This trip takes you on a curving route around the coastline from Marmaris to the town of Dalyan. It’s famed for its loggerhead turtle breeding sites, and you’ll see a gilded statue of the sea creatures in the centre of town. After a quick nosey around, you’ll head to one of the Dalyan Çayi River’s jetties for a motorboat tour along the winding waterways. As you coast through the reeds, you’ll see the jaw-dropping Lycian Rock Tombs come into sight. These column-fronted caverns are cut straight out of the cliff face, and are said to contain the remains of ancient kings. Your walk through the history books continues in Kaunos, where you can stroll among crumbling ruins that date back to the fifth century BC. After a leisurely boat trip back to Dalyan, you’ll board the bus back to Marmaris.
