The best thing to do in Dalyan! Look for the rowing boat crossing the river next to cuanos park, opposite ‘The other side restaurant’, which will take you there and back for 5TL. Once you’re over the river it’s a 1.5km walk which is mostly...More

I didn't get to see nearly enough of this huge ancient city as we were severely time limited. What I did see though was stunning and I'll be sure to return. 10TL entrance fee and apparently the amphitheatre is the place to go at sunset....More

Kaunos has wonderfully atmospheric ruins - in particular an amphitheatre with stunning views over the bay. Well worth a visit.

You get to this via a small row boat from Dalyan. Stop off at the other side for a freshly squeezed (i.e. as you watch!) glass of pomegranate juice. It is about a 10-15 minute walk to the entrance to the ruins, all flat apart...More
