Datça Peninsula

It is the meeting point of the Aegean and the Mediterranean, the piece of heaven in Turkey with its untouched nature, turquoise sea, beautiful coves, fresh air, honey, almonds and fish. Datça is sunny for 300 days a year.

“The climate is at full human height. Neither heat nor cold is beyond human endurance. There is no need to correct the climate with a coat, stove or fan.”
Fisherman of Halicarnassus

Birsen Akkaraca, poet from Datça

If you want to see a natural wonder
Datça peninsula in the south of the Aegean
Surrounded by sea on three sides, decorated
You think the beaches are embroidered like lace

Knidos to the west is a living witness to history
He was born and lived there, our symbol Aphrodite
It has been home to the most civilized nations for centuries.
But neglected and forgotten years

The beauty of nature is like a real paradise
You see, advanced civilization in Datça
Our Datça embraces the sun in four seasons
Fresh air, plenty of oxygen, focus on health

The last point where the Mediterranean meets the Aegean
Sea blue, sky blue, purple mountains on the horizon
Sun, sea, beach, sand is the key to health
Datça is the land of long-lived people
