The tombs sculpted from the rock face of the cliff across the river from Dalyan are from the days of the Lykians about 2400 years ago. They are literally a trademark of the holiday resort of Dalyan, Turkey. They are lit at night and make...More

Extraordinarily rock tombs which can be viewed from dalyan or the river. We also had a great view from the road to kaunos which is as close as you can get. Unfortunately it looks like you could get nearer as there is a path and...More

You can see these during the day on a river taxi or from the river bank. At night they are lit up for all to see.

Easy to see from the river boats as you make your way to and from the beach. Your guide or skipper will usually pause for you to take a photograph, you may even get an impromptu history lesson.

Absolutely stunning. How lovely it is to sit on the riverside and look at these tombs and watching the boats go up and down the river.

your best view of the tombs is from ine of the many boat trips from Dalyan. you will be treated to an explanation of who formed them and why they were made. It is quite interesting.

It was fantastic to watch the archaeological sight while taking a river boat trip. The trip is for about 30 minutes one way, and because of the meandering shape of the river, you got different angles of the old tomb, near and far. The tombs...More

Can see tombs from Dalyan riverside, and are especially beautiful when lit up late at night. Although we were warned not to climb up them!

You can only see these tombs from the river, I believe...you can't get much closer. Boats from Dalyman past the tombs are every 10 minutes or so, and will stop by the tombs for photos before continuing to the beach.

Not sure if the new tourist site is open yet. You can view from Dalyan or from the riverside. Buggy would probably be a no im afraid. Check out on google. Dalyan and Lycian Rock Tombs.
