Iztuzu Beach

Iztuzu Beach Dalyan Turkey

12 Km from the centre of Dalyan lies the five km long sandbar that juts out from the main land into the Mediterranean. This site was earmarked for development until it was brought to the authorities attention that it was one of the last nesting grounds for the endangered Loggerhead Turtle. A campaign with David Bellamy and a local woman Kaptan June (Haimhoff) were successful in stopping the development of Iztuzu Beach.

Visiting times to the beach are restricted from May – September when the Turtles are nesting. From 08.00-18.00 are the open times so as not to interfere with the nesting habits of these Turtles.

Sunbeds and shade are available at the beach for a small charge also cold drinks and snacks are served throughout the day. You can reach Iztuzu by Boat or Dolmus, the boat winds its way down the channel, through the rustling reeds to the open tip of the beach.

The Dolmus travels lakeside through beautiful winding roads down to the Beach, this takes around 20 minutes, the boat will take approximately 40 minutes. Both ways are worth seeing, each for a small charge.
