African Queen

Film "The African Queen" in Dalyan TurkeyFilm "The African Queen"

In Dalyan you will see rows of 'African Queen' boats along the river bank. Days in Dalyan follow a relaxing regime. After a leisurely breakfast, you choose your 'African Queen' boat for the 30 minute voyage through the reed beds that were used to film the famous scenes in Houston's film  The African Queen. For half an hour you can pretend to be Humphrey Bogart or Katharine Hepburn, on the way to a spit of golden sand were turtles have laid their eggs for millions of years. The beach is best enjoyed in the morning and evening because by midday the day trippers from Marmaris arrive. So you can return to Dalyan ask your boatman to drop you off so you can walk through the splendid ruins of the Lycian city of Caunus. When the day trippers have returned to their Benidorm-like resorts, you have Dalyan for yourself and you can dine al fresco in the restaurants along the riverbank. For the adventurous in spring and autumn, there is exciting white water rafting and canoeing down the torrents in the mountains. For 'Twitchers', the river valley is a veritable Mecca with hundreds of different species to be sighted. Upstream from the village, are the mud baths. A little further is a splendid bath-house with warm thermal springs on the shores of the large crystal clear Lake Koycegiz.
