Dalyan Spa Retreat
Monday 27th Sept – Monday 4th October 2021
I love this area so much, so when Free Spirit told me that they have found this brand new gem of a venue, I immediately booked to return with a retreat group!
Lots more info about the hotel and cost will be available soon, watch this space.
Dalyan village is situated on the small river that joins the lake to the sea You can also reach Iztutu beach by taking one of the many riverboats from the village. Iztutu beach is vast, very beautiful and completely unspoilt by tourism as it is within a national park. There are no buildings other than a cafe at each end with changing huts and sunbeds, it is a conservation area with extremely strict access rules to protect the turtles which nest there.
Besides visiting the beach we can also arrange a variety of trips.
There are hot springs, mud baths and a huge lake to explore – its a very beautiful region.
A fantastic day out is the Twelve Island Boat Trip, some pictures of this excursion are in the carousal above.
On Saturday mornings there is a large market in Dalyan village selling local produce, spices, fabrics etc.
We can also arrange boat trips with barbeque lunches and a visit to a very old Haman (Turkish bath).
If you are interested in history there is the ancient city of Kaunas on the other side of the river or travel further afield to the Ghost Town at Kayaköy which is exactly as it was when the Greeks left Turkey to return to Greece.
Yoga takes place twice daily in a purpose built yoga shala – more info coming soon.
