Ilıca & Sultaniye

The Sultaniye Thermal baths are to the south west of Koycegiz Lake, ten minutes up-river by boat from Dalyan. The water at these baths was used in Kaunos times, and then by the Byzantines, who rebuilt the accommodation. The ruins of the buildings from that period are submerged beneath the waters of Koycegiz Lake. This series of open-air mud baths, and sulphur pools reaching temperatures of 40 degrees centigrade, are claimed to increase male potency and to cure rheumatism, skin conditions and gynaecological problems. The mud found in these mud baths is also said to be “beauty mud” and not only cleanses and tones the skin but is meant to have anti-ageing properties to. After allowing the mud to dry, it can be removed in a natural clear water sulphur pool or also by taking a swim in the cool waters of Koycegiz Lake. This experience leaves you refreshed and relaxed and, if you can bear the smell of the sulphur water is a good place to start the holiday off leaving a good base for the tan to follow. Definitely not an outing to miss.

Note: After swimming in the sulphur pools or wallowing in the mud, your body will be stripped of natural oils including any suntan lotion previously applied. The sun is attracted to the sulphur, so please take care to re­apply sun protection creams immediately.

There are over 140 eateries in the town ranging from small, simple lokantas to riverside restaurants with a la carte menus. Equally delicious and certainly worth a try are the more typical and traditional flavoured soups which are served sitting on floor cushions and kilims at street side lokantas and usually culminate in a glass of Turkish tea or cay at the end of the meal. The town is small and compact so you can stroll, taking your time to choose as the waiters try to tempt you into their kitchens. Fish lovers will enjoy the wide range of seafood and fresh fish served at many restaurants and be sure to try the blue crab which is a local speciality. Don’t forget to try out the pastane or pastry shop specialising in puddings and tarts.

The weekly market is on a Saturday (8am-5pm and is situated opposite the mosque) with nearby Koycegiz having its own market on a Monday. To go to Koycegiz market, take one of the local co-operative water taxis, leaving around 10:30.
