Overview

Dalaman, on Turkey's Turquoise Coast, is a diverse holiday destination with a range of beautiful Blue Flag beaches, lots of historical sites, lively nightlife areas, and a plethora of Instagrammable natural beauty spots. No wonder it’s been attracting visitors since ancient times!

 

The coastline is a mixture of secluded mountain-backed coves, bays and long stretches of fine sand. The famous Blue Lagoon in Olu Deniz must be one of the most beautiful spots in the whole of Europe. Holidays in Dalaman are more than just a fly and flop beach affair though, it’s a great base from which to explore the fascinating history of the area, such as the ancient city of Kaunos, Fethiye’s Lycian Rock Tombs and the Ancient City of Tlos. A little further away but easily reachable is Ephesus, the second largest city of the ancient Mediterranean, which served as a bridge between the East and West for centuries. Here you will find one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Temple of Artemis. 

 

If you’re looking for a memorable family or luxury holiday, Dalaman should be at the top of your list.

Essential Information

Getting Around

The Dalaman area of Turkey is one of the most popular spots for a holiday and so it’s easy to get around with the various modes of public transport available. Dolmus minibuses run within and between the various resorts, and buses also connect places further afield. Taxis are plentiful around the clock, and you should be able to walk to most places within your resort. Car hire is readily available, too.


Travelling by bus or car

The network of shared minibuses (dolmuses) that operates in Dalaman is excellent, with fixed routes. There is also a local bus service if you wish to venture a little further. Travel is brilliant value for money.


Car hire is available, both at the airport and within resorts, and is a great way of exploring if you like to have that freedom. Remember to be extra-vigilant on the roads though, and stick to the right hand side.


Passports and Visas

Apply for a visa online to save the hassle when you’re at the airport. This can be done via the e-Visa website, and costs $20. Passports should have at least 6 months validity. For more information and advice, visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/turkey/entry-requirements or theForeign Office at www.fco.gov.uk/en/


Health and Safety

Comprehensive travel insurance is an absolute must if you’re going on holiday abroad, so make sure you invest in appropriate cover. For more info, see www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/turkey/health


Vaccinations

There shouldn’t be any need for extra vaccinations to enjoy a holiday in Turkey, but it’s recommended that you see your doctor for the latest medical advice before you go.
