It was lovely to see how these beautiful tombs were built along the river and viewing them from the river boat.

This is an absolute must visit place in Turkey! You spend time in a nature protected area, the delta of Dalyan/Dalaman. You will for sure see awesome Turtles and feel the powerful energy of past times.

If you are in the area take this boat trip to view the tombs they are beyond belief and spectacular. As per Thomas Cook one of the 7 wonders to cross off your bucket list of historical sites to see.

You've seen the pictures so no doubt have a good idea what to expect. These tombs are visible from much of Dalyan. You can get a row-boat across to "the other side" for 5tl return but be aware that you can't actually visit the tombs...More

The rock tombs can be seen from the town, or on a river trip or you can walk down the road after crossing the river like we did. There is an ancient roman amphitheater a good walk down this sane road 1 hour each way....More

You can only see these tombs from the river, I believe...you can't get much closer. Boats from Dalyman past the tombs are every 10 minutes or so, and will stop by the tombs for photos before continuing to the beach.

Not sure if the new tourist site is open yet. You can view from Dalyan or from the riverside. Buggy would probably be a no im afraid. Check out on google. Dalyan and Lycian Rock Tombs.
