Things to Do in Dalaman

An underrated area of Turkey that most definitely shouldn’t be overlooked, the Dalaman region is equally as exciting as it is beautiful. The bright-blue coastline has earned the right to be aptly nicknamed the Turquoise Coast, home to exceptionally beautiful beaches that are a dream for sunbathing, swimming and watersports. The Blue Lagoon in Olu Deniz is a must-visit; a natural cove and protected national park with clear waters and stunning sands.

If you’re looking for a lively night out after the sun dips into the mountains, you can’t go wrong with the bars and clubs of Hisarönü. Cabaret is a popular pastime here so expect raucous show tunes to spill out of the doors, entertaining drag artists and plenty of drinks and laughter until the sun comes up once again.

There are plenty of daytime activities to keep you occupied in the Dalaman region. Marmaris is the place to go for some authentic Turkish retail therapy – think colourful bazaars, haggling vendors and a range of knick-knacks and souvenirs for you to take home. The Kayaköy Ghost Town is another must-visit; an ancient and now empty village in the Taurus Mountains that has been deserted since the 1920s, due to the violence and retribution between the Greeks and the Turks following the collapse of the Ottoman Empire.
