Tourism Information |
Köyceğiz is a town and district of Muğla Province in the Mediterranean region of Turkey. The town of Köyceğiz lies at the northern end of a lake of the same name - Köyceğiz Lake which is joined to the Mediterranean Sea by a natural channel called Dalyan Delta. Its unique environment is being preserved as a nature and wildlife sanctuary. In Köyceğiz there is a 2 kilometer long promenade along the waters edge, a small sandy beach and a 50 acre Municipality Camping Area surrounded by Sigla trees. Köyceğiz Lake is calm up until noon for canoeing but by afternoon cool breezes blow making it suitable for windsurfing. The Water Sports Club supported by the Köyceğiz Municipality organizes races and many courses at a Water Sports Camp - A Training Center with a 9 bed capacity serving the participants. In Köyceğiz there are 2 towns and 18 villages within the district. Special Environmental Protection Department was established in the district with 24 staff serving. Köyceğiz-Dalyan Environmental Protection Project under the Solid Waste Storage facilities are under construction. At the edge of Köyceğiz Lake is Sultaniye where natural hot springs have been directed into pools holding this hot water for bathing. The water temperature is usually around 38 degrees celcius unless the level of the lake rises to blend with the spring water. The sulphur rich air around these is said to be a cure for asthma and other lung ailments. A little further down the road are hot streams coming straight out of the side of the mountain and flowing into the lake. Many people drink these waters for all kinds of ills and pains.
