Dalaman is the first step to the Mediterranean and Aegean regions of Turkey by plane and is situated on the southwestern coast of Turkey in Mugla Province. Dalaman is known for its international airport (Dalaman Airport) which serves as a gateway to the tourists who visit this part of Turkey every year, especially for those heading to the seaside resorts to the west and east of Dalaman (Dalyan, Fethiye, Marmaris, Gocek and Koycegiz).
Dalaman is an area of natural beauty surrounded by irresistible bays, huge forests, and lakes. It is located between the sea and mountains and is rapidly becoming an area of destination rather than just a stop over on the way to some other resort towns. Recent investments in the Airport, roads and the continuous development of the area are making it more accessible.
The Dalaman River is one of the world's most popular rafting region and worths to try atleast once.
