Paragliding and air sports in Dalyan
The pretty riverbank town of Dalyan, 27 km (17 miles) west of Dalaman Airport (map), is quite different from other resort towns on Turkey's Mediterranean coast. People come for its setting on the placid Dalyan Çayı (Dalyan Creek), for the dramatic Lycian tombs hewn into the rockfaces that dominate the town on the west bank of the river, for the ruins of ancient Roman city of Caunos, and for broad İztuzu Beach, a natural nesting-ground for carretta carretta (loggerhead turtles).
Sitting on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast is Dalyan, a little fishing village popular for its relaxed, traditional charm. Surrounded by unspoilt greenery and inspiring scenery and cut gently in two by a wandering river, holidays to Dalyan are perfect if you like your downtime to be low-key, laid back and leisurely. If you simply can’t have a holiday without a beach, then don’t worry because there are some beautiful soft sandy spots just a short trip away. Join the locals and jump into a water-taxi, which will take you on a laid-back cruise to the mouth of the estuary. The entire stretch is protected, partly due to the presence of the nesting Loggerhead Turtles that have made their home on Iztuzu Beach. However, there’s much more to this part of Turkey than meets the eye, and it also houses some of the region’s treasures including the 9th century remains of Caunus.
Paragliding is an adventure sport that captures the wind and take you soaring above the ground to gain a 360 degree view of the mountains and sky. See best deals in Dalyan

“This was an unforgettable experience. You get a really nice overview of the city and all the pilots are so kind. I did it with 3 friends and a nice little detail is you get walkie talkies to talk to each other while paragliding which we found very cool. It’s more than worth the price!!” – Jolan L.
“I had a wonderful experience with Marcos and his staff. Marcos arranged for round trip transportation from Lara Beach to the take off area. Weather could not have been better. Davut, the pilot, was extremely confident and experienced. I felt very safe with him flying. The moment of take off is simply breathtaking. If you are going to try paragliding once, do it in Dalyan, can’t beat the scenery.” – Magda C
