How to Get There

Datça Peninsula lies on Turkey’s southwest coast between the Aegean and Mediterranean seas. The most popular way to reach the peninsula is through Bodrum and taking a cruise from there. Otherwise, fly from Istanbul to Dalaman (which is just over an hour flight), rent a car and drive to the peninsula; travel times vary according to the destination.

Bozburun Peninsula The Bozburun Peninsula is a tiny mountainous peninsula on the larger Datça Peninsula, jutting out of its southern coast into the Mediterranean Sea. Popular for its sleepy sandy beaches, ancient cities, and lively nightlife, Bozburun is easily explored on a Jeep safari or as a stop during a yacht cruise. Go to the waterfalls and a carpet weavers association in the village of Turgut, or have a meal in the chic Selimiye.
