Ölüdeniz is a tourism icon of Turkey. Head off on a scenic drive, passing the lovely Lake Köyceğiz, to the ancient city of Caunos. En route, take in a range of historic sights, from city walls and rock-cut tombs dating to the first millennium B.C., to one of Anatolia’s best-preserved Byzantine basilicas.
Explore the evocative ruins of Tlos, formerly the most powerful city of the ancient region of Lycia. Today, you can see what's left of its 3,000-capacity Roman stadium, the temple honouring Kronos and Lycian sarcophagi.
Marvel at the lovely beach of İz Tuzu to the west of Göcek, a pine-fringed spot also known as Turtle Beach. It’s a nesting site for loggerhead turtles who lay their eggs here between May and August; hatching lasts from July to September.
