Datça

Datca_1

The picturesque quiet fishermen town Datça is on a peninsula surrounded by nature. From its unique location you have a panoramic view on the Greek islands Rhodos, Kos and Simi. The small town is not discovered yet by mainstream tourism and is famous for its high oxygen level in the air and the low humidity. Even in the hottest summer months there is always a gentle welcoming breeze.

The coast line and the sea are stunningly beautiful and there are plenty quiet little bays where you can enjoy the beautiful scenery in peace.

In the centre of Datça you can visit the natural hot water spring. Between 4000 and 5000 liters of water flows into the sea every minute.

Old Datça or ‘’Eski Datça’’ is located about 4km from the small harbour. This was historically the old centre and original administrative core of Datça. Strolling around makes you feel that you are going back in time by decades.

While you are walking down the narrow streets you can enjoy the old architecture of the houses which has remained intact to this day.

Datça is also associated with the notable native and poet Can Yücel who spent the last decades of his life in this charming small town and is also buried here.
