The coast on Dalyanagzi beach is very shallow for the first 40-50 steps, after that the water gets pretty deep and can get very wavy in the early evenings. You can choose to sunbathe or take a swim in the Mediterranean and enjoy a relaxing day at Dalyanagzi. Another thing you can do is take a boat ride to the various other locations in Dalyan.
