It also boasts a large and impressive marina. Overnight onboard.(D)  
Day 02: Sunday / Tuesday Ekincik Gulf / Dalyan.

The first stop is Caretta-Caretta (turtle) beach, where you can swim and enjoy the beautiful scenery. You will then sail along the delta in the river boat to see the ancient Rock Tombs, before arriving at the mud baths which will both relax and rejuvenate you!

For lunch and a swimming break we will then head to Manast?r Bay: this is also known as Cleopatra Bay or Sunken Bath Bay due to the beautiful underwater ruins of a bath that have been found here.

It is believed that the city's name came from Apollon's son Telmessos. As the name suggests, the city was the city of light and was famous for its prophets.
