Dilek Peninsula National Park is a unique part of the world and where almost all the plants which can be seen along the coasts from the Mediterranean to the Caucasus are naturally seen together. National Park is a natural land with raptors and wild animals and the underwater richness surrounding it, and on the other hand hundreds of bird species. It is a delta with a rich variety of fish and a natural wonder with historical and cultural richness surrounding them. Dilek Peninsula National Park was declared a national park in 1994.
