Dalaman is a little town located at the Southeast Aegean shoreline of Turkey in the Mugla region. It is well known for
its international airport, which provides a doorway for the millions of visitors who come to visit this part of Turkey
every year, traveling to the east and west of Dalaman such as Ölüdeniz, Fethiye Marmaris, and Hisarönü. The airport
is very small compared to the other airports in Turkey. It has parking places for only 14 jet aircrafts and is served by numerous operators. Turkey Airlines offer everyday flights to Turkey's capital Istanbul. Turkey also provides seasonal foundations for other airlines particularly Freebird Airlines, Onur Air and Pegasus Airlines. A new terminal has recently been opened.
Besides its aviation activities, Dalaman also plays a host to one of the biggest open prisons where prisoners that are less dangerous are sent which is a part of their rehabilitation programme. For agriculture on the other hand, citrus mainly plays a significant role in the local economy given that it is located in a productive area at sea level.
Dalaman is a region of natural exquisiteness. It is located in a place where it connects the sea and the mountains. Dalaman is rapidly turning into a place of destination rather than a stop over on the way to another resort town. New roads and streets and the constant development of the area and recent investment to the Airport are making it more accessible.
Dalaman has rapidly changed into an asset area where several Europeans are purchasing property with their savings in Turkey. The Dalaman town now has many shops, bars, restaurants and tea gardens and all are increasing rapidly due to the investments in the area. It also has its individual enormous natural beach. Even though it is not that well known, it is still amusing and hosts plenty of wildlife. There is also an underground tunnel that links the town of Gocek and Dalaman by reducing the journey to only a 5-10 minute drive.
Do visit the Dalyan, if you ever visit Turkey. You'll enjoy seeing the Kaunos archeologists sitting and inspecting the craved tombs in the Limestone Mountain while cruising along the Dalyan River. As you reach the shore, walk on to Iztuzu beach which 6th most popular beach in the world. It is 6km long and is thrived by the sea turtles. Iztuzu beach
is a sanctuary for these sea turtles.
