to explore this lovely place.

Places Recommended

Yes !! Hire a car and drive down to Gocek or just take the local bus.

Food wise Anatolia was good and Sagris.

Weather in May/June is better for us. Some days around 80 degress, some days higher! Also had a couple of cloudy days and some rain. Cooler at night which makes it more pleasant.

Holiday

Dalyan is such a great place. Nice bars to chill out in and not full of people like the larger resorts. Also only 20 minutes from Dalaman airport so no massive journey to your resort once you land. We stayed in Villa Samimi and got a really good deal for just two of us using the villa which would normally sleep 6. We've stayed there 3 times now and it feels like our own home. Did a jeep safara and the 12 Island Tour from Gocek and basically relaxed the rest of the time.

Places Recommended

Can be worth hiring a car to see the surrounding area but for a first time trip, there is enough to keep you occupied in Dalyan itself. Favourite restaurants are Bistro Clou and Saki - both traditional Turkish food and wonderful if your a vegetarian.

Starting to get a little cold at night but the restaurants had welcoming log fires when it was necessary

Wonderfully relaxing place - do as much or as little as you like, you will still get so much from your holiday in Dalyan that you'll return time and time again

The weather is always amazing. Very hot summers and very pleasant in the Autumn. During the summer months, the nights are very warm and without A/C could be a little uncomfortable. Most hotels and Villas do have A/C.

Holiday

The people are great, with a good sense of humour. Whilst they are all making a living out of tourism, they are neither threatening or over bearing when it come to shopping or even looking for a restaurant for the evening.
Eating out is a wonderful experience. Local restaurants cater for all tastes and appetites. We found places that were full of the shop, bar and cafe owners from the resort and there is no better recommendation than that if its local cusine youre after.
Exceptional value and great food.
