Cheap flights to Dalaman
The Turkish region of Dalaman is as picture-postcard-perfect as you are likely to get in the Mediterranean. Dalaman has year-round sunshine that entice tourists back again and again, and beaches and waters that are clear enough to give even the Bahamas a good run for their money. Well, it’s not called the Turquoise Coast for nothing. It’s no wonder this diverse region of Turkey has long been attracting the summer masses to its coastal resorts. Well worth a visit is the Iztuzu (Turtle) beach, just a short boat ride from Dalyan.
Escape to Akkaya, the "secret valley". Spend a superb day horse riding, canoeing or taking the boat through the gorge to the beachside cafe, where lovely refreshments await. Finish your day by dining at the superb Akkaya Garden Restaurant, where diners sit in a "nest" in the trees (Akkaya Mevki, tel: 252 697 5275).
Use the dolmus (local bus) or drive to Dalyan, from where you can take a taxi boat to Iztuzu Beach to visit the world-renowned turtle rescue centre set up by "Captain June" and see the protected nesting sites for the caretta caretta, or loggerhead turtle.
