A small village in an area of outstanding beauty, Dalyan is historic, unhurried and very hard to leave. Set on the west corner of Turkey’s Mediterranean coast, Dalyan is an unspoilt village surrounded by pine-clad hills, cotton fields and miles of untouched coastline. A traditional little fishing village nestling on the riverbank near Lake Köycegiz, it’s close to the astonishing rock tombs carved out of the local cliffs 2.500 years ago.Ali Baba’s portrait. “The Mud Man”.
