In Dalyan from 19th to 31st December

I am returning to Dalyan for the festive period. Maybe not the obvious choice for a Christmas destination but I as I am thinking of buying in Dalyan I thought it would be a good idea to visit out of season to see what it is like.
I know most of the bars-restaurants will be closed so not expecting to see lots of night life, which is fine with me. I want some peace and quiet. However would be good to make some connections with some Brits who are in Dalyan and talk over what it is like to live there.

I am wondering if there are any events going on during my stay. Have joined a couple of facebook groups so have discovered about the Thursday volunteers rubbish collecting which I might join if I can borrow a pair of wellies and weather is OK.
Some of my time will hopefully be spent exploring the area and looking at a few houses with a view to purchase one.

Hi cside

The Riverbums will be cleaning whenever the weather is good enough so just turn up on a Thursday morning at 10:00!

There is also the opportunity to visit the dog shelter which is a wonderful experience, they are well fed and looked after. Their environment is also very good, the more people that go there and give them a stroke or take them for a walk will help too.

If you are interested let me know or conract Mebrue at Dohakder in the market square for info.

Regards
Phil

Re: In Dalyan from 19th to 31st December

There is the usual Christmas Eve get-together on the beach from about midday. Usually everyone brings something food-wise which is put on the tables for anyone to eat, and good to bring beer or wine or whatever your tipple.
The local Dolmus (bus) service does run to the beach on this day, but you would need to find out the exact times beforehand. Almost all of Dalyan turns up, and people of all nationalities from ouside Dalyan - Dalaman, Fethiye etc - it is good fun and a great way of meeting people.
Two restaurants are providing the full Christmas Dinner - Remsis and Temsis, but you will be here in Dalyan with enough time to sort out your Christmas Day if you want to join in, and where you will want to be.
Finally there are two quizzes - another good place to meet people.
One is Sunday at 1.00pm in the Cicek Restaurant,(opposite Metin Pide) and there are snacks like pide to be had, and the other is on a Thursday at Jiks (opposite Migros) at 7.30pm, and again there is food to be had there. Everyone is welcome, whether on your own, or in a couple or group and really you don't have to be very brainy to join in!
There is also a Salsa evening with a lesson first and then dancing on a Tuesday evening at Bob Dalyan Hotel from about 7.30pm I think.
So it may not be as quiet as you think: a couple of bars at the top of Dalyan open all winter and are very cosy - Brothers Bar and My Place next door, and of course the aformentioned Jiks.
Bring your own wellies because the weather may be very wet, some waterproof gear and warm clothing. Maybe some days you could get by with a t-shirt, but will always need very warm clothing once the sun has disappeared
I hope you enjoy your time here - it is very different to the summer months!

Re: In Dalyan from 19th to 31st December

Hi i am also going to Dalyan on Boxing day,
it is very quite tho time of year i was there in january and november this year?
i am moving there in march and getting married in August, my other half owns a restaurant in dalyan and he is open most the year but in the winter its mainly traditional english food, try to mix with turkish and english as this is nicer than segregating yourself just with english.
as you must already know everyone is so so helpful.

Thanks for your post Hannah. Maybe it is unusual but I have got to know more Turks than Brits in my visits. The Brits I have met have usually been visitors like me rather than Dalyan residents. I am really looking forward to spending some time in Dalyan out of season and finding out what I think of Dalyan out of season.
