Iztuzu Beach

Iztuzu, Dalyan

 Good beach, with or w/o logger-head turtles. The town, 8 km (5 miles) NW of Dalaman Airport, the river, cliff tombs and Caunos ruins are a nice bonus.

Iztuzu Beach is backed by the Dalyan Delta.
Iztuzu’s six kilometres of golden sands are just a fifteen-minute drive from Dalyan Town. Perhaps for this reason, the beach is rarely crowded.

The beach is a fine strip of white sand that juts into the water. Backed by Dalyan Delta, it is a stunning and natural place. If you are seeking complete isolation, turn left on your way to Iztuzu and follow the off-road tracks into the mountains. You’ll travel through lush forests and isolated mountain villages, and eventually you’ll find a number of isolated, stunningly beautiful beaches.

Iztuzu Beach is a beautiful bar of fine, golden sand gently shelving into the sea. One of the most important nesting areas in Turkey, Iztuzu Beach is a place for the rare Caretta Caretta turtles lay their eggs here in the clean fine sand. It is completely undeveloped place, and is reached by a pleasant boat trip from Dalyan. Boats depart regularly from the riverfront for the short trip to the beautiful sandy Iztuzu Beach.
