Holidays in Dalaman 

Ride the rapids on a thrilling white-water raft adventure on Dalaman River, past canyons and arched Roman bridges – showing off the centuries of history in the region. In Dalaman you’re at the heart of the Turquoise Coast, and where better than to relax on a gulet (traditional wooden boat) as you explore the coastline of hidden-away coves. You’re also close to attractions including Butterfly Valley, and the crenellated walls of 16th-century Marmaris Castle overlooking the harbour. At Dalyan, enjoy laid-back beaches with views of ancient Lycian rock tombs cut into the cliff face.

30 °C

Spring and autumn, when the climate is most comfortable.

4 hours

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!

You’ll be spoilt for choice with the range of beaches around Dalaman. Maybe you fancy the broad sandy swathe of Patara, near Kalkan, backed by huge sand dunes that once covered the ruins of this ancient town. Or the small beach of Turunç, sheltered by wooded hills, and attracting local yachters. Prepare for a high-octane scene at Marmaris, its famous nightlife drawing crowds of holidaymakers to its lively resort. You’ll recognise the lagoon at Olu Deniz– Daniel Craig parachuted onto it in his Bond film Skyfall – and it looks just as dramatic in real life.

Historic and natural attractions in Dalaman are plentiful. See unspoilt rural scenery along the Lycian Way trekking route, most beautiful around Fethiye; leave the crowds behind as you greet local farmers tending to their flocks. Explore the eerie ‘ghost town’ of Kaya Köyü, near Fethiye, abandoned since the 1920s and now an open-air museum. Here you can still see the murals inside the Panayia Pyrgiotissa basilica. Immerse yourself in the sulphur-rich mud baths at Dalyan, known for their therapeutic qualities which are said to make you look younger.

Fresh seafood, grilled meat and local street food such as gözleme (filled pancakes) mean that you’ll love eating and drinking at Dalaman. You’re likely to start the day, whether at your hotel or a café, with glasses of sweet black tea (çay), fresh crusty bread, white cheese (beyaz peynir) and local honey. In the evenings, choose fine dining at plush harbour-side restaurants in Marmaris, or family-friendly beach cafés. After dinner, sip chilled Efes beer in friendly local bars in Dalyan and Fethiye, or continue your night out with expertly mixed cocktails in Marmaris.
