Köyceğiz is one of the 13 districts of Muğla. The history of Köyceğiz dates back to 3400 BC. The first civilization to exist in this region is Carians. Then, Scythians, Assyrians, Ionians, Dorians, Achaeans, Persians, Hellens, Seleykos, Romans, Seljuks, Menteşeoğulları and Ottomans dominated the region. Historian Herodot, geographer Strabon and British archaeologist Hoskin provide the first information about the history of Köyceğiz. In 2000 b.c, when the Greeks and Achaeans came to the Aegean shores by sea, new colonies were established on the coast and development was achieved with the colonies of the Carians in the interior. Thus, the district has reached a very good position in 1000 b.c. years. The city of Caunos, where Köyceğiz Lake joins the Mediterranean, has become one of the important ports and trade centers of Caria. Acropolis, famous shrines, and Harab and Susan castles are important historical artifacts.
