Dalaman is your base for a diverse coastal region. Want to paraglide off a mountain onto a picture-perfect lagoon? Head to Olu Deniz. If you have your kids in tow, they’ll love the mud baths and thermal springs at Dalyan. Or maybe you want to relax by the marina at Dalaman and spot caretta caretta turtles. And not forgetting, of course, scenic sandy beaches surrounded by pine-covered hills in Icmeler and Kalkan.

Dalaman lies right in the middle of the Turquoise Coast. A short ride east, friendly Fethiye sits in an idyllic harbour where you can enjoy a relaxed beach holiday. You’re also near Olu Deniz lagoon – a magnet for once-in-a-lifetime paragliding onto one of Turkey’s most stunning beaches. For a Dalaman holiday that's buzzing with nightlife, stay in Marmaris where the party is centred on Bar Street. Choose a hotel in the pretty riverbank town of Dalyan to see the dramatic Lycian tombs on the cliff face, and have fun splashing around in the therapeutic mud baths – the kids will have a whale of a time!



Icmeler has blossomed into one of the liveliest well-planned resorts. With a charming beach, contrasting sharply with the backdrop of green mountains rising behind the resort, evenings offer a range of restaurants, bars and discos. From your Içmeler hotel you can explore the coastal scenery by boat or take a short excursion to Cleopatra Island.



Marmaris is large and lively, with vibrant nightlife. Divided into three main areas, there's the harbour with Turkey's largest marina and main nightlife hub, the Old Town with small bazaars and the tourist area to the west. Hotels in Marmaris are handy for the narrow ‘Bar Street’ with its open-air live music venues.
