- I was like a boy playing on the sea-shore, and diverting myself now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me... Isaac Newton (1642 - 1727)

Iztuzu Beach near Dalyan
Iztuzu Beach is a long beach separated from Dalyan by the reed beds that are along the river feeding into the sea from Koycegiz Lake. It is world famous as one of the rare breeding grounds for loggerhead sea turtles. (Caretta caretta) The greatest threat to the survival of the loggerhead sea turtle is on these sandy beaches where its life begins, which has triggered an international conservation effort that began in the 1990s. The effort to protect loggerhead sea turtle eggs and to assure a safe breeding ground for this endangered species has made international headlines. June Haimoff is an English environmentalist who settled in Dalyan after her retirement and launched a successful campaign for the conservation of loggerhead sea turtles. She realized that the sea turtles unique to the locality were lethally menaced by the buildings that were starting to rise like mushrooms on the beach with the development of tourism. Since then, she dedicated her efforts to assure conservation of the site as well as attracting international attention to the fate of the turtles. She relates the struggle and the victory for the preservation of these species in her book titled Kaptan June and the Turtles published in 1997. Not far away, Asi Bay is located just south of Dalyan. Day trips on boats out of Dalyan offer a day on the beach along with a barbarque. The bay has many caverns and caves, and an island where fish gather. It is a popular lay-over point for private and charter yachts plying the coastline. Asi Beach has a restaurant on the beach where you can order meals and drinks. It can also be accessed from Dalyan and this is usually by booking a jeep tour.
