The Datca peninsula, located on the southeast of the Mugla city and between the Gokova gulf and Hisaronu gulf,

is where all your dreams come true thanks to its incredibly clean sea, fresh air, peerlessly shining sun,

natural beauties and mythological enchantment.


Datca is an about 100 km long peninsula located to the west of Marmaris.

Here, the coast protrudes like a finger into the sea and divides it into the northern part, the Aegean,

and the southern part, the Mediterranean.

The narrowest part of the peninsula is less than one kilometre wide, offering

a spectacular view of both sides of the sea.


The small, traditional fishing village Datca is situated on the southwestern part of the peninsula about

one hour away from Marmaris and about three hours away from Dalaman airport.

With its 5,200 inhabitants, the village is still very peaceful and quiet and wins over its visitors with its unspoilt

and extraordinary landscape. Datca is a good choice for all travellers who want to escape mass tourism.

With mountains in the background and a fantastic view over the vast, almost 10 kilometre long bay, you have the

opportunity to relax and take a break from everyday life.

The healthy and pleasantly dry climate improves the relaxation effect considerably.

Datca's flora is especially rich. Colourful flowers, spices and various healing herbs grow on the

fields and mountain sides.

Almonds, olives, honey and fish are of world class quality.

For individual tourists, the best time to travel is between May and June and between September and October.
