Retreat location

The town of Dalyan is located on the Turquoise coast in southern Turkey. Dalyan is well-known, thanks to its proximity to the famous seven-kilometer Iztuzu Beach where the endangered loggerhead turtles (Caretta caretta) lay their eggs, the beach, and the surrounding area is protected. The beach can be reached by minibus or by a relaxing boat ride on the Dalyan Canal and on through the reed beds.

As well as the loggerhead turtles, Dalyan is also home to the largest population of the soft-shelled Nile turtles (Trionyx triunguis). The wetland areas are home to many migrating birds and storks nest all over the area. Steeped in history, Dalyan is overlooked by ancient Lycian Rock Tombs which are the last resting places of the Kings of Kaunos, meanwhile, the Dalyan Canal weaves its way past the village on its way from Köyceğiz Lake to the beach.

Across the canal, you will find the ruins of the city of Kaunos with a Roman theatre, fortifications, basilica, and many other sites to be seen. Dalyan itself has strict building regulations which allow them to keep the traditional feeling in the village. Traditionally a fishing village, the village has a warm welcome for visitors.

The Saturday market is a joy to shop at, from the best quality fake designer wear to fresh vegetables and of course a plentiful collection of local spices and teas as a working market you will shop alongside tourists and locals alike.

Also with mud baths, thermal springs, a historic mosque, and scenic walks, Dalyan has it all for the perfect relaxing holiday. Nearby, you can also find Tlos, an ancient Roman site with Lycian rock caves, Saklikent Gorge, a natural marvel to walk through, and the beautiful bays of Aşı and Ekincik bay which are perfect for snorkeling.

Dalyan is also just over an hour's drive from Marmaris or Fethiye with the glorious Öludeniz just outside Fethiye. You can take a boat tour from Göcek around the 12 islands, or just walk around the marina and marvel at the yachts.

Sedir Resort is a charming and truly extraordinary hotel, bungalow, and suites which are located in the coolest part of Dalyan. The resort is set in a peaceful location surrounded by lush green fields and a liquid amber forest. This is a perfect place for nature lovers who visit Dalyan. All hotel rooms, bungalows, and suites have a panoramic view of the surrounding hills, forest, mountains, and swimming pool.

Sedir Resort will make an ideal base for yoga and Pilates retreats with over 10 years of experience. You can take a little walk to the forest, hire a bicycle, explore the area, pick your favorite reading corner in the huge garden, or simply relax by the pool with a refreshing drink.

Things to do (optional)

Gocek 12 islands boat trip

This is probably the best excursion whether you enjoy swimming or not. This trip is a good opportunity for swimming, sunbathing, or just a lazy day out. You will be able to swim in various crystal clear coves and bays during this trip. You will feel relaxed as you enjoy the sunshine and the scenery.

Iztuzu (Turtle Beach)

The beach, commonly referred to as Turtle Beach and also known as Iztuzu Beach, lies at the end of the Dalyan Delta and is a seven-kilometer sandbank. At one end, the beach is backed mountains and hills covered by pine trees, this is accessible by road and public minibus. The other end, referred to as the boat end, is backed by the reed beds that make up the labyrinth that is the Dalyan Delta.

The most popular way to visit the beach is via the public Dolmuş boat trip from the Dalyan harbor, the trip takes around 30 minutes and passes the Lycian Rock Tombs before heading into the reed-lined canals. On the trip, keep a lookout for the natural wildlife, dragonflies dancing alongside the boat and birds swooping through the reeds.

If you wish to spend a different day on the beach, why not take a walk along the beach to see the diversity of wildlife in one small area. You can take the boat to the beach and walk to the other end and return by minibus or vice versa. You will get to see the reed beds and views back towards Dalyan, or as the beach nears the mountains the ponds that sit on the beach and the hills.

Mud baths and springs

If you enjoy splashing around in the mud or wish to become more beautiful during your trip to Dalyan, then the mud baths are your answer. The mud is said to have anti-aging properties in that it removes your wrinkles. Firstly, cover your body in the mud and then bask in the sun while the mud bakes dry. As the mud dries, it shrinks your skin removing your wrinkles with it. While it has not been scientifically proven to have this effect, those that have tried it all believe themselves to have younger skin as a result. Failing any beauty effects, many families enjoy the time wallowing in the mud on a hot day.

Following your mud bath, take a dip in the thermal spring which has healing properties for the skin, respiratory system, and rheumatism. The waters at the Sultaniye Spring have a very high mineral content, in fact, the second highest in the world. The mud baths and hot springs can be reached by boat, it is usually the first stop on the daily boat tours of Dalyan.

The Kaunos Tombs

The rock tombs overlooking Dalyan were built to house the dead kings from the ancient city of Kaunos and offer an impressive sight that inspires all that see them. During your holiday, you will see them almost every day and at each glance. You will wonder at just how the ancient people of Kaunos carved such features with just the most basic of tools. When illuminated at night, the splendor is amplified with the orange glow.

Whitewater rafting

Dalyan area with its rich natural resources and beautiful rivers provides great opportunities for water sports like rafting. High mountains, long distance rivers, amazing green valleys, and spectacular geography make Dalyan region a real paradise for rafting and nature lovers.
