Caunos Tombs of the Kings, Marmaris

Set among the reed-lined river delta, Caunos Tombs of the Kings serves as a starting point for the exploration of Lycian rock tombs and the ruins of the port of the ancient trading city Caunos. Carved high above the river in the rocky cliff stand the windswept facades of tombs dating from 400 BCE. A short boat trip across the river takes you to Caunos, a major trade port in the 5th century BCE. Miles of sandy beaches, including the famous Turtle Beach, offer sunbathing and swimming opportunities. Taste some of the local delicacies, such as blue crabs, in one of the many restaurants along the river.

  • A beautiful boat trip on the Dalyan River. We had the happiness of two adult turtles to see near Turtle Beach. Along the bank we had already spotted some little ones. On the way there is a halt to the mud baths. But the highlight is the king's graves where the captain has stopped for the photos. The whole day of beautiful views enjoyed, highly recommended! Booked via Huge Tours (Marmaris), good service and cheaper than your tour operator.

  • Well worth a visit. Lots of ancient ruins to see. Also came across wild donkeys, goats, a frog and a tortoise. Interesting journey from Dalyan on the rowing boat and farmers tractor.
  • Magnificent experience to climb up the mountain and walk through this piece of history. And a great view to say the least :)
