After breakfast in our hotel, you will be met by your private guide and will be boarding our minivan to drive on to Dalyan. Covering some of the most beautiful and fecund fields in Southwest Turkey, you will reach the village of Dalyan from where we will take our private wooden boat named “taka” and will have an adorable cruise on the waters of Koycegiz Lake.
The first place we will visit is the sulphur baths that are known as the Baths of Cleopatra. The tradition states that even the great Queen of Egypt bathed here to make her skin look more attractive. Continue your cruise on the waters of Koycegiz Lake and reach the famed beach at the mouth of the lake opening on to the Aegean Sea, where Caretta Caretta turtles come to lay their eggs once every year. You can enjoy cold refreshments at a cafe on this beach enjoying the beautiful scenery of the Aegean Sea. Returning back to our boat, we will cruise on to ancient Caunos that was known for piracy in the antiquity. The rock carved tombs of the Lycian Kings, which date back to 4th century BC, will be another scenic asset to your day. We will stop for an included lunch here. After viewing the ruins of Caunos, you will return again by boat to Dalyan and continue to Kekova and embark our cruise.
