Caunos:

The ancient city of Caunos stands midway along the channel facing Dalyan. Settlement here is believed to date from 3000 BC by Caunos, the son of Miletos and it later grew into a major port on the border between Lycia and Caria. Sprawling over a broad sloping site overlooking the sea and the delta, the principal monuments to be seen in Caunos are the Acropolis surrounded by city walls, a theatre, four temples, an agora, stoa, nymphain, baths, palestra, churches and a cistern. The imposing Lycian rock tombs with their facades curved into the form of temples were the last resting place of the kings of Caunos. The city had two harbours, one for military use and the other for merchants. Inscriptions discovered on the nymphain have been found to cite customs regulations and have thrown valuable light on the economic life of the city

According to Independent

Whatever You Want: The Top 10 Beaches

6. Catch a water taxi in Turkey

Where: Iztuzu beach, Dalyan, Turkey

The vibe: Reached by a gentle 45-minute water taxi ride on a dolmus from Dalyan, Iztuzu lies at the mouth of a beautiful river delta. As the boat splutters through 10ft-high reeds, Lycian tombs slide by adorning the hillsides. The beach itself is a spit separating the delta from the sea, so you have the choice of freshwater or seawater swimming. Sun worshippers need armfuls of sunscreen as the only shade is at either end of the beach (and bear in mind that the beach is three miles long), where there are limited sun loungers and facilities.

The people: Euro crowd.

The look: Cheap and cheerful.

The drink: Efes Pilsen beer.

How to get there: Metak Holidays (020-8290 9292; metakholidays.co.uk) offers a seven-night b&b break at the two-star superior Ozalp Hotel from £359 per person, based on two sharing, including return flights to Dalyan and transfers
