One boat travels over every 20mins. Family run firm. Lovely walk but must do this in the morning or late afternoon when the sun is not as hot. You can buy freshly squeezed orange juice from a man who lives over there and grows his own fruit. Lovely to see history and a recording can be bought to listen to the history of the ruins

We came there by walking (it took one hour to get in), and we crossed river by using small boat (cheaper version than whole boat trip). The walk was pleasure because of views and weather. Kaunos was a good place to stay longer. Without crowd of tourists - amazing for us !

This was a lovely relaxed boat trip on the river Dalyan. On the way we passed what now seems to be the obligatory necropoli with the tombs carved into the rock face on the way down. Prior to reaching the beach where the logger head turtles are we stopped at the boat where they have the blue crabs. You leave your order and they are cooked ready for you on your return. The beach is opposite. Unfortunately it was the wrong time to for the loggerhead turtles, but there is plenty of evidence as to where their eggs have been laid. We had a pleasant walk along the beach, a relaxing drink at the cafe and then returned to the boat where we picked up our crabs (delicious). This was followed by a relaxed cruise back upriver to our restaurant and a very pleasant lunch. Everything seems to be connected and run as a very successful cooperative.

Our 7 day tour of the Lycian coast included a boat trip on the fresh water lagoon to Iztuzu beach (turtle beach) past the huge and beautiful rock tombs of Kaunos - plenty of photo opportunities ad a great boat ride as well. The lagoon is home to the blue crab, favourite food for the Loggerhead turtles, that return each year in April to breed. The boat trip is the best way to see the Kaunos rock tombs, the lagoon, and turtle island.
