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.

  • We went an hour before the entrance closes at 5pm, and had the whole area to ourselves. Really magical to wander around the town and theatre ruins. Heading down to the Lake of Leeches you find yourself imagining the hustle and bustle of the ancient port settlement. Tip: Drive into the area from the northern mountain roads for a beautiful ride into the area. Take a picnic or head to Dalyan afterwards at sunset to dine by the river.

  • Ruins are well documented with plenty of informative notices. Brilliant amphitheatre. Reasonable prices entrance fee of 10tL and a reasonably priced who selling cold and hot drinks etc.

  • Worth a visit as part of a bigger trip but not on its own. Some beautiful views but not a well maintained site.

  • Worth a visit as part of the boat trip round various places. Highlight was wild donkeys came to see what the noise was when a group of school children arrived!!
