Travelers staying in Dalaman are in close proximity to some of Turkey’s finest resorts like Bodrum and Marmaris where you can look forward to beautiful beaches, thriving bars and restaurants and many world-class hotels and resorts. The region is known as the Turquoise Coast in homage to its crystal-clear waters and also offers plenty of exciting outdoor activities like diving, boating and hiking.
