We hired a boat for our family of four for the day. It costs around 25 GBP per person including a barbecue lunch on the lake. We spent a couple of hours moored in a lovely quiet spot swimming in the warm lake and had an amazing lunch of salads and assorted barbecued meats. Drinks weren't included although the boat... More

Every time we visit the area we love to go to this lake. There are plenty of eating places by the lake protected from the sun. We spend literally hours just sitting, eating, drinking and enjoying the view. For us it is always a must, as it is so well worth return visit after return visit.

Koycegiz is at the head of the lake of the same name. It is a pleasant place which bustles on Monday when the weekly market is held. Boats with tourists even come across the lake to visit the market from Dalyan. There are a number of cafe/restaurants along the top of the lake where you can spend a pleasant hour... More

This lake is so beautiful and so big. It's view is gorgeous from the road to Ekincik Beach. You should visit it if you're around.

Yet gain we did the boat trips to the Monday market and also the moonlight cruise. The lake is in a wonderful setting surrounded by hills and at night the stars are amazing. Unfortunately both these trips stop off at the mud baths and if you have done this before it can be quite boring. I will definitely do again... More

We took this private river cruise and were not disappointed. It took about 4 hours and cost 250TL (lunch & entry fees not included). We went to the mud baths and thermal pools at Sultaniye for about 1 hour and then to Iztuzu beach for an hour. All in all it was a lovely day on the lake and river... More
