You can view the Tombs from the all along the Dalyan harbour but there a couple of spots to get a really great view!

There is a simple but lovely cafe in the park, Kaunos Çay Bahçesi where you can enjoy a drink and a snack whilst admiring the amazing view. Don't forget to also look in the river as you will definitely see lots of fish and possibly a turtle or two.

Just before the park there are also small row boats, which you can use to travel to "The other side". These cost 5L per person for a return trip, normally rowed by a local women. On the other side I would highly recommend a pancake from the cafe as you step off the boat with a cold drink in the shade of their garden. Afterwards take a short walk along the road to the Kaunos ruins and you will pass a grave yard which is peaceful and offers spectacular closer views of the Tombs above.

Had a great day out at the beach and on the private boat. Utterly breath taking! So much history and interesting facts well worth it.

Don't miss the opportunity t see these anent tombs if yare in Dalyan. Truly breath-taking to see and steeped in history, built by hand into the rocks. We went on the river cruisers so saw the tombs, trues swimming and ended width an afternoon at the beach, a great day out.

.....of Marmaris. Lovely boat trip from Marmaris to this venue. We transferred from large boat consisting of 3 floors to a small river boat to view the tombs from the river. Boat pilot allows opportunity to take some photos of this amazing BC site. Worth the travelling time. If you're lucky you'll also see a turtle or two poking their heads from the water to take a breath. Stunning tombs and tour guide gave a very interesting talk on the history of these magnificent sculptures.
