A very popular journey among the tourists is Caunos. It combines cultural and ruins sightseeing with entertainment. That assures no one will get bored during it. The journey includes an ancient King Tombs, Mud Baths, Reed-lined river, miles of sandy beach and the famous Carretta Carretta sea turtles.
Moreover this excursion has another advantage-it’s only one day. You are going from 10 AM to 6-7 PM. Also the price is very reasonable; infants under6 are for free, the children and teenagers pay 10 pounds and the adults 20.
The whole journey starts with a boat trip to Caunos. You will be on the boat about hour and a half and during that time you can take a sunbath (there are enough sun beds for everyone) or have a snack as there’s a food included in the package as well as drinks. The time on the boat is passing in a blink of an eye, it’s so much fun so don’t bother about the travel could be boring, it won’t. You will be at your destination at around noon so you may want to have a lunch on the boat. Then you will be moved to a smaller boats and take upstream of the river Dalyan. You will be around 15 minutes on the boat before reaching the King rock Tombs from 4th century BC. Then you are going to debark near the ancient port of Caunos where ruins will be available for the sightseers. Caunos was a main port during the Hellenistic period around 5th century BC.
After that exciting journey on the river you will direct towards the Mud Baths. They are very useful for your skin and some experts said that this could make you look younger. However the main idea is to have some entertainment and indeed you have. It’s so much fun for both child and adults. Of course after this incredible experience there are plenty of showers so you can go further clean.
Next stop of this unique trip will be the well known Turtle Beach. On it Carretta-Carretta turtles lay their eggs. On that place you will be able to swim for an hour. Moreover guides will show you where the nests of the turtles are and give you some information about the region, the flora and fauna. Staying on that beach is unforgettable but bring your camera as you may want to take a photos. On one side is the Aegean Sea water and on the other side of the beach is the non-salt river water. All that area is like a part of the heaven.
Then you will go back to the boat and Marmaris or what was the start destination of your case. On your way back there will be a break so you will be able to jump off the boat and swim. The trip really great experience and I am sure you won’t regret it as it combines broading your knowledge about the nature and culture with entertainment.
