With its northern coast lying on the Aegean Gulf of Gökova and the Mediterranean Sea lapping its southern shores, the Datça Peninsula serves up an endless panorama of wildflower-covered hills, jagged coastal cliffs and golden beaches. Marking the last stretch of Turkey’s legendary Turquoise Coast, the peninsula makes a popular destination for both single- and multi-day cruises from nearby Bodrum or Marmaris.

With dozens of beaches and snorkeling areas, most visitors to the peninsula spend their time on the coast, but there’s plenty of interest inland, too. Take a hike through forests and orange groves, tour a traditional olive mill, browse the weekly markets in the town of Datça or discover the ancient city of Knidos, a sprawling archaeological site best known for its timeworn sundial and statue of Aphrodite dating back to fourth century B.C.

Practical Info

The Datça Peninsula lies on Turkey’s southwest coast on the south Aegean Sea.
