Iztuzu Beach 2, Dalyan

4.5
Iztuzu Beach 2 is a narrow but long stretch of sand that acts as a barrier between the Dalyan River and the Mediterranean Sea. With 4.5 km (2.79 mi) of sand, it rarely feels crowded. Often referred to as "Turtle Beach," it is a main breeding ground for these creatures, which you're sure to catch sight of. The federal government has made efforts to protect the species, leaving the area untouched and restricting public access for periods of time. While this may be frustrating for some, it is the reason the beach has retained its original beauty. That said, check ahead to make sure it's open to the public during your stay. Put Iztuzu Beach 2 on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Dalyan journey planner.

  • We're now living in Dalyan and are lucky enough to visit the beach most weeks with our friends who have a car. It's breathtaking and some days we are the only people there. We must keep this place...  more »
  • Huge beach, good facilities. There is a turtle hospital here which is interesting to visit. The nesting area is very interesting and on our last visit here we found ourselves swimming with a turtle!  more »
