Iztuzu Beach


İztuzu beach is spectacular with its crystal clear turquoise waters, and fine golden sands- home to the rare and endangered Caretta Caretta turtle, who return year after year to lay their eggs in the sand. İztuzu beach is designated a conservation area, and has won the award for protecting the nature and environment.

It has been stated that there is no other place in the world where fresh water lake merges with the Mediterranean sea. The fine golden sand beach starts at the base of mountains and extends 8 km to the mouth of the Dalyan delta. Iztuzu was once the harbour to the ancient city of Caunos where salt, salted fish and slaves were sold.
