Dalaman is a district in the southwest of Turkey, a transcontinental nation which sits at the crossroads between southeast Europe and western Asia. Turkey is one of the oldest continuously-inhabited countries in the world, with a history which stretches back all the way to the Palaeolithic Age! Holidays to Turkey combine endless sunshine with incredible beaches, modern and luxuriant facilities and a heap of activities to suit every single member of the family – and nowhere is this more apparent than the stunning Dalaman district.
Dalaman has been one of the most sought-after tourist destinations in Turkey for the better part of two millennia – even the ancient Greeks were partial to the legendary Turquoise Coast! Dalaman is undoubtedly most famous for this stretch of shoreline, an unbroken chain of gorgeous Blue Flag beaches, picturesque coves and tranquil bays which stretch on for an awe-inspiring 8000-kilometres. A glut of resort towns have sprung up to take advantage of the so-called ‘Turkish Riviera’, with standouts which include the gorgeously scenic Icmeler, as well as Olu Deniz – the home of the legendary Blue Lagoon!
