We’ve been a few times and have never had a bad meal, never felt more relaxed and remain amazed at the genuine friendliness of the Turkish people.

Mud Baths
The Mud Baths are a short walk or water taxi from the centre of Dalyan. “Beauty Mud” which not only cleanses and tones the skin but is said to remedy rheumatism and has anti-ageing properties. After allowing the mud to dry, it can be removed in a natural clear water sulphur pool, at temperatures of around 40 Celsius. This leaves you refreshed and relaxed.

Thermal Springs
You can find the thermal springs next to the mud baths or for a great day out take a trip to the Sultaniye Thermal Baths. They are to the Southwest of Köycegiz lake. The water here at 40 Celsius is second to none. The water at these baths was first used in Caunon times, then by the Byzantines, who rebuilt the accommodations. The ruins of the buildings from the period are submerged beneath the waters of the lake. It is not unusual to see the Turkish elderly make pilgrimages to the baths due to the water’s curative properties in case of neuralgia, rheumatism and skin disorders of the liver, spleen and bowels.
