Dalaman is one of the towns of the province of Mugla that in recent years has begun to develope into a centre of tourism. There is everything required for tourism here but it was with the opening of the Dalaman Airport that tourism in the town gained momentum. In Dalaman, and especially on the Kapidag Peninsula, there are coves of extraordinary beauty, some of which can only be reached by sea. This is why these coves between Marmaris and Gocek are an ideal point for anchoring for the Blue Cruise Gulets. However, some of the coves, such as Sarsala, can be accessed by road. The Dalaman River is the best for rafting and the best time for rafting is between May and October.
