Kaunos - Review
What existed approximately from 400BC was recognized as Kaunos in the 9th century at the border Lycia. The beautiful historic area is home to ancient ruins with a very well maintained theatre, buildings and mosaic. The historic site can be reached by boat and a short trek up the hill. Do visit this spot to get insights of the long lost past of the city.

Kaunos, Dalyan Reviews
Beautiful and historically significant ruins just across the river from Dalyan. If you are up to I recommend walking to the top of the hill behind the ampitheatre, you get fabulous views of the ruins, Dalyan and the river delta. Not much shade so it can get very hot in the summer months. My favourite time to visit is May I think. Have visited in July and did find it rather hot. Mid September and October are cooler so make a good time to visit. In addition to the ruins to look at there is plenty of wildlife to see if you keep your eyes peeled.
Well worth a few hours of your time. 5 tl to get there by a tractor towed charabanc type thing; well worth avoiding the long walk up the hill! There are a few explanatory notices dotted around in Turkish and English, which are useful. The old auditorium is spectacular!
Kind of a unique antique city positioned on a heavenly hill that has wonderful view basically from all 360 degrees. We took small rowing boats operated by local women to cross the river and decided to walk up to the hill for about 25 minutes. Kind of a challenge to say the least in hot weather. But what we got in the end exceeded our expectations. Not many people around. You'll need more than 3 hours to see it all. Bring food and drink on your own as the muze cafe is a total rip off, they are selling a small bottle of water for 5 TL now (2018), it's priced in 0.5 TL in markets like SOK.
Excellent site. They are slowly working on uncovering more of the site. Very interesting and informative
Thernal dpring and mud baths, really theraputic and left my skin really soft. This was completely natural ulike some that are manmade.
