Kaptan June's Hut was returned to the beach in 2010. The hut has been renovated and its mural restored. You find it in a lovely situation under the shade of old pine trees on the eastern end of Iztuzu Beach, just 2 minutes away from the parking area.

Now that the Kaptan June Sea Turtle Conservation Foundation has officially been recognized, the "Baraka" has become a small public relations centre. You find a variety of keepsakes, some of which are listed below.

A truly interesting and historical place with Carian Rock Tombs and the ancient Roman City of Caunos, overlooking the delta, beach and out to sea.
The story of Kaptan June, as she is known locally, is a gripping, amusing and pragmatic account which is firmly placed in its local setting. June tells the story of the campaign and how it divided the locals. Apart from that she tells about Turkish village life and the pleasures and pitfalls of life as a foreign woman in an Eastern culture.
