Visit Dalyan and Caunos -- two of the most striking spots in the Marmaris area.
Travel by motor coach to the tiny village of Dalyan, where you will admire the small mosque and the statue in bronze representing the famous loggerhead (Caretta caretta) turtles that come here every year to lay their eggs on the Dalyan River Delta. This is a protected area for both vegetation and fauna.
Board a motorboat that will take you down the river's winding canals and through a maze of reeds on the Dalyan River Delta. Cotton plantations and fields alternate with small islands covered in reed thickets. During your journey down the river, you will see the famous temple-tombs of the ancient kings carved into the rocky cliffs.
Arriving in ancient Caunos, you will walk up the bare hillside to the ruins of the city, complete with a Roman theater, Roman bath and streets of the port city founded in the 5th century BC. Caunos was once a thriving trading center, but the silting up of the ancient harbor brought an end to the affluence of the city.
After visiting Caunos, you will return to the ship.
