The story of Iztuzu Beach?
The Dalaman Stream is in the ancient times that have flowed from Ortaca and Dalyan.
Today the majority of Ortaca and Dalyan’s Arıkbaşı Quarter are completely covered with sand and pebbles carried by the Dalaman Stream.
We know that the southwest part of Anatolia was badly affected by the great Rhodes earthquake in 226 BC or 227 BC. This earthquake changed the bed of Dalaman Stream.
This event created the miracle of Iztuzu. Without the Dalaman Stream, this time the drifting of the sand has reversed. The waves have begun to drift into the sand. The rocks in front of the Iztuzu Beach accumulate in the current location of the sand because of the speed of the waves. Thin gold whirlpool sand. They have kept gathering. One day they gathered together without knowing they would be home to Caretta Carettalar’s eggs.
