Datca is in the South West of Turkey, at the tip of the peninsula that divides the Mediterranean from the Aegean Sea . The coastline has both high cliffs and shallow sandy beaches, running down to the clearest blue sea. Inland you can find the stunning contrast of dramatic mountain scenery and delightful old villages and farmlands . A beautiful seaside town, with many Greek influences, Datca has not been developed as a foreign holiday resort, although travellers from many countries have found their way here. Bodrum , Greece and Marmaris are easily accessible if you desire more nightlife than Datca currently offers. Rich in history, the region exudes simple tranquillity and you will find it hard to resist Datças undeniable charms. The pleasant climate of this idyllic Peninsula will fascinate you. The low humidity in conjunction with constant cooling sea breezes diminishes the effects of the intense heat.
The extremely oxygen-rich air makes Datca (Cnidus) a very healthy place to live in. Could this be, why the most
ancient medical schools known to man were established in this region? The afflicted came here to find a cure. This
"Magic Climate" is ideal for people with heart, circulatory, nervous and rheumatic diseases.
Dear Mr. Sen: Our family greatly enjoyed our vacation in Turkey, including the tour of Western Turkey arranged by Ezop Travel.
The guide you provided, Timur, was well-informed, friendly and a good travel companion.
We appreciated that he was flexible as well, for example when we decided we'd seen enough Roman and
Greek ruins and asked to substitute an afternoon on the beach for the ruins at Troy.
