    Iztuzu beach.

    by Tdiver Written Aug 29, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Fancy a day on the beach, where you may see a turtle.
    Boats cost 5Ytl for the round trip and then sun beds and shades are extra too.
    Take plenty of water with you.
    Good photo opportunities as you travel down the river.

    Strolling along the Lakeside

    by kentishgirl Written Jan 10, 2007


    Actually I took this photo when I was sitting enjoying dinner at one of the small cheap cafes along the lake.
    Its so beautiful to walk along as the sun is setting, or just sit and enjoy a cool Efes!

    Iztuzu Beach AKA Turtle Beach

    by kentishgirl Written Jan 10, 2007


    Known more locally as Turtle Beach as this is where they nest at certain times of the year.
    When we were there this wasnt that time of year, but we enjoyed the beach all the same.

    Its a wide sandy beach, with the sea on one side and a small lagoon on the other, there are places to buy drinks and snacks too. It was very nice but incredibly crowded.

    Lycian Tombs

    by kentishgirl Written Jan 10, 2007


    When you take the brilliant day boat along to Dalyan you will pass these spectacular Lycian Tombs set high up in mountains.
    They are totally amazing and extremely easy to spot from Koycegiz Lake.

    Dalyan Mud Baths

    by kentishgirl Written Jan 10, 2007


    Ok, not strictly in Koycegiz, but nearby. And as a visitor to Koycegiz you will almost certainly go down the lake on a boat trip to Dalyan.
    The Mud Baths stink real bad! But they are a great way to spend an afternoon - we rolled around like pigs in the mud, there are instructions on how to get covered in mud, let it dry and wash it off.

    The mud is so full of minerals that my skin felt fabulous when I got out. The baths are real hot - so be careful!

    I ruined my swimsuit in there too, so make sure that you wear an old one or one you dont mind being destroyed!

    Koycegiz Lake

    by kentishgirl Written Jan 10, 2007


    The Lake dominates the town. We enjoyed walks along the Lakeside (day and night), chilling on the little beaches that are around the lake.

    In the evening it takes on a whole new perspective, restaurants set up seating areas and tables along the lakeside and everyone sits along the lake eating by moonlight and candlelight.
