Iztuzu Beach is situated near Dalyan. It is a 4.5 km long beach in southwestern Turkey. The beach forms a natural barrier between the fresh water of Dalyan Delta and the Mediterranean.
Because it is one of the last nesting grounds of the endangered loggerhead turtles, it is called „Turtle Beach“, and therefore there is no construction allowed. The best time to see them is at dawn between May and September. It also rarely gets crowded, so it's picture-perfect in more ways than one.
The beach itself is a white sand beach, which makes it ideal place for sunbathing and swimming. Both ends of the beach are fully serviced with cafes and other facilities, due to the distance from the town.
