The Turquoise Coast Sights


  • Archaeological Site/Ruins

Fodor's Review

The ancient ruins at Kaunos can be reached in 15 to 30 minutes by boat from Dalyan; alternately, you can find the geçit (a rowboat crossing), and then walk south for 30 minutes. Up from the port is the agora, which has a restored fountain house and a ruined portico dotted with the foundation of statues. An old Roman street takes you up the hill, past the nice temple terrace, to a crumbling Byzantine basilica, a massive Roman bath, and a well-preserved semicircular

theater that is cut into the hillside in the Greek style. Most of the remains date from the 4th century BC, and reflect a blend of Carian and Lycian influences. From the ruins there is a pretty clifftop walk to Ekincik, which takes three to four hours with the possibility of returning by boat.
