Dalyan is a town in the southern Mugla province of Turkey, located between the famous regions of Marmaris and Fethiye. One of the most distinctive features of the town of Dalyan is its location on the Dalyan Channel which carries water between the Mediterranean and Koycegiz Lake.

The area is rich in wildlife and natural beauty and achieved some fame during the 1980s when a luxury hotel complex was proposed on the nearby Iztuzu Beach. The resulting hullaballoo became something of a cause celebre and involved David Bellamy and Prince Philip as champions for the conservation of the area. In the end the proposed development was stopped and the area was declared a protected site and became the Köyceğiz-Dalyan Special Environmental Protection Area.

There are many boats that cruise up and down the waterway and these have become the transportation method of choice for those wishing to explore local sites of interest.
