Situated on the southwestern tip of Turkey
Dalaman is the international gateway to resorts west and east including Marmaris, Fethiye and Dalyan. The town itself is pretty spartan, so you’ll want to venture further afield.

In Marmaris, about an hour up the coast, the place to head for a hedonistic night out is the aptly named Bar Street, where over 100 bars and clubs jostle for attention and the action goes on right through ‘til 4 in the morning.
Must eat at:
The compact but friendly Ney Restaurant in the castle at Marmaris has appealing views over the marina and authentic local cuisine that won’t set you back a mint.
Must be there for:
May to October are the months when you can face the Dalaman River head on – and go rafting through a series of rapids and canyons. Find out more at the Ecoraft Cente in Akkopru.
Seek out the offices of the local state farm and you’ll find Alexandria Railway station, the materials for which were sent here by mistake in 1906. They built the station anyway, and even some track.
Get around by dolmus, 11 seater minibuses that are a feature of life in Dalaman and most of the main coastal resorts.
British citizens travelling to Turkey do need a visa, unless they are cruise ship passengers who enter the country for a day trip and return to the ship the same day. British citizens may obtain a multiple entry visitor's visa valid for 90 days at the port of entry on payment of £10 in cash.
Duty free shopping:
Although Turkey is in Europe, it is outside of the EU Value Added Tax Area so you can benefit from duty free prices on certain items purchased when travelling to Dalaman through our terminals. More information.
