We are starting from the miracle maze Dalyan River and Delta. Life in Dalyan has become synonymous with water. Until recently life was completely lead on the boat even weddings were held on the boats going in convoy. The goods are sold in markets, brought by boat. Dalyan is a very popular destination for Bird Watchers, Koycegiz lake is a paradise on earth with stunning geography and untouched nature also the Koycegiz Lake and Dalyan River and Delta, an important stopover on migratory routes of birds. Dalyan was declared Special Environmental Protection Area and were protected 12-kilometer-long channel is hosting a large number of species of birds. Bee Eater, Black-headed Bunting, Blue Rock Thrush, Cormorant, Crested Lark, Hooded Crow, Jay, Kentish Plover, Kingfisher, Little Owl, Long Legged Buzzard, Masked Shrike, Olivaceous Warbler, Red-backed Shrike, Roller, Rufus Bush Chat, Short Toed Eagle, Sparrow, Swallow, Tern, Turtle Dove, White Stork and Woodchat Shrike. The Dalyan river through which water circulates between the Mediterranean and Köyceğiz Lake winds its way down past the ancient Rock Tombs to the sea, via a small network of lakes and waterways. Through the rustling reed beds rising between 3 to 5 metres in height and with its mixture of fresh and salt water, these wetlands are now home to a vast number of fish and other water life. The Dalyan delta and beach area also provides a nesting habitat for both freshwater and marine turtles supporting a population of Soft-shelled Nile Turtles in the brackish waters of the Dalyan River and Köycegiz Lake,Green Turtles and the Caretta Caretta Turtle nesting on the Iztuzu beach. The length of the beach Iztuzu is about 6 km and the sand is a golden colour and also very fine. (Perhaps so Carretas prefer to lay their eggs here). Carreta caretta come to Iztuzu beach every year to lay their eggs for reproduction and for this reason it makes this beach one of the rarest in the world. It was awarded as the second beach that maintains its naturality Iztuzu is a wonder of nature and after observation of birds and the fascinating caretta caretta, you will be given approx 1 hour free time so you can have a wander around or use the time to relax on the beach with some refreshments. Once the tour has come to an end we will then take the transfer back and drop you off back to your starting points.
