Abstract

Dalyan, a Mediterranean coastal settlement in south-western Turkey, is attracting a great deal of attention due to its natural and cultural value and tourism potential. The aim of this study was to evaluate the Dalyan coastline and its environment as a public open space to find out whether the space meets the needs of users. Responses to a questionnaire were used to propose solutions for developing the area's performance and identity.
