Please visit the beautiful,
5km (two and a half miles) strand of golden brown sand called Iztuzu Beach
or better known as Turtle Beach. The beach can be reached by road or even
better by sailing down to the beautiful turquoise sea of Turtle Beach on
the river from the gorgeous river frontage at Dalyan.
The beach is famous as a breeding ground for the loggerhead turtle. These
giants of the sea lumber ashore on summer nights to lay their eggs in the
sand. Turtle beach hit the headlines in 1987 when the foundations for a
luxury hotel were laid at the south end of the beach. There was a storm
of protest from conservationists throughout the world (including Britons
David Bellamy), backed by public opinion the Turkish government scrapped
the project and declared the beach a protected area for ever more.
