Turtle beach is like no other beach I've visited. Arriving via the 30 minutes water taxis from dalyan. No roads leading to the beach it is a spit of sand with river one side and beautiful warm sea other. Along the beach are placed wire cages to protect the number of turtle eggs that have been laid along the beach.... More

We have been to Iztuzu beach for over 15 years, unfortunately this time as we had our usual walk along the beach instead of watching the crabs rush back into their homes and collecting shells, we encountered faeces, continued walking and encountered more and yet more. We were extremely upset as we have never had this here before. We left... More

Idyllic blue sea and empty at this time of year. Lovely beach cafe fab waffles. Umbrellas and beds for only 10 lira or just lie on sand.

Iz tuzu Beach. There are not many beaches that can compare to this area it's natural unspoilt location. You can choose to take a private or public transport boat that meanders down the river past the tombs, you might get a glimpse of the Nile turtle that lives in the river. Beautiful scenery. Closer to the sea the sea turtle... More

From our hotel we start biking. and it was very good adventure. You need to be fit because you are going to climb before you reach the beach. they have a nice restaurant owned by municipal so the prices are good. and you can also travel there with boats.

Get the bus from the centre of Captain to the beach, be sure to visit the turtle hospital when you get off the bus, then have a lovely walk right along the beach, then a drink at the café before getting a water taxi back to Captain, a superb day out.
