Day Trip to Dalyan
« on: January 28, 2008, 10:16:32 AM »
Hi All
Can anyone tell me what is  the best way to do Dalyan for a day trip (assuming it is close enough to do in a day) - We would like to visit Iztuzu beach, See the rock tombs and do the mud bath -
Thanks
BF

Personally I would say that it''s too far to go for a day trip and to do what you want to do & see, you wouldn''t get the chance to appreciate the place.  The river trip is too good to rush and as for the mud bath, well it takes ages to get it all off again.  But well worth the visit.  Enjoy

we did this by going the day before we left for our flight home....it''s not far from Dalaman airport,we booked into a hotel when we got there for the night and were right by the airport for our trip home...we did the beach and the river trip and lunch in a riverside restaurant all at a nice pace..... what about doing that? ;)

Thanks for the feedback
Good Idea BL but unfortunately we do not have a car (our trip includes transfers) Doooh!
Do you know if it is possible to hire a car in Kalkan and drop it off at the Airport ?
Maybe next time I will have a week at Dalyan then a week at Kalkan - Still, it''s a good excuse for another holiday 8)

Hey bluefudge you can hire in Kalkan and drop off at Dalaman.  Adda Tours (the car hire/transfer company EK recommends) do this.  Though I wouldn''t try booking it online, just call into the office when you''re there to arrange.

You can book this online with EK either through the website or by emailing bookings@enjoykalkan.com to get your discount!
The hire car and transfer sections are undergoing a bit of a makeover as we speak :)

This could be turning into a plan -  ;D
My Flight is at an unearthly hour of the morning so I would still only have one full day but would not be driving back. How long does it take to drive from Kalkan to Dalyan
And any recommended hotels for a one night stay in or around Dalyan  (well not even one night , the flight is at 5.00 boo! )
Thanks all

about 20/25 mins if i remember rightly ...30 probably if you don''t know the way.I believe we stayed at the Binlik.Dalyan has plenty of hotels /pensions..depends if you would swap the ease of organised transfer you have booked and a day in Kalkan....or a mini adventure?..........mmmmm thats a difficult one!!  ::)

Thanks BL -I''m always up for the adventure (albeit mini) but now I just need to convince Mrs BF  - And that could be trickier than a tricky thing on national tricky day.   :D

I would definitely recommend the Assyrian Hotel in Dalyan, we have stayed there.  They have a good website www.asurotel.com and you can book on line.

BF - I think blue lizard meant that the journey from Dalaman to Dalyan was approx 30mins, so the journey from Kalkan to Dalyan would be approx 2hrs - Kalkan to Dalaman 1 1/2 hrs then onwards.

Anyway which ever way you do it, its worth the trip, the area is stunning in different ways. Happy planning.

Should take 1.5- 2 hours to drive to Dalyan, you could speak with whoever does you transfer and it may be that they could do your transfer to Dalyan for a little extra, then you could book another from Dalyan to Dalaman which should cost about £27 on your return. You can pick up a little putt putt boat from Dalyan centre to do the rock tombs, mud bath, beach - as a day trip.

quite right...i meant from Dalaman to to Dalyan was 30 mins..didn''t read the thread right  ::)i wish it was only 30 mins transfer time from the airport to Kalkan!!!!..when you are on a boat along the river you may see turtles ,we did.They may also tell you it was where the film "The African Queen" was filmed(Humphrey Bogart)...but i am scepticle about this ...just as i am that Cleopatra went to just about everwhere that has a waterway!!! Blimey she must have had a speed boat! :o

Those leeches must''ve got to you Blue Lizard, you''re muddling your Hepburns! It was Katharine Hepburn who starred along with Humphrey Bogart n the "African Queen".
