Seal Sighting

Went for a walk along Dalaman beach this morning and saw a large seal swimming in the sea. It was about 50-60mtrs from the beach and straight in front of us. We watched it for about 5mins before it swam off

Has anyone else seen seals in this area before?

Hi Matty,

Also saw a crab...alive too!

But did see a dead bloated goat, a long way down the beach, toward the Hilton hotel.

Not too much glass on the beach this morning pleased to say. You must have done a good job last week. Hope the weather holds out as its meant to rain tomorrow I think. We have plans for tomorrow, so unable to join you, sorry.

Linda

What a shame that Dalaman beach isn't a more picturesque area. It could be so nice if was just cleaned up a bit.

Re: Seal Sighting

it was probably a monk seal as there is a protected colony along the stretch of coast around Anamur. They are an endangered species and efforts are being made by WWF and local fishermen to protect their habitats.
