Must see · Beach · Nature / Park
Iztuzu Beach 2 is a narrow but long stretch of sand that acts as a barrier between the Dalyan River and the Mediterranean Sea. With 4.5 km (2.79 mi) of sand, it rarely feels crowded. Often referred to as "Turtle Beach," it is a main breeding ground for these creatures, which you're sure to catch sight of. The federal government has made efforts to protect the species, leaving the area untouched and restricting public access for periods of time. While this may be frustrating for some, it is the reason the beach has retained its original beauty. That said, check ahead to make sure it's open to the public during your stay.

  • Such a lovely beach, well worthy of a visit. You'll be hard pushed to beat this place. 15 lira to park a car or get the public bus or boat, about a pound each
  • This is a nice long beach, there are plenty of sun beds to be hired at a reasonable price. The beach is big enough not to be too crowded and there's plenty of space for everyone. There are free public toilets and access to snacks and meals at 2 different cafes. Prices at these are reasonable and service is good. The beach is famous for the turtles that nest and hatch here, we came out of season the for the nesting but you can see the turtles in the bay in their natural environment
