Holidays with 18 month old toddler

We are having an extended family holiday for a week in a villa in

Dalyan at the end of September. The villa is well equipped with baby equipmment, but we are wondering whether to hire a car/van for the 51/2 of us or to just book a transfer from the airport (Dalaman).

Also can anyone advise on things to do in Dalyan, bearing in mind the toddler. She has very fair skin, so I guess the boat trip to the beach would be a non starter.

Thanks

The boat trip to the beach would be brilliant and they are covered boats with shade. There are umbrellas on the beach to rent so you should be okay. You could visit the turtle hospital that would be fun at the bus end of the beach. There is a park in the mosque square all the children appear to be there at night. Hope you have a lovely time.

Hi,

I would not discount a boat trip to the beach. Most of the boats have a top so if you get on the shaded side ( left side going I think ) you will not suffer from the sun. The boats run regular so you need not spend too long on the beach. The trip takes about 35 / 40 mins. There is a small cafe at the beach in the shade too. We take a red haired little person and have never had a problem. Obviously slap on the sun block and a hat. We only usually spend a couple of hours on the beach when she is with us.
