Help locating a mystery beach in Dalyan (Or there abouts)

Hi everyone,

I will be visiting Kalkan in Turkey in just over a week for a fortnight.

I have come accross and image of a beach there that I really want to spend a day at but cannot find ANY information about it, what it's called, where it is...anything! I've been searching for quite some time and this is my last resort as i'm coming up blank!

All I know is that it appears in a walking guide book called "kas to dalyan" and there is only one image of it. Can someone put me out of my misery? haha!

It's on the following website, over to the left, underneath the image of the book cover there are three small images you can click on. It's the one on the right with the sweeping beach and lake behind it.

Many thanks in advance,

A very frustrated Ouch110

I could be wrong it looks like The Blue Lagoon at Olu Deniz

I think the beach shown is the Blue Lagoon which is at Olu Deniz. Approximately midway between Kalkan and Dalyan.

Its on the front cover of my copy of said book and is definitely Olu Deniz.

The beach itself (apart from being extremely busy) is, from what I recall very shingly.

Patara and Iztuzu are far more appealing (in my opinion)

Wow you guys are quick! And so right! Thank you so much for your speedy responses. Right..gotta add that to my itinerary.

I will be visiting Patara for sure as it is closer to Kalkan I think, which is where I'm staying.

Again,

Thanks so much!

We visited Patara last year, stayed in the village for a couple of nights (was very quiet). The beach is stunning and the archealogical site on the road to the beach is well worth a visit. It is close to Kalkan.

I looked at the satellite image if blue lagoon and saw the hundreds of loungers crammed in like sardines all around that little peninsular. It has put me off a bit I must say.

Hmmm...

Shorty, I know what you mean, I'm not impressed with the beach itself, but if you walk from Fethiye over the mountains to Olu Deniz the view is spectacular. I guess that to get the whole lagoon on one shot, it's taken from either a plane or micro light.

Many images are taken by the paragliders as they jump off Babadag mountain :-)
