What You Can Expect
Your first stop is at a secluded beach on the peninsula’s north coast, known locally as ‘aquarium bay.’ Use your time to swim in the clear waters with the colorful fish, or simply sunbathe on the beach. A set of phosphorus caves are nearby that you can explore easily, if you wish.
From Marmaris, continue cruising around Adaköy, and then head east toward Dalyan, the gorgeous coastal village west of Fethiye. Savor a lunch of grilled chicken, salad and either rice or pasta as you cruise, and then dock at İztuzu Beach for your next break. Known to many as ‘turtle beach’ for its large population of loggerhead turtles, the sun-drenched sandy beach is a conservation area and prime breeding ground for the endangered reptiles.
Take some time to swim, sunbathe and look out for friendly turtles along the beach, and then hop aboard your riverboat for a cruise along the Dalyan River. Stop at the local mud baths and thermal pool, and make the most of some free time to wallow in the mineral-dense mud that’s said to aid skin complaints and rheumatism. Cleanse yourself with a refreshing dip in the natural thermal water, and then cruise past the ancient King’s Tombs at Kaunos while learning about their history from your guide.
Swap back onto your main boat at İztuzu Beach, and finally cruise back around Adaköy to Marmaris. After stepping onto dry land, your day trip finishes with a hotel drop-off.
Was a very enjoyable day - exactly as described and both my husband and I had a lovely day.
Caution - take throwaway flips flops to walk around the mud baths - very stoney and quite a walk between the mud bath and the showers and back again to the thermal pool.
The highlight was one the campest, funniest waiters/hosts Club Captain Amman - he made the trip even more memorable - his table top belly dancing was hilarious.
This tour was great lots of variety very well organised and heaps of fun, especially the mud bath experience. Very good value for money.
