First we visit SULTANİYE SPA and mud baths in the lake. The oldest and best in the region. Mud and sulfur springs with an ideal temperature and mineralist composition have been serving as repellent (cut ten years from our ages!), Beautifying (women do not need any!) And therapeutic natural agents for thousands of years. After lunch in our restaurant on the water front of the village, this time especially BC. We go down the river along the ancient city CAUNOS, famous for the Ionic temple-like tombs of Lycian style kings dating back to the 7th century. . Then it's time to swim at DALYAN TURTLE BEACH, which is listed as one of the best in the world.
