Koycegiz

Possessing the most special gifts of nature and history, Köycegiz stands beside the same named lake a tip of which touches the Mediterranean. Now a nature and wild life preserve, this site is a real paradise with its rare and beautiful setting, and with a history going back to 3500 BC. It is possible to cruise over the natural labyrinth-like channel, walled with reeds, that link sea and Lake Koycegiz, which is described as "smooth as glass" till noon and suitable for wind-surfing in the afternoon; it contains almost every kind of seafood including carp and crab, Dalyan can be reached at the end of a road decorated with scented frankincense trees. The Dalyan Delta is a unique site, lying peacefully with its golden beach. Sea turtles of Caretta, and blue crabs live here making the area more attractive.

On the other side of the channel is the marvelous view of the ancient city Caunos, which was situated on the border between Caria and Lycia and a most important sea-port. The first sight here, is the unique and fascinating tombs carved into the rock and overlooking the waterway. Also of interest in this district is the acropolis lying a litte inland, together with a Roman temple, antique theatre, Ibrab and Susandaa castles.

The Dalyan region is not the last site in Köycegiz to offer natural beauty. The Gulf of Gocek, with its many bays facing numerous islets is another spot. Holding a lovely marina, it constitutes a perfect center for sailing, and here there are also the ruins of the ancient city of Arymaxa, furnishing a different scenery.

Ekincik is another stopover for yachts, and the right place for those who wish to rest in the relaxing atmosphere of unspoiled bays. Sangerme, near the international airport of Dalaman, is still another point of attraction, and constitutes one of the nicest holiday villages of Köycegiz, with its fine beaches with neighboring pine forests

Sultaniye Thermal Springs (on the south side of the lake) are one of the most important spa waters in Europe and the world, for its higher mineral content, and rich radioactivity.

Kulak, Gedova and Yuvarlak Cayi are naturally attractive places with picnicking and camping facilities.
